Abstract:

Multi National Force MNF operations recognize the existence of shared national interests in a specific geographic region. Furthermore, MNF operations seek to standardize some basic concepts and processes that will promote habits of cooperation, increased dialogue, and provide for baseline CoalitionCombined Task Force CCTF operational concepts. This thesis and its recommendation for a Standard Operating Procedure SOP are aimed at improving interoperability and CCTF operational readiness. The SOP will focus on the spectrum of Information Operations 10 with regards to Military Operations Other Than War MOOTW and Small Scale Contingencies SSC during MNF operations. First, existing doctrine and cases will be analyzed to develop a foundation for this study. This thesis will seek to identify the existing 10 procedures to be utilized during MNF operations. Next, exercise observations and lessons learned reviews serve as the basis for 10 SOP Annex development to support the MNF SOP.
