mission analysis

UNSOC

Mission Analysis

The aim of the mission analysis is to identify the boundaries of the problem.

This includes:

  • interpretation and definition of the given order
  • conditions that may affect the mission
  • review of own and opposing forces to determine strengths

and weaknesses.

slide13

This can also be done

in a staff meeting -

COS Mission Analysis -

and is normally done

by the COS - in co-op

with branch Heads.

MISSION ANALYSIS STEPS

UNSOC

Step 1. Analyse the higher commander’s order.

Step 2. Conduct Initial Intelligence Preparation (Situation overview).

Step 3. Analyse Higher Commander’s Intent, Mission, Objectives and Desired End State.

Step 4. Identify Planning Limitations.

Step 5. Identify Assumptions.

Step 6. Identify critical Facts

Step 7. Strengths and Weaknesses (both opposing and own forces).

Step 8. Centres of Gravity (COG)/Decisive Points

Step 9. Identify/determine Tasks (assigned, implied and essential)

Step 10. Determine Own Objectives, Desired End State and Criteria for Success

Step 11. Write the restated mission (WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND WHY).

Step 12. Conduct a mission analysis briefing

Step 13. Approve the restated mission.

Step 14. Develop the commander's initial intent.

Step 15. Issue the commander's guidance.

Step 16. Issue a warning order.

Step 17. Review facts and assumptions.

MISSION ANALYSIS:

For a complex mission

it might be a longer procedure -

For a simple mission

we might be doing this

in minutes!

MISSION ANALYSIS

Higher Commander´s Plan

  • Commander´s Intent: Two Levels Up
  • Mission:
    • Tasks: Specified, Implied, Essential
    • Constraints & Restraints
    • Risk
    • Available Forces
    • Area Of Operations / Interest
  • Concept Of Operation
  • Timeline

INITIAL INFORMATION PREPARATION OF THE AOR

  • Systematic and Continuous Process
  • Defines the Area of Responsibility (AOR) & Initial Collection
  • Efforts
  • Analysis & Estimates Threat & Effects of the AOR
  • Assists the Staff to focus the Planning;
  • -Development of COAs, collection of info, etc.
  • Produces specific Products;
    • -Situation Template

STEP 2

planning limitations
Planning Limitations

Exist as restraints, constraints and

pre-conditions for success.

  • Restraints limit what may be done - must not do!
  • Constraints impose obligations that must be met.
  • Pre-conditions stated by CO as essential for mission success.

Assumptions

Assumptions state essential conditions which must exist if a specific plan is to succeed -- take the place of facts -- must

be valid and necessary -- regularly validate assumptions.

STEP 5

Examples from SFOR / KFOR:

Population generally support the implementation

of the Peace Agreement and the presence of

Peace Troops in AOR.

facts and assumptions

UNSOC

Facts and Assumptions

STEP 6

Three-step thinking:

1. Facts or Assumptions (Critical?)

2. Consequences

3. Conclusions

“What does it mean to me??”

“What do I need to do??”

strengths and weakness

UNSOC

Strengths and Weakness

STEP 7

  • Identify both opposing and own forces

2. Conclusions

“What does it mean to me??”

centre of gravity cog
Centre of Gravity (COG)
  • “the Point against which all energies should be directed”.

STEP 8

  • Exist at strategic, operational and tactical levels.
  • “the Hub of all power and movement on which everything depends”.
centre of gravity cog continued
Centre of Gravity(COG) (Continued)
  • The COG is that characteristic, capability, locality, from which a military force derives its freedom ofaction, physical strength or will to fight.
  • If attacked, destroyed, neutralised or eliminated, will lead to inevitable defeat or wish for peace.

STEP 8

Centre of Gravity (COG)(Continued)

“Exploit FWF COG,

STEP 8

decisive points dps
Decisive Points (DPs)
  • DPs are keys to getting at the COGs.
  • May exist in time, space or in the information environment.
  • Geographical in nature, but can be linked to attainment of

specific capabilities or to elements of combat functions

STEP 8

decisive points dps continued
Decisive Points (DPs)(Continued)
  • Control of DPs provides CO with possibility to greatly

influence the outcome of an action.

