NATO Logistics Handbook

INTRODUCTION
“According to an old military adage ‘Amateurs talk about strategy, generals talk about logistics’.” - George J. Church, 1990 Ths Handbook, publshed under the auspces of the Senor NATO Logstcans’ Conference (SNLC), s ntended as a smple gude to logstcs n NATO. It does not attempt to examne current ssues or provde answers to the problems that logstcans wll face, but t rather ams at ntroducng them to some of the basc prncples, polces, concepts and organsatons wth whch they wll work. Ths s the first update of the Handbook snce 1997. Snce then, NATO and the securty envronment n whch t must operate have undergone profound changes. The logstc support concepts that are requred to ensure the deployablty and sustanablty of NATO forces have changed as well, bearng lttle semblance to those extant n 1997. These new concepts have been reflected n ths new edton. The Allance s an organsaton that contnues to evolve to meet emergng securty challenges and NATO logstc polces and concepts wll need keep pace. Therefore, the contnung usefulness of the Handbook wll depend on the regularty of ts updatng, whch wll be an ongong process. If any reader has suggestons for ts mprovement or amendment, he s asked to forward them to the SNLC Secretarat. The NATO Logstcs Handbook s not a formally agreed document, and should not be quoted as a reference. It does not necessarly represent the offical opnon or poston of NATO, the natons, commands or agences on all the polcy ssues dscussed.

FUNDAMENTALS OF NATO LOGISTICS “I don’t know what the hell this ‘logistics’ is … but I want some of it!” - Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, 1942 INTRODUCTION Durng the Cold War, NATO followed the prncple that logstcs was a natonal responsblty. Accordngly, ts only focus at that tme was the establshment of and complance wth overall logstcs requrements. Ths prncple governed NATO’s plans and actons untl the begnnng of the 1990’s, when t was understood and accepted that the strategc stuaton that had underpnned ths prncple had undergone a fundamental change. As early as n January 1996, NATO logstcans recognsed the new challenges facng the Allance. In partcular, the downszng of mltary resources underscored the necessty of ncreased co-operaton and multnatonalty n logstc support. These new challenges requred the Allance to be able to logstcally sustan and operate n non-artcle 5 / Crss Response Operatons (CRO), possbly at a far dstance from the supportng natonal logstc and ndustral bases and on non NATO sol, where a supportve or functonng host naton was not exstent. All of ths needed to be performed under the legal condtons of peace, wth no access to moblsaton and/or emergency legslaton. Addtonally, there was the need to ntegrate non-NATO mltary forces and ther logstc support. The Senor NATO Logstcans’ Conference (SNLC), as the Allance’s senor body on logstcs, then undertook to translate the Allance’s New Strategc Concept nto responsve, flexble and nteroperable logstc prncples and polces. In ths regard, t first developed a vson for NATO logstcs amed at addressng the challenge of developng collectve responsblty n logstcs between NATO and the natons. Such collectve responsblty s attaned through close co-ordnaton and co operaton between natonal and NATO authortes durng both plannng and executon, and ncludes greater consderaton of the efficent use of cvl resources. As a result of ther experences n NATO led operatons, natons have ganed an apprecaton of the value of a collectve approach to logstc support and have lent ther ardent support to the mplementaton of ths vson. Whle NATO s responsble for co-ordnatng and prortsng the provson of logstc support to deployed NATO forces, each naton s responsble for ensurng, ether ndvdually or through co-operatve arrangements, the provson of the logstc resources requred to support ts own forces. Co-ordnated logstc plannng s therefore an essental aspect of the efficent and economcal use of resources throughout ther lfe cycle, from ntal desgn to ther ultmate dsposal.

CHAPTER 1

DEFINITIONS Vewed from the lfe cycle perspectve, logstcs s the brdge between the deployed forces and the ndustral base that produces the weapons and materel that the forces need to accomplsh ther msson. NATO therefore defines logstcs as: « Logistics: The scence of plannng and carryng out the movement and mantenance of forces. In ts most comprehensve sense, the aspects of mltary operatons whch deal wth: - esgn and development, acquston, storage, transport, dstrbuton, d mantenance, evacuaton and dsposal of materel1; - transport of personnel; - cquston or constructon, mantenance, operaton and dsposton of a facltes; - acquston or furnshng of servces; and - medcal and health servce support.»

