This unique electronic book on CD-ROM has a complete reproduction of the U.S. Army Field Manual, Intelligence Officer s Handbook, FM 34-8-2, 212 pages. In addition, as a bonus, there are reproductions of over 100 vital U.S. Army Field Manuals covering such topics as combat, arms, operations, training, support, and dozens of special topics! The G2/S2 must provide continuous intelligence and information for the commander to conduct operations and minimize risk. Intelligence is the commander’s decisionmaking tool. The commander, who drives intelligence, does so for planning before deployment, while enroute, and during operations and redeployment. The S2/NCO Provides the commander timely and accurate intelligence, IPB, I&W, and vulnerability assessments for force protection, targeting, and BDA. Makes decisive predictions on when and where an action will take place. Prioritizes IR. Integrates with other staff elements on I&S issues. Provides the commander with a view of all facets of the battlefield. Ensures his staff is trained. It also summarizes information that helps the S2 manage and coordinate the CCIR. It provides the S2 the roles and missions required for executing the intelligence support function. The G2/S2 is the Top Down / Bottom Up integrator of RISTA operations, which have always been performed at the brigade and battalion levels. Three factors help to redefine traditional R&S planning: Top Down reporting. Bottom Up reporting. Digitization. Systems and technologies available to units make an integrated approach to managing top down and bottom up reporting feasible. The ACT serves as the nexus of RISTA operations, digitally linking the brigade S2 with the automated capabilities of the DS MI company, resulting in RISTA operations which blend intelligence, R&S, and TA. Future Army operations will rely more heavily on the force projection of US combat power. There is no single method to support force projection. This chapter identifies key principles and considerations for planning and executing IEW force projection. Successful force projection of IEW support is based on understanding and applying the key principles. Other key force projection components are intelligence readiness and a requirement to define responsibilities each echelon performs down to the lowest tactical level. This chapter discusses Intelligence readiness. Stages of force projection operations (minus operations). Considerations are in a logical order but may not be sequential nor applicable for all force projection missions. Corps and division G2s must provide primary planning support for force projection operations because of their expertise. The S2 at each level identifies Personal knowledge deficiencies (e.g., communications architecture, imagery dissemination systems and methods, ability to identify the staff’s shortcomings).
