Joint Flow and Analysis System for Transportation (JFAST)


Primary Purpose JFAST is a multi-modal transportation analysis

model designed for the U.S. Transportation

Command (USTRANSCOM) and the Joint Planning

Community. JFAST is used to determine

transportation requirements, perform course of

action analysis, and project delivery profiles of

troops and equipment by air, land, and sea.

Sub-Functions The Notional Requirements Generator (NRG) is a

subset of JFAST providing rapid course of action

development and estimation of transportation

feasibility when Time-Phased Force and Deployment

Data (TPFDD) does not exist or is insufficient

for conducting gross transportation analysis. The

NRG allows selection of major forces to be

deployed, specify approximate time phasing,

identify combat support/combat service support

and develop a sustainment wedge for forces being

deployed.

Equipment Requirements JFAST version 7.1.85 operates on Windows 95, 98

or Windows NT.

Connectivity Requirements JFAST operates as a stand-alone workstation, in a

client-server application, or interfaces with

Global Command and Control System (GCCS).

Crypto Requirements No internal Crypto. User determines based on

data.

Information Managed Input primarily comes from Joint Operation

Planning and Execution System (JOPES) in the form

of OPLAN TPFDDs and reference files. Additional

data files provided by transportation operating

commands of Air Mobility Command, Military

Sealift Command, and Military Traffic Management

Control. JFAST functions are transportation

analysis, data facilities, utilities, and NRG.

Products Created Data models origin out loading, transit to POE,

throughput constraints at POE, airlift and

sealift to POD, and throughput constraints at

POD. Focus on analysis and identification of

transportation bottlenecks. Presents graphic and

tabular output showing impact upon transportation resources, vehicles, and ports.

Lead Service/Contractor Functional OPR is USTRANSCOM/TCJ3-OP.

Current Fielding Status Fielded, in use within all services and several

support agencies of DoD.

Known Problems None reported.

DIICOE Compliance Rating Level 5.
