dc.description.abstractTo sustain itself as the world's premier land power, the U.S. Army needs the capability to support expeditionary forces by projecting a minimal basing footprint with reduced logistical burdens. Strategically sited contingency bases (CBs) allow the Army’s expeditionary forces to rapidly respond throughout a joint area of operations. To assist with this goal, the Army is funding work in the Engineer Site Identification for the Tactical Environment (ENSITE) program, which is dedicated to empowering military planners with the data and knowledge to site CB locations. The work reported here explores reasonable analytical framings for the site suitability analysis, including identification of appropriate methods, criteria, and parameters for evaluating different spatial areas for suitability as new CBs. This work utilizes the specialized capabilities and knowledge of the U.S. Army Engineer, Research, and Development Center’s Risk and Decision Science team (RADS), who worked with ENSITE colleagues and subject matter experts to identify key factors relevant for locating CBs.en_US
