Organizing Nonlethal Attack Assets in Operational and Strategic Organizations.
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
Nonlethal attack assets, specifically public affairs, psychological operations and civil affairs, are often the first deep strike option of the operational and strategic commander. Organizing, integrating and synchronizing these assets into the staff structure and campaign plan is often poorly executed due to a lack of doctrine and joint tactics, techniques and procedures JTTP. The result can be a nonlethal strike that is not linked to the overall plan and therefore late, ineffective or, at worst, contradictory to the operational or strategic aims. This project examines and then proposes a staff structure and methodology for integrating and synchronizing nonlethal assets. It provides a start point for development of detailed JTTP that will ensure timely, synergistic nonlethal attack. The implementation cost is minimal. The staff structure will be manned by existing personnel and the methodology is derived from doctrine but adapted to the unique nature of nonlethal attack.
