DEPLOYMENT PLANNING

AFI 10-403, 10 Jun 94, is supplemented as follows and applies to Headquarters Air Force Space Command (HQ AFSPC), its subordinate units, Air Force Reserve (AFRES) tenant units, and AFSPC-gained AFRES and Air National Guard (ANG) units.

SUMMARY OF REVISIONS
This supplement constitutes a complete rewrite of AFR28-4AFSPC1 and eliminates many nonessential procedures.

1.3. The office of primary responsibility (OPR) for command deployment guidance is HQ AFSPC Logistics Plans Division (LGX). HQ AFSPC staff functional managers will coordinate deployment guidance through HQ AFSPC/LGX prior to issuance. HQ AFSPC Assignments Division (DPA) acts as the command OPR and provides guidance for all PALACE BLITZ, PALACE EXERCISE, PALACE TENURE, and PALACE ENVOY deployments.

1.5.2. Additional IDO Responsibilitlies:

1.5.2.1(Added). Establish a Contingency Operations Mobility Planning/Execution System (COMPES) working group consisting of, as a minimum, IDO, unit deployment managers, manpower, and personnel representatives. Conduct meetings as required to address and discuss MANPER/LOGMOD and other deployment issues.

1.5.2.2(Added). Establish, with manpower and personnel, the Mobility Requirement Indicator (MRI) structure for the wing.

1.5.2.3(Added). Identify to the Military Personnel Flight specific MANPER-B reports, and frequency, required to support the deployment planning and execution process.

2.3.1. Published deployment guidance will be referred to as the Installation Deployment Plan (IDP). IDP reviews should be conducted periodically to assess metrics and quality initiatives. Send new and corrected IDP copies to your supporting NAF/LGX and HQ AFSPC/LGX. The IDP can be issued as a supplement, installation plan, Operating Instruction, or as a chapter of your Base Support Plan, whichever best fits the installation's needs. However, the following information will be included in the IDP:

2.3.1.1(Added). Responsibilities. Include unit provided inputs that detail responsibilities down to the position and workcenter level. Be as specific as necessary to ensure units meet deployment requirements.

2.3.1.2(Added). The Deployment Process. Summarize how you intend to deploy units from your installation. Include a process flow chart.

2.3.1.3(Added). Deployment Procedures. Elaborate on the specific operations of the deployment process. Operating procedures and checklists from your existing deployment plan or an equivalent method of outlining procedures may be used.

2.3.1.4(Added). Standard UTC Reference File (SURF). Maintain in LOGMOD-B/LOGFOR system. Distribute to NAF/LGX and HQ AFSPC/LGX only upon request. Note: This section is maintained separate from the IDP.

2.3.1.5(Added). Deployment Data File (DDF). Maintain in LOGMOD-B/LOGPLAN system and in hard copy. The hard copy DDF will be divided into sections, with each section supporting a specific OPlan commitment identified by pseudo Plan Identification Designator (PID). This section is also maintained separately from the IDP. The DDF will consist of the following:

2.3.1.5.1. Section A - LOGPLAN ID/UTC Summary. Distribute this section of the DDF to NAF/LGX and HQ AFSPC/LGXP in hard copy with IDP.

2.3.1.5.2. Section B - LOGPLAN Wing Execution Manpower/Materiel Summary. Personnel and cargo increments may be prioritized in order of tasking and need.

2.3.1.5.3. Section C - LOGPLAN wing materiel list.

2.3.1.5.4. Section D - Deployment schedule of events.

2.3.1.5.5. Section E - Load Plans. If projected to deploy by air, use C-141 airframe as your template for load plans.

2.3.1.6(Added). Glossary of Terms.

2.3.4.1. Units will conduct deployment exercises at least semiannually (annually for AFSPC-gained ANG units). The host commander may increase exercise frequency to meet unit readiness requirements. Send one copy of the exercise evaluation report to the NAF/LGX and HQ AFSPC/LGX with the option of sending copies to other AFSPC units for crossfeed. For Air Force Reserve tenant units on AFSPC bases the AFRES unit XP is responsible to ensure the base deployment process and unit tasking information is provided to AFRES unit commanders on a regular basis. AFRES XP's should work with their host base IDO to provide this briefing to the AFRES wing commander and key staff or determine another means to ensure the information is provided.

2.4.1. The IDO will brief the wing commander, senior staff, and tasked unit commanders at least annually on the deployment process, to include a detailed review of unit taskings.

2.5.1. The UTC deployment requirement (tasking) may come from an OPlan or a UTC Functional Area Manager's Tasking Letter.

2.5.2. Primary and alternate, if available, positions identified for deployment will receive the same minimum required training. Note: Personal equipment (e.g. mobility bags, small arms, etc.), if required, will only be purchased for primary deployment positions with standard tariff variances.

2.5.6.1. A unit training program will be developed to ensure personnel are prepared to meet command and control, cargo, and personnel preparation requirements. The IDO, in concert with affected base agencies, will define and develop this program. The training program will include a quarterly training meeting with tasked unit UDMs to discuss training requirements, problem areas, and develop and validate a published training schedule. This schedule will include necessary training for all deployment workcenters; i.e., Deployment Control Center (DCC), Cargo Deployment Function (CDF), and the Personnel Deployment Function (PDF) and subworkcenters supporting deployment. Training OPRs are responsible for record keeping, augmentee management, and providing training statistics to the IDO. Minimum training requirements are in Figure 2-1.

Figure2-1(Added). AFSPC Deployment Training Requirements

2.6.1.2. Unit deployment taskings can be verified through the use of Mobility Requirements/
Resources Roster (MRRRs) (or any locally authorized automated product) produced by the Personnel Readiness Unit/Personnel Systems and Readiness Element (PRU/PSRE). The UDM, or commander if no UDM is designated, will ensure the MRRR is returned to the PRU/PSRE annotated with the social security numbers of the individuals identified to deploy against unit requirements. The PRU/PSRE will input these updates into the MANPER-B system.

3.3.2. Submit shortfalls and limiting factors (LIMFACs) to the responsible NAF and HQ AFSPC UTC functional manager. Also, info NAF/LGX and HQ AFSPC/LGX. ANG units will refer to AFR 45-1 for reporting procedures prior to unit activation.

3.5.2. Same information must be maintained for surface movements.

5.1.1. AFSCs that are substituted in UTCs must be coordinated with the HQ AFSPC UTC functional manager. Info the appropriate NAF/LGX and HQ AFSPC/LGX. Units need to utilize the Control AFSC when assigning personnel to fill deployment/UTC requirements.

5.2.2. Use of personnel readiness folders is required. Recommended composition of the folder is as follows: an appointment letter identifying deployment requirement, identification tags and chain, PHS Form 731--Immunization Record, Courier letters, if applicable, a blank Power of Attorney fact sheet, and Passport, if applicable.
