Title Sustainable Contingency Bases: Reducing the Logistical and Environmental Footprint.
Publication Date May 2011
Media Count 29p
Personal Author E. Keysar
Abstract Base Camp: An evolving military facility that supports the military operations of a deployed unit and provides the necessary support and services for sustained operations. Outline: Approach (energy, water, waste, and wastewater focus); Characterizing Contingency Bases (life cycle phase, size, age, function, location, and materiel flow); Applying a System of Systems Framework; Baseline Assessment (requirements and usage data for energy, power, water, wastewater, and solid waste); Technology Roadmap; and Technology Demonstrations. Potential Goals/Priorities: Reduce the overall operating costs for contingency bases, Reduce the number of supply convoys for contingency bases, Reduce the negative environmental impacts to the host nation from contingency base operations, Reduce the negative impacts to soldier health and safety from contingency base operations, and Reduce the environmental and energy footprint throughout the life cycle of materiel use at contingency bases.
