Abstract
Canadian Forces (CF) are expected to evolve in adaptive dispersed operations characterized by future security environments (FSE) and time-varying, hostile and uncertain contexts which involve major challenges in delivering effective and efficient In-Theatre logistics and sustainment. This document introduces background information on current CF In-Theatre logistics organization and defines a contextual problem setting for the development of new technology concepts for a sustainment management decision support system capability. The proposed supply network distribution problem setting is believed to offer a suitable context for better defining tactical sustainment decision support requirements for adaptive dispersed operations, and developing decision support capability components for In-Theatre logistics planning and sustainment missions. These decision support capability components are mainly aimed at reducing human overload, sense-and-respond cycle, and logistics cost and footprint, as well as closing gaps between information-sharing and decision-making, and between planning and execution monitoring.
