Abstract: Abstract: The U.S. military may be required to operate in dense urban and megacity environments, which may pose significant challenges for contingency basing. This work reviews and analyzes the potential disconnect between existing doctrine, standard operating procedures, and the human geographic reality of dense urban environments and megacities as concerns contingency basing. The work: (1) characterizes 41 projected megacities using the Army Chief of Staff’s Strategic Study Group’s megacity typology, (2) performs crosswalk analysis between this characterization and existing contingency basing doctrine, (3) details doctrinal gaps, specifically those pertaining to site selection, logistics, and security, and (4) recommends future research to alleviate those gaps.
