Jordanian Armed Forces Munitions Management Assessment: Improving Safety, Security, and Operational Readiness across the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

Wade Evans,
Driven by a national mandate to improve military readiness and to increase its ability to quickly defend the borders of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Institute for Security Governance (ISG) and the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) Military Ammunition Command recently completed a ten-month Munitions Management Assessment (hereinafter Munitions Assessment) and developed a Munitions Infrastructure Master Plan (IMP) to improve the safety, security, and operational effectiveness of the country’s munitions management processes. This action was in response to a 2021 JAF request for ISG’s evaluation of the JAF’s current munitions material management practices. ISG developed a JAF Munitions Assessment Technical Approach, leveraging the same Lines of Effort associated with the ongoing ISG program to support Logistics Modernization across the JAF, and worked through BG Ali Al Kuson, Director, Capability Development Department (CDD) and Colonel Helalat Ismail, Chief, Combat Capability Development Branch to validate that the approach met the Director of Planning and Organization’s (DPO) guidance.