Ths definton covers a wde range of responsbltes that nclude a number of dfferent domans of work wthn NATO. If one consders that logstcs comprses both the buldng up of stocks and capabltes and the sustanment of weapons and forces, then t s clear that a dstncton can be made between three mportant aspects of logstcs, spannng the lfe cycle of logstc resources: producton, n servce support and consumpton. The followng defintons of these aspects enjoy wdespread acceptance wthn the NATO logstcs communty: “ Production Logistics (also known as: acquisition logistics): that part of logstcs concernng research, desgn, development, manufacture and acceptance of materel. In consequence, producton logstcs ncludes: standardsaton and nteroperablty, contractng, qualty assurance, procurement of spares, relablty and defence analyss, safety standards for equpment, specficatons and producton processes, trals and testng (ncludng provson of necessary facltes), codficaton, equpment documentaton, configuraton control and modficatons. At NATO Headquarters the lead authortes are the Internatonal Staff (IS) Defence Investment Dvson (DI) and the Armaments Branch of the Logstcs and Resources Dvson (L&R) n the Internatonal Mltary Staff (IMS). The Conference of Natonal Armaments Drectors (CNAD) s the senor NATO commttee that s prncpally responsble for the co-ordnaton of ths aspect of logstcs.” “ In-Service Logistics: that part of logstcs that brdges producton and consumer logstcs and comprses those functons assocated wth procurng, recevng, storng, dstrbutng and dsposng of materel that s requred to mantan the equpment and supply the force. The NATO Mantenance and Supply Organsaton (NAMSO) s the prncpal NATO organsaton responsble for ths area.”
Materiel: equipment in its widest sense including vehicles, weapons, ammunition, fuel, etc.

In consequence. operaton and dsposal of materel. but co-operatve L logstcs could be descrbed as follows: « NATO Co-operatve Logstcs s the totalty of blateral and multlateral consumer and producton logstcs arrangements to optmse n a co ordnated and ratonalsed way.

Co-operative ogistics: there s no NATO definton yet. Development of NATO Co operatve Logstcs arrangements s largely facltated by the use of NATO Producton and Logstcs Organsatons (NPLOs). the use of multnatonal logstcs as a tool to enhance efficency and effectveness becomes of utmost mportance. Although there s not yet any agreed NATO definton of Multnatonal Logstcs. safety standards for storage. there are two addtonal aspects that have to do wth the way n whch logstcs functons are performed.

The engneerng msson brdges the gap from logstcs to operatons and s closely related to the ultmate success of both. Host Nation Support (HNS) The avalablty of HNS offsets requrements for general and organc mltary support and thereby affects the sze and scope of the Combat Servce Support (CSS) force that must be commtted to an operaton. and return casualtes to duty.

The NATO Defence Plannng perod covers ten years. - Plannng Targets.

Principles of NATO Standardisation The followng prncples gude the applcaton of NATO Standardsaton: - General lliance Objectives. - Harmonisation of standardisation with NATO defence planning. Co ordnaton among NATO defence plannng dscplnes s essental for harmonsaton and achevement of nteroperablty. Full complance wth the force goals for natons partcpatng n force plannng s a key —56— . consequently. Implementaton s then revewed n PARP Assessment. wll a NATO standard be developed. - eedback.

For natons concerned. nteroperablty.Aim The am of NATO standardsaton s to enhance the Allance’s operatonal effectveness through the attanment of nteroperablty among NATO forces. Only when no applcable cvl standard s avalable. compatblty. and addtonally between NATO forces and forces of Partners and other natons. Unty of effort s enhanced by harmonsaton and co o ordnaton of standardsaton actvtes wth Natons. and specfically from the Allance Strategc Concept and the Mnsteral Gudance for defence plannng actvtes n NATO. - Attainment of standardisation level. Industry’s capablty to satsfy mltary requrements belongs entrely to the economc system of the member natons. force plannng s a key focus for the standardsaton process through the force goals and defence revew cycles. - Unity f effort. - Use f civil standards. The Allance wll use sutable cvl standards o to the maxmum practcable extent. In some nstances. In prncple standardsaton s voluntary N for natons that shall mplement standards as applcable and to the maxmum possble extent. Natons should acheve the levels of standardsaton ndcated n the Standardsaton Requrement. the achevement of NATO standardsaton s hghly dependent on the poltcal wll of the Alles to commt themselves to the necessary efforts.

