Abstract:

A Smaller-scale Contingency SSC is defined as an operation involving a coalition force initially deployed for up to six months and of no more than 100,000 personnel. The operation may continue at significantly reduced force levels for a longer duration. The emphasis is on the military contributions to operations whose primary objectives are diplomatic, humanitarian or other non-military outcomes. The military task will generally be to create and maintain a set of conditions within which a non-military goal can be achieved.
