Abstract: The Fort Future force projection module is being developed to optimize, through simulation, the process of preparing and deploying equipment and personnel. The module will use a graphical user interface (GUI) to integrate data input through operational history, strategic planning, and hypothetical tactical scenarios, to evaluate existing force projection capabilities and plan future upgrades ?ultimately to meet Objective Force requirements. Utility systems are ?enablers? for the force projection process in that they provide the electricity, water, transportation fuel, heating, cooling, compressed air, and communications required for the various steps of force projection. 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. The system will enable the user to conduct utility system simulations using real-time data, as well as historical, generic, or hypothetical scenarios.