  • Proper action at DPs allows the CO to gain initiative,

retain freedom of operational manoeuvre and maintain

momentum.

STEP 8

Decisive Points DPs(Examples)
  • Prepare a Contingency Plan for Ops within Enclave.
  • Negotiations with Parties.
  • Liaison with UN Agencies in AOR.
  • Arms embargo operations.
  • Maintain Freedom of movement (FOM).
  • Support of International Organisations/ NGO´s.
  • Information Operations.
  • Maintain the security in the whole AOR and in the ZOS.
  • Co-ordinate C2, Comms, liaison, and operational requirements..

STEP 8

tasks s pecified implied essential
TASKSSpecified/Implied/Essential
  • Essential tasks could consist of both specified and implied tasks, are necessary for mission accomplishment.

STEP 9

  • Specified tasks are stated in higher CO´s order.
  • Implied tasks are those not mentioned in the order, but are identified

when analysing the order.

desired end state
Desired End State
  • A descriptive statement of the political and military

conditions that indicate mission completion.

  • Likely to be general in nature, not to limit the CO´s

method of achieving the mission.

STEP 10

  • Because the End State is general or broad, it may be hard to

Concept Development

The final product of this planning phase is a CONOPS based on a single Own COA, chosen by the Commander. Four steps are carried out during this phase:

  • Staff Analysis
  • Development of COAs (opposing forces and own)
  • Decision Briefing
  • CONOPS Development
staff analysis
Staff Analysis

To examine factors and deductions and to identify assumptions relevant to the mission in order to:

Ascertain whether the mission is achievable.

Develop COA that are viable and supportable.

Factors to examine are:

Own Forces Situation & Capabilities

Terrain & Weather

Command & Control

Identify the players. (civil population, police, military, rebels)

Mark their location on the map.

What can they do?

Develop COAs by brainstorming.

Decide what COA is the Most Likely and the Most Dangerous.

Describe also what objectives they have in each COA.

FORMER WARRING FACTIONS

Considerations:

Commander Objectives?

Force Structure/Order of Battle?

Intelligence Capabilities?

Most Likely/Dangerous COA?

Critical Vulnerabilities?

Constraints and Restrictions?

Recent Tactical Performance?

Sustainment Capability?

  • Situational Template
  • Plot Unit Locations
  • Display Likely Actions Used
  • For Subsequent Planning
  • Example :
  • Not only Military units are players. Police, Paramilitary units, Criminal Gangs and Civilians are players as well and must be assessed too.
slide46

UNSOC

TERRAIN

Considerations :

Area of Operation/Area of Interest?

Key Terrain -- Decisive Terrain?

Areas of Critical Movement Constriction?

Movement Rate Estimates?

Terrain Protection from Enemy Recce?

Logistics Infrastructure?

Area Where FWF Are Most Vulnerable?

  • Key Terrain
  • Obstacles
  • Avenues of Approach
  • Concealment and Cover
  • Observation & Fields of Fire
  • Terrain:
    • Slope/Line Of Sight
    • Elevation
    • Vegetation
    • Soil and Water
  • Mobility
  • Example :
  • Main Supply Routes and roads in general are very important to
  • maintain Freedom of movement, mainly due to mine threat.

Own Course of Action

An Own COA is a possible option open to the commander that would accomplish the mission.

Every attempt should be made to develop as many COAs as possible (Brainstorming).

It is initially stated in broad terms.

(When, Who, What, Where, Why and How)

UNSOC

own course of action cont
Own Course of Action (Cont.)

All Own COAs should be tested for its viability.

Suitable (will the COA result in mission accomplishment?)

Feasible (achievable within allocated resources?)

Acceptable (accepted doctrine, risk etc)

Exclusivity (different comparative advantages and disadvantages?)

Completeness (Does the COA answer the when, where, who, what, why and how questions?)
