Partially Operational
Not Operational

Even if Port is operational:


1) Does port have depth and piers
sufficient for Amphib or Prepo ships?
2) What is the overland transport
available from the green ports?
2) Do the green ports support
helicopter if overland transport is not
Available?
3) If helicopter transport is
required/desired, is there a central
transfer distribution point that will
service helicopter transfer ?
4) Are there enough helicopter assets
to move the supplies in an efficient
manner?

Strategic Lift

It takes 400 C-17s to do the job of 1 LMSR

Summary Comparison
It takes 54 C-17s to do the job of 1 LPD-17

LPD 17 also provides


hospital, C2, well deck
and flight deck ship-toshore capabilities,
water production
capability, and up to
800 Marines

Cost Compare
1 LPD 17 ~ 54 C-17s
1 LPD 17 ~ $110,760 to Haiti
1 C-17 ~ $22,400 to Haiti
54 C-17s ~ $1,209,600 to Haiti

1 LPD 17 ~ 11% of C-17 Cost

1 LMSR = 400 C-17s


1 LMSR = $88,140 to Haiti
400 C-17s = $8,960,000 to Haiti

1 LMSR < 1% of C-17


Cost
20

Strategic Lift by Sea is Green


Transport by ship is much more efficient than by air
and has a smaller CO2 footprint
1 LMSR = 400 C-17s
1 LPD 17 = 54 C-17s of cargo plus hospital, C2, and
welldeck capabilities
Moving 1 ton of cargo 1 mile by C-17 produces roughly 38
times more CO2 emissions than by LMSR

Sustaining security force assistance activities from


the sea reduces the burden on local infrastructure
and eliminates or minimizes the use of airlift
