Notice of Advisory Committee Meeting.


The Defense Science Board Task Force on Mobility will meet in closed session on March 17, 2005, in Arlington, VA. This Task Force will identify the acquisition issues in improving our strategic mobility capabilities.

The mission of the Defense Science Board is to advise the Secretary of Defense and the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics on scientific and technical matters as they affect the perceived needs of the Department of Defense. At this meeting, the Defense Science Board Task Force will review: the part transport plays in our present-day military capability—the technical strengths and weaknesses the operational opportunities and constraints; the possible advantage of better alignment of current assets with those in production and those to be delivered in the very near future; how basing and deployment strategies—CONUS-basing, prepositioning (ashore or afloat), and seabasing—drive our mobility effectiveness; the possible advantages available from new transport technologies and systems whose expected IOC dates are either short term (~ 12 years) or, separately, the long term (~ 25 years).

In accordance with Section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92-463, as amended (5 U.S.C. App. 2), it has been determined that this Defense Science Board Task Force meeting concerns matters listed in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) and that, accordingly, the meeting will be closed to the public.
