Military and Industry Shaping the Future of Afloat Support & Naval Logistics
Effective afloat support is decisive in maintaining the wide spectrum of current naval operations around the globe, from supporting troops engaged in expeditionary missions to the protection of crucial shipping lanes. However with the need to rapidly replenish supplies at sea in increasingly hostile environments, there are many hurdles that need to be overcome to enhance platform survivability and improve the time it takes to transfer supplies.
Canadian efforts to procure new support vessels, the Philippines attempt at to modernise their naval resupply fleet in their 15-year Strategic National Development Plan, and Italy’s plan to purchase two new replenishment ships are evidence that the military are investing heavily in their ability to effectively replenish at sea.
