  • Achieving 80% of a MEB set on each MPSRONRequires more ships
  • Prepositioning ships

    1. 1. Marine Corps Seabasing “Assured Access for the 21st Century” February 2013 (Excerpts focused on Prepositioning Ships) Jim Strock Director, Seabasing Integration Division Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps Combat Development & Integration Quantico, Virginia 22134 703-784-6094UNCLASSIFIED james.strock@usmc.mil
    2. 2. Maritime Prepositioning Ships T- AKE LMSR T- AK MLP 2
    3. 3. MPF Enhancement Strategy• Roll-on roll-off cargo ships, coupled with mobile landing platforms, provide key enabling capabilities to fully leverage existing MPS capabilities – Selective offload • Increased ship stowage capacity allows for reconfigured loads across MPSRON for selective offload – In-stream offload of Large, Medium Speed RO/RO (LMSR) with Mobile Landing Platform (MLP) – Increased connector lift capacity with MLP – Increased ship-to-shore throughput T-AKE LMSR MLP 3
    4. 4. Mobile Landing Platform (MLP)34 berths • LMSR skin-skin moored Skin-to-skin ramp alongside MLP and fenders • Vehicles transfer from LMSR to MLP via side port ramp and onto LCACs • LCACs maneuver forces ashoreUtility Services (limited) foraccommodation FLO/FLObarges/modules 25,000 ft2 elevated vehicle stowage deck module Tankage capacities 100,000 gal Potable Water/ 3 LCAC lanes 380,000 gal JP5 with services 15 knots, 9,500 nm 4
