Abstract:

On today s resource-constrained, high-turnover, asymmetric battlefield, assessing the threats and developing appropriate courses of action can present leaders with complex choices requiring analysis of second- and thirdorder effects. In a legacy battlefield like that in Afghanistan, threat analysis can become complicated due to the presence of explosive hazard remnants from decades of conflict. To synchronize the combat power and resources dedicated to reducing those hazards, a common operating picture is needed. The explosive hazards coordination cell EHCC helps develop the common operating picture and provides informational or situational understanding on explosive hazards to coalition forces to minimize coalition and civilian casualties.
