These initiatives, as well as others yet to be envisioned, will be employed in combination to evolve the capabilities necessary to alleviate the joint force's reliance on shore-based ports and airfields in the objective area.
The M-X needs "agility in the objective area" which means it must be able to accomplish short take-off and landings and/or hover at medium heights.
You have reviewed the PIRs and have a general intelligence estimate on where threat forces are originating, but you do not know their routes, assembly points, or objective areas. A review of the ISR assets available to provide support includes Joint STARS or you identify the requirement for WAS MTI to support your collection operations.
The MPF (F) combines the capacity and endurance of sealift with the speed of airlift to rapidly deploy MAGTFs to objective areas, and it adds the capability to provide indefinite sea-based sustainment.
Thermals can then be used to continue to assess any movement on the objective before ever dismounting and using the vehicles for cover to the objective area. Though an assault platoon may be a likely candidate for the routine or permanent PSD for battalion or higher-level leaders given its size on paper, this role may not make full use of its capabilities unless it is part of a deliberate tactical command post.
Air forces play a critical role in airborne operations by securing control of the air and then transporting airborne troops to the objective area, providing escort during transit, and furnishing close air support once the troops have landed.
The engineer commander must task-organize his force based on the target, the objective area, and the capabilities of his units.

Even when the objective area turned out to be a "dry hole," these air assaults had an important Information Operation (IO) effect by demonstrating the battalion's capability and resolve to strike at the time and place of its choosing.
The EMF deployed to the objective area by rotary-wing assault, GAC, heavy-equipment airdrop, and airland operation.
