This instruction details the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) regions' logistic reporting responsibilities to HQ NORAD during peacetime, wartime, crises, and exercises. Peacetime reporting is effective upon receipt of this instruction. Wartime reporting is effective upon implementation of any portion of OPLAN 3200 or as directed by Commander in Chief North American Aerospace Defense Command (CINCNORAD). The reporting requirement in this directive is exempt from licensing in accordance with paragraph 2.11.1 of AFI 37-124, The Information Collections and Reports Management Program; Controlling Internal, Public, and Interagency Air Force Information Collections. Region commanders may supplement this instruction. This instruction applies to Air National Guard units allocated to NORAD, but it does not apply to the Air Force Reserve units. Coordinate supplements with HQ NORAD, Director for Logistics (J4); 250 S. Peterson Blvd, Ste 116, Peterson AFB CO 80914-3050; before publication.

Changes the requirement for peacetime reporting. Only munitions (Section One, para4.1), will be reported during peacetime. Deletes the section on fighter and support force deployment status.

1. General. CINCNORAD requires accurate and current logistic data to effectively employ assigned forces. The NORAD Logistics Status (LOGSTAT) is designed to keep CINCNORAD informed of each region's current and anticipated logistic capabilities and limiting factors. This enables CINCNORAD to determine logistic impacts on current or planned operational actions and region shortfalls.

2. Responsibilities. Alaskan NORAD Region (ANR), Canadian NORAD Region (CANR), and CONUS NORAD Region (CONR) are the primary reporting agents for this instruction. Subordinate units report required data to the regions according to region-developed reporting procedures. NORAD Region commanders will:

2.1. Establish region logistic reporting procedures, as needed, to meet the requirements of this instruction.

2.2. Report required peacetime information to HQ NORAD/J4 via Automated Digital Network (AUTODIN) in accordance with the formats and timing requirements in paragraph 3.

2.3. Report required wartime information to NORAD Battle Staff Logistics Cell upon implementation of any portion of OPLAN 3200, during NORAD exercises or as directed by CINCNORAD.

2.4. Develop procedures to request logistics assistance directly from appropriate supporting commands and other NORAD Regions. Coordinate the development of these procedures with the affected supporting command(s) or NORAD Region.

3.Reporting Guidelines. Regions report detailed air-to-air munitions status (Section One para 4.1), limiting factors (Section Two para 4.2), and an overall assessment/analysis of sustainability of current and planned operations (Section Three para 4.3). The LOGSTAT serves as a method for requesting logistic assistance from the NORAD Battle Staff Logistics Cell only when all Region and national resources have been exhausted (Section Four para 4.4). In addition, Regions report the status of requests for emergency logistic assistance (Section Four para 4.4).

3.1.Security Classification: When completed the LOGSTAT report is classified "SECRET RELCANUS" as it contains information affecting the defense of the North American Continent and the national defense of the United States and Canada.

3.2.When and How to Report:

3.2.1. Peacetime Reporting: LOGSTAT Reporting is required quarterly with an effective date of the first of the month beginning the new quarter. The report is to be transmitted to HQ NORAD/J4 NLT the 10th of each month. Compile the report using data from subordinate units. Only munitions (Section One, para 4.1) will be reported in peacetime.

3.2.2. Wartime Reporting: Wartime reporting begins upon implementation of any portion of OPLAN 3200 or as directed by CINCNORAD. When reporting is implemented, Regions will compile the required information to complete all four sections of the LOGSTAT from their subordinate units. An initial LOGSTAT report must be submitted to the NORAD Battle Staff Logistics Cell within 2 hours of implementation. After the initial LOGSTAT: "No change" reports are permitted. LOGSTATs are submitted: Daily with an "as of" time of 2200Z. note: Transmit by 0200Z. When CINCNORAD requests. Any time at the discretion of the Region when significant logistic events occur which could impact mission capability.

3.2.3. Regions will send their Peacetime and Wartime LOGSTAT reports via AUTODIN. Peacetime LOGSTAT AUTODIN reports are to be addressed to HQ NORAD/J4. Wartime LOGSTAT reports are to be addressed to: HQ NORAD/Battle Staff Logistics Cell, Cheyenne Mountain AS CO. Information copies are to be sent to appropriate Regions, subordinate units, and supporting commands.

4.LOGSTAT Format and Content. The LOGSTAT consists of four sections. The following information identifies each section and provides guidance for its content.

4.1.Section One - Munitions. This section is a detailed report of Region munitions status. In the case of missiles, report only serviceable, available units. Report each model of missile separately (AIM-7F, AIM-7M, and so forth). The report details munitions available by Region, location (by ICAO code), and nation or service. Reporting categories are specified in Figure 1. The initial report must also contain the baseline munitions requirements for each Region by missile type and location. "No change" reports are authorized. Calculate munitions requirements based on the number of each aircraft type employed and their respective munitions load factor requirements found in Annex D to OPLAN 3200. Note: Requirements may change due to aircraft attrition or gains.

Figure 1 is a sample report.

4.2.Section Two - Limiting Factors (LIMFAC):

4.2.1. A LIMFAC is any factor which degrades the capability of a Region or operating location to perform the assigned mission. LIMFACs are based on major functional areas to
include operations, maintenance, supply, transportation, civil engineering, security, and services.

4.2.2. Each LIMFAC addressed, for a specific location, must be concise, explain the situation which created the LIMFAC, state the impact on operations, and explain what actions have been taken to resolve the situation. The estimated zulu date time group (DTG) when the LIMFAC will be resolved must also be included.

4.2.3. Once a LIMFAC is reported, it need not be reported again unless there is a change in status, for example, the situation deteriorates, improves, or is alleviated and consequently no action is required by HQ NORAD. When it is reported again, Regions must make reference to the initial message that reported the LIMFAC.

4.2.4. Where a LIMFAC is quantified (such as POL, aircraft drop tanks), include the days of supply (DOS) remaining, using factors such as anticipated expenditure and sortie rate. Initial measurements should be calculated based on predicted consumption data. Later, once combat experience is gained, DOS is measured against actual consumption experience. Where no NORAD planning factors exist or actual battle experience factors are not yet available, national planning factors will be used. To assist Regions in the determination of the number of DOS, the following formula is applied:

Quantity of the Reported Item Available = DOS

Aircraft Available x Sortie Rate x Consumption per Sortie

4.3.Section Three - Overall Evaluation. Overall evaluation provides an overview of the logistics status of the Regions' warfighting capability and a subjective assessment/analysis of logistic impact on operations. The evaluation should reflect logistics impacts on operations for at least the next 48 hours.

4.4.Section Four - Assistance Requests. This section is used to request assistance from the NORAD Battle Staff Logistics Cell or report on the status of other requests. Requests for emergency logistics
assistance (outside normal logistics support channels) are sent to the NORAD Battle Staff Logistics Cell only when all Region, intra-Region and national channels have been exhausted.

5. Amendments or suggested changes to this instruction shall be passed directly to HQ NORAD/J4, 250 S. Peterson Blvd, Ste 116, Peterson AFB CO 80914-3050.
