Summary
This report is a study on wartime requirements for Operational Support Airlift (OSA) across the Department of Defense (DoD). OSA aircraft are used to meet short notice, generally smaller cargo and passenger requirements that cannot be met by regularly scheduled tactical resupply aircraft. The Joint Staff's study found that the joint wartime requirement for OSA is 391 aircraft, or about 100 less than the fleet that existed at the time of the study. You asked us to determine if the 391 aircraft level was excessive. As a result, we (1) recalculated the Joint Staff's estimate using the same computenzed model and (2) determined how changes in the flight frequency assumptions affected the calculation of the aircraft requirements. In May 1995, the Commission on Roles and Missions reviewed DoD'S post-Cold War direction and the plans to proceed in that direction. Among other things, its report concluded that there were too many OSA aircraft and recommended changes to eliminate the excess capacity. In response, the Deputy Secretary of Defense asked the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to determine wartime requirements and to recommend management changes to improve efficiency. The Joint Staff subsequently formed an OSA working group to study the matter
