Abstract:

Evasion and recovery ER operations are an integral pan of military operations. The combatant commanders are responsible for developing plans and requirements to locate, support, recover, and repatriate isolated personnel. ER operations improve the effectiveness of United States combat forces by preventing the capture and exploitation of US personnel by an enemy. ER operations can be successful in any environment. Detailed plans, operations, and procedures should be developed at subordinate levels. Operational flexibility and multi-system redundancy are the primary factors in successful recovery. The Joint Search and Rescue Center is the organization responsible for integrating, monitoring, and maintaining records of all operations which support and recover isolated personnel. Component commanders establish rescue coordination centers RCCs to coordinate all component combat search and rescue activities, including coordination with other RCCs as appropriate.
