SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. (USTCNS) --- Osan Air Base in South Korea hosted the Defense Logistics Agency's Node Management and Deployable Depot Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) April 27 through May 11.

The demonstration evaluated the ability of the Defense Distribution Center's Deployable Distribution Center to rapidly deploy to a theater and provide distribution support to military contingency and humanitarian relief operations.

"The Deployable Distribution Center is a key initiative addressing the historic problem of loss of asset visibility, clogged pipelines and the creation of 'iron mountains' experienced in every major conflict since World War II," said Col. Kurt Andrews, deputy logistics officer for U.S. Pacific Command.

U.S. Pacific Command, the ACTD Operational Manager, and the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific Experimentation Center conducted the assessment, which included everything from receiving, processing and shipping cargo to information system interoperability.

From an enterprise perspective, U.S. Transportation Command participants examined how the Deployable Distribution Center's capabilities support establishing a single, unified Joint Deployment and Distribution Enterprise capable of rapidly delivering materiel from the source of supply to the point of need.

"No supply chain initiative is an island unto itself," said Maj. James Groark, who works in USTRANSCOM's Distribution Process Owner Integration Branch.

All assessment team members emphasized that forging effective supply chain partnerships between the Deployable Distribution Center and other theater opening capabilities such as USTRANSCOM's Joint Task Force-Port Opening and the Army's Sustainment Brigade will be key to establishing and optimizing an expeditionary distribution network.

"In addition to assessing the performance of the Deployable Distribution Center, this ACTD provides an opportunity for Department of Defense supply chain partners to get boots on the ground and explore the right mix of processes, organizations, and (information technology) enablers to optimize distribution during theater opening operations," Groark said.
