The RSOI process matches up pre-positioned Table of Organizational Equipment with units arriving in Qatar. Once in country, the RSOI process equips and arms battalion to brigade-sized Task Force elements or greater within a short period of time.  Reception starts when soldiers or equipment land at one of Qatar's ports of debarkation. Equipment, bags and supplies are palletized and prepared for convoy to Camp As-Sayliyah's drawing lot.  At the drawing lot, soldiers draw their equipment. This stage is not finished until all units have completed the draw and uploaded all combat equipment. All equipment receives preventive maintenance checks and services prior to departing.

Onward movement begins with convoy operations to the marshaling area. Supplies and equipment are loaded onto trucks, and tracked vehicles are loaded onto heavy equipment transports. The convoys then move to their positions in the desert to begin training or contingency operations.

The final phase, integration, is the tactical fusion of the arriving units into the Qatar defensive plan. Training - at the individual and unit level - takes place at the multi-service and multi-national level.Bottom of Form
