about

The purpose of this research was to investigate the defense industrial base capability to support small arms ammunition production for the current and future operations, as well as an increase in force structure. Improved production and supply chain efficiencies have led to a reduction in government owned, contractor operated facilities from twelve facilities in World War II to only one today. These reductions were driven by a reduction in small arms ammunition requirements due to force reduction and periods of peace. However, today's current operations have dramatically increased these requirements beyond the current government owned, contractor operated production facility's production capability. Additionally, this study describes the contractor's supply chain used in manufacturing small arms ammunition. Historical data from World War II, post-Cold War operations, and Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom were used as part of the research tool to develop the argument and determine the primary question. The research proves current production meets the current requirements with the additional sourcing through alternative sources. Additionally, it provides information that estimates requirements for total war in a conventional environment. Recommendations for future projects of this nature are made.
