Abstract:

Security and stabilization operations SASO will continue to confront Joint Task Force JTF Commanders with a unique set of challenges and concerns. Future joint forces will require new skill sets to meet the challenges of SASO. The current measures of effectiveness MOEs are not adequate and need to be adjusted. There are potentially many MOEs that could be used to evaluate SASO success. This paper will address three MOEs that JTF Commanders can employ in the future. These MOEs are military in nature and narrow in scope. They are based on a realistic expectation of what the JTF Commander can and should influence in his joint operations area JOA. The MOEs are as follows indigenous force participation in the mission, number of humanitarian operations, and qualityquantity of enemy attacks. This paper attempts to define the current issues and scopes the problem in the first section. Then historical examples are used to present and validate the MOEs.
