UMT Information Handbook on Mobilization
In the event of mobilization, you will have to live with your plans; largely you will stay
in place and implement your plans. You are the implementers. If your plans are not good

the Active Army deploys as do the most ready of Reserve and Guard Units. The rest of
the force trains for deployment. You should remember that virtually all of the UMT
assets go with the troops. Your mission at home is to the families of deployed soldiers
but the UMT assets are with the troops.
1. Mobilization Stationing Planning System (MSPS) (Vol II - FORMDEPS).
a. The Mobilization Stationing Planning System (MSPS) is a FORSCOM unique
computer subsystem designed to support mobilization stationing planning within the
Joint Operations Planning System (JOPS). MSPS contains active TOE and TDA units
and the mobilizing Reserve Component TOE and TDA units in FORSCOM and

b. Operational Description.
(1) MSPS is compared against a master file of selected units for updating. The
update consists of recommended additions, deletions and changes to units in

(2) MSPS contains deployment data derived from selected Time Phased Force
Deployment Data (TPFDD) files. Deployment data consists of ports of
embarkation (POE) and debarkation (POD) in addition to arrival and
departure requirement dates.
