intratheater airlift requirement support to components and CJTFs, monitor and direct CFLCC intratheater surface distribution support to components and CJTFs, adjudicate identified USCENTCOM distribution and intratheater shortfalls, coordinate for additional USTRANSCOM support, provide total asset visibility (TAV) and in-transit visibility (ITV) for intertheater and intratheater forces and material, and set the conditions for effective theater retrograde.
