Deployability is the capability of an entire force (personnel and
cargo) to be moved intra-CONUS (Continental United States), inter-theater
(strategically), and intra-theater (tactically) to support a military
operation. DPA (Deployability Analysis) supports the Combatant Commander
by using sophisticated modeling and simulation tools to assess transportation
plans to include throughput, usage for nodes and routes, theater
lift assets required and used, potential bottlenecks, constraints,
and RSO&I. Typically, this analysis consists of several key
elements: transportation feasibility, throughput analysis, closure
profile, and infrastructure assessment. DPA assist deployment planners
in development and refinement of the Time Phased Force Deployment
Data (TPFDD) during deliberate planning, crisis action planning
and exercises. DPA has dedicated teams that support each of the
major warfighting Combatant Commanders.
Types of Combatant Commander support include deliberate
and crisis action planning, exercises
and programmatic studies.
