Abstract : Target coordinate mensuration technology has improved the accuracy of the target location requirement of the five requirements for accurate predicted fire. The use of mensuration technology to improve the firing unit location requirement provides a degree of accuracy that can potentially refine firing unit occupation procedures. Restructuring of the field artillery military occupational specialties and associated equipment leaves a capability gap in firing unit location procedures that can be resolved by mensuration technology. Certification of Target Mensuration Only operators can be achieved at officer and non-commissioned officer professional development at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The benefit of mass certification of field artillery leadership warrants the cost of training.
