Targeting is an important process that assists commanders in allocating scarce resources and synchronizing fires to assist the commander in accomplishing his mission. Targeting has received much attention since Operation Desert Storm the result is an effort to develop Joint Tactics Techniques and Procedures JTTPs for targeting. However, the focus of efforts to develop joint procedures for targeting has been on targeting and attack of Time Sensitive Targets TSTs. The result is that current JTTPs for targeting are adequate for synchronizing targeting and attacks against time sensitive targets but, are inadequate in helping component commanders synchronize targeting throughout the Joint Operational Area JOA and particularly inside a surface component commanders AO where targeting responsibilities may overlap.