These ntatves broke new ground and moved away from NATO’s statc regonal defence posture to develop NATO’s expedtonary capablty and ts ablty to meet the modern global threats. It s mportant to understand that the Jont Force Command (JFC) selects the forces requred and talors them to the specfic msson at hand. the force package for a humantaran msson wll be dfferent from a hostle Intal Entry Operaton. Logstcs s a key enabler for the NRF. and dstlls a broad range of NATO Logstc Polces and Prncples nto a forward-lookng concept for definng the specfic modaltes requred to most effectvely support NATO expedtonary operatons.

Establshng ths capablty based on the MJLC as a core nucleus becomes a vtal step n the mplementaton of MC 526. The mplementaton of MC 526 s the man effort n the ongong transformaton of NATO logstc wthn Alled Command Operatons (ACO) and ts success s consdered as a prerequste to multnatonal logstcs n NATO operatons. so that he s able to redrect logstc resources to best sut hs operatonal msson.

To llustrate ths.e. A natural consequence s the utlzaton of multnatonal logstcs solutons thereby reducng Natonal Support Elements (NSEs). MC 526 ncreases the relance on a more centralzed logstc organsaton wth expanded C2 and drect responsblty for the provson of theatre level sustanment. jontness and the optmum adopton of multnatonal logstc solutons.

However. Overall. Phase 2 requres the efforts of both JFCs and natons. pre generaton. THE MULTINATIONAL JOINT LOGISTIC CENTRE CONCEPT: AJP-4. The SCs have developed the MJLC Doctrne n order to assume the enhanced logstc authortes and responsbltes of NATO Commanders and to enable NATO headquarters at the dfferent levels of command to properly co-ordnate the logstc support wthn ther area of responsblty. The full mplementaton of MC 526 has two fundamental phases: - hase 1: the establshment and tranng of a certfied JLSG HQ. An NRF Medcal Support Concept (MC 551) has been developed n lne wth the requrements set by MC 477 and MC 526. Ths requres hgh transparency and co operaton from Troop Contrbutng Natons. lean and deployable force. ACO s responsble for achevng Phase 1 and makng the JLSG HQ a realty. Phase 1 s a crucal step to convnce natons to contrbute logstc elements to the CJSOR. MC 551 – Medical Support Concept for NRF Operations NRF operatonal employment prncples also demanded changes n the way n whch NATO provdes medcal support to deployed unts. In ths context. the expanson of multnatonal logstc solutons would be more dfficult. The successful mplementaton of MC 526 rests squarely on the ablty of ACO to establsh a JLSG HQ from wthn the NCS and should ACO fal meetng ths challenge. tranng and certficaton of assets for the JLSG P CJSOR.10(A). the logstc support system and structures also needed to be adapted to that process. —97— . The NRF Logstc Concept offers the natons a real potental for resource savngs. Ths apples not only to the number of exstng or emergng multnatonal unts but also to the deeper multnatonal ntegraton at lower levels of command. MC 551 concentrates on the composton and preparaton of the Medcal Task Force for a specfic NRF rotaton.

To ths end. the SCs have mplemented a programme to negotate standng HNS Memorandum of Understandng (MOU) wth NATO and PfP Natons. Where a SOFA wth a HN does not exst. Ths does not preclude blateral arrangements between partes. a Transt Agreement wll be concluded between NATO HQ and the HN to authorse the transt of alled forces and goods through the HN’s terrtory. Wthn the context of HNS. Ths may not be possble n regard to many natons.

Because the responsblty for equppng ther forces s a prerogatve of ndvdual member natons. by NATO. To the extent possble. There s therefore no formal or centralsed NATO armaments plannng system. whch s publshed as AAP-20. However.PROCEDURES FOR ARMAMENTS CO-OPERATION Armaments co-operaton under the CNAD s based essentally on an nformaton exchange process that seeks agreement between natons and the SCs on harmonsed operatonal requrements n order to promote co-operatve equpment programmes. It should not be regarded as a set of formal and mandatory steps n the mplementaton of CNAD projects. two major Plannng/ programmng systems have been ntroduced n NATO: Conventonal Armaments Plannng System (CAPS) and the Phased Armaments Programmng System (PAPS).

