Abstract
A non-combatant evacuation operation (NEO) is designed to deploy forces in a short or no-notice situation as a result of a deteriorating situation in an affected nation that is threatening the safety of citizens living abroad. Large scale NEOs are extremely complex; often being conducted in a hostile environment, dealing with multiple uncertainties, and requiring whole of government expertise and coordination across multiple areas. The NEO process considered in this paper is illustrated in Figure 1.
