Abstract:

The principal concern is the establishment of an effective crisis management system for use during contingency situations. The increasing high-level informational demands during crises, the need for intensive pre-crisis planning, the requirement for maximum coordination between involved commands and agencies, and the need for rapid deployment of forces when necessary combine to emphasize the importance of crisis procedures to military planners and national decision-makers. Existing crisis management studies and available JCS documents and procedures were reviewed. Personal knowledge accumulated while working closely with key JCS, Service, and unified command personnel during the development of an automated support system for joint planning was the primary source of information. The basic framework for an effective crisis management system is available. Present systems must be honed to provide a sharp crisis response capability. Active involvement during contingency situations must be limited to organizations vital to mission accomplishment. Available automated support capability must not be dissipated on numerous, unpromising options. Author
