Abstract:

This publication provides joint procedures for employing laser designators with target acquisition systems and laser-guided weapons to enhance the combat effectiveness of joint US forces. Application Procedures established in this publication apply to the commanders of combatant commands, joint task forces, and the subordinate components of these commands. These procedures may also apply when significant forces of one Service are attached to forces of another Service or when significant forces of one Service support forces of another Service under criteria set forth in this publication.. In applying the procedures set forth in this publication, care must be taken to distinguish between distinct but related responsibilities in the two channels of authority to forces assigned to combatant commands. The Military Departments and Services recruit, organize, train, equip, and provide forces for assignment to combatant commands and administer and support these forces. CINCs exercise Combatant Command command authority over these forces. Service component commanders are responsible to both joint force commanders in the operational chain of command and to the Military Departments and Services in the chain of command for matters that the joint force commander has not been assigned authority.
