DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This report was prepared by the Defense Science BoardDSB Task Force on Military Operations in Built up Areas MOBA. The purpose of the Task Force was to determine the current capabilities of the Department of Defense to conduct military operations in built up areas and to assess the future needs of the Department to perform this function. The report focuses upon modernization initiatives that would produce high leverage in terms of U.S. military forces to conduct military operations in these areas. MOBA generally involves the use of the military in Operations Other Than War OOTW. This may include peacekeeping, pacification or peacemaking operations including civil affairs and psychological operations. OOTW may involve periods of intense conflict in a localized area, but overall it involves low intensity conflict rather than general warfare. MOBA involves operations in heavily populated areas such as cities and thus necessitates close coordination, highly skilled personnel and integrated command, control, and communications systems. RWJ