IN-SERVICE LOGISTICS

IN-SERVICE LOGISTICS “Understand that the foundation of an army is the belly. It is necessary to procure nourishment for the soldier wherever you assemble him and whenever you wish to conduct him.” - Frederick II of Prussia, 1747 INTRODUCTION In-Servce Logstcs s closely related to Producton Logstcs and s an ntegral part of the System Lfe Cycle Management (SLCM). Although n servce support relates to those actvtes requred to assure that weapon system/ equpment s avalable and fit for use, t actually begns wth the decson to brng the new system nto the nventory. In servce logstc plannng starts at the outset of a system desgn. It s crtcal to determne the mantenance and support concepts as early as possble because approxmately 60% to 80% of a defence system’s Total Ownershp Cost (TOC) occur after that system s put nto operaton. More mportantly, the magntude of that cost s determned durng the desgn and development phase. For these reasons, the mantenance and support concepts need to be determned up front. Ths concept s known as Integrated Logstc Support. Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) ILS s the delberate ntegraton of systems/equpment logstc support consderatons nto the system lfe cycle management durng the outset of the programme/project. ILS prescrbes that all elements of logstc support be planned, acqured, tested and provded n a tmely and cost-effectve manner. NATO polcy specfics that all financal and other resources requred to mantan operatonal avalablty receve equal emphass as those requred to acheve performance objectves and tmely equpment delvery. The SNLC developed ALP-10 on Integrated Logstc Support n 1991 to support the Allance’s ambton. ILS s structured around the lfecycle management model detaled n the Phased Armaments Programmng System (PAPS – see chapter 13). Ths model portrays the total lfe span of a system, commencng wth msson-need evaluaton and extends through the n-servce phase to ts eventual dsengagement. The model apples to both common and jontly funded projects. Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) LSA s a structured process ntended to define, analyse and quantfy logstc support requrements and to nfluence desgn for supportablty, throughout system development. LSA stresses smplcty by dentfyng an optmal level of logstc requrements. The objectve of LSA s to enable optmum system performance and avalablty at mnmum lfe cycle cost. LSA s conducted on an nteractve bass throughout the acquston cycle through the use of studes, trade-offs, servce advce and test and evaluaton leadng to successve desgn refinement.

CHAPTER 14

Durng desgn, the analyss s orented towards assstng the desgn engneerng n ncorporatng logstc requrements nto equpment desgn. Ths ncludes ncorporaton of key logstc-related desgn objectves, relablty, mantanablty and testablty. As the project progresses, the LSA process concentrates on provdng detaled descrptons of specfic resources requred to support a system throughout ts n-servce phase by provdng tmely vald data for all areas of ILS. That data s used to plan, acqure and poston support resources (personnel, fundng and materel) to ensure that deployed systems meet ther avalablty requrements. Durng the later producton and n-servce phases of the project, feedback data are used to revew the contnung valdty of data to ensure that Lfe Cycle Cost (LCC) plans are beng realsed. Life Cycle Costing (LCC) LCC s the total sum of drect, ndrect, recurrng, non-recurrng and other related costs ncurred, or estmated to be ncurred, n the desgn, development, producton, operatons, mantenance and support of a major system over ts antcpated lfe span. LCC analyss s an teratve process that starts at the begnnng of the programme/project lfe cycle and contnues throughout the lfe cycle of the system. NATO PRODUCTION AND LOGISTIC ORGANISATIONS (NPLO) An NPLO s a subsdary body created wthn the framework of NATO for the mplementaton of tasks arsng out of the Treaty, and to whch the North Atlantc Councl (NAC) grants organsatonal, admnstratve and financal ndependence. The NPLO s establshed wth a vew to meetng, to the best advantage, the collectve requrements of partcpatng natons n relevant fields of desgn and development, producton, operatonal logstc support and management under the condtons agreed n ts Charter. An NPLO s open to all NATO natons who become member states by sgnng the Memorandum of Understandng (MOU). An NPLO normally conssts of: - Board of Drectors (BOD), n some cases called a Steerng Commttee a (SC), s the governng body actng wth regard to the collectve nterests of member natons. The representatves of each member naton represent ther naton’s poltcal, mltary, economc, financal and techncal nterests and fully partcpate n the BODs decson-makng process; - ubordnate commttee(s) establshed by the BOD as requred; and s - n Agency that s the executve managng body under the authorty of a a General Manager.
