Abstract: Utility systems are ?enablers?for the force projection process. They provide the electricity, water, transportation fuel, heating, cooling, compressed air, and communications required for the various steps of force projection. To sustain a successful campaign, deployed soldiers must arrive ?combat-ready? with all necessary supplies, power, water, and fuel. The existing utility infrastructure may not be adequate to mobilize and deploy future AC and RC. This work will develop methods, simulation tools, and models to enable installation and military planners to plan, assess, optimize, and monitor the ability of utility systems to support Army force projection. Users will be able to conduct utility system simulations using real-time data, as well as historical, generic, or hypothetical scenarios. The utility module will interface as a component of the large-scale Fort Future Force Projection package.
