Abstract
As part of a larger study into the potential lfeet size requirements for a platform that would provide an Afloat Logistics and Sealift Capability to the Canadian Forces, an effort was made to benchmark the frequency and duration of the force employment for such a capability. A record of all the operations that the Canadian Forces has been involved in over the recent post Cold war period of 1990-99 was used to determine how often and for how long an Afloat Logistics and Sealift Capability was or might have been employed. This information was, in turn, used to calculate the baseline frequency and duration of employment of this capability across the eleven Canadian Forces Force Planning Scenarios. This research note documents this effort and reports on its results.
