Mainichi wrote that the GOJ has decided that the GSDF will be primarily responsible for duties that it currently shares with the ASDF and the MSDF, such as engineering, telecommunications, and patrol of bases so that ASDF and MSDF personnel, who will be spared from such assignments, can undertake different missions. According to the article, the MSDF will probably need more members to staff Aegis destroyers for missile defense, as the Defense Ministry plans to procure additional vessels following its decision to abandon the Aegis Ashore deployment initiative.
