The Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) Manual dated 19 January 2012 states that analyses to inform the energy key performance parameter must “include operational energy demand and related energy logistics resupply risk considerations with the focus on mission success and mitigating the size of the logistics force within the Integrated Security Construct”. In response, the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Analysis Center (TRAC) initiated a two-pronged effort to develop an operational energy (OE) analytic capability and demonstrate the capability to produce an OE assessment of a modernized armored brigade combat team (ABCT).
