  13. What prosecutes targets of opportunity and changes to planned targets or objectives?
    Dynamic Targeting
  14. Exist in the OE and are located in sufficient time or prosecuted at a specific, planned time. (What is it?)
    Scheduled Targets.
  15. Have actions planned, but not for a specific delivery time. (what is it?)
    On-Call target.
  16. Are known or not expected to exist in the operational environment.
    Unaticipated Targets
  17. Known to exist in the operational environment, but no action has been planned against them. (what is it?)
    Unplanned Targets.
  18. What is the purpose of the Targeting methodology?
    To integrate and synchronize scalable fires with the maneuver operations.
  19. What are the four functions of the targeting process?
    • D3A
    • Decide, Detect, Deliver and Assess.
  20. What is the most important step in D3A, and why?
    Decide, Provides the overall focus and sets priorities for intelligence collection and attack planning.
  21. When initiating the 'Decide' function, what does the TVA rely heavily on?
    Detailed IPB
  22. What products are started during the Decide function?
    HPTL, TSS, AGM and ISR plan
  23. _______ are criteria applied to enemy activity (acquisitions and battlefield information) and used in deciding whether the activity is a target?
    Target Selection Standards (TSS)
  24. The ____ identifies which targets will be prosecuted, how, when and the desired effect.
    Attack Guidance Matrix. (AGM)
  25. The _______ function occurs during execution of the plan. During this phase the collection manager supervises the execution of the collection plan, focusing on the commander's PIRs.
  26. The _____ function of the targeting process executes the target attack guidance and supports the commander's battle plan once the HPT has been loacted and identified.
  27. Target attack falls into two categories. What are they?
    Tactical and Technical
  28. _______ determine time of attack, the desired effect (degree of damage), weapon system being used, and the potential for collateral damage.
    Tactical decisions
  29. _____ describe the number and type of munitions, the unit to conduct the attack, and the response time of the attacking unit.
    Technical decisions
  30. What are the three types of Combat Assessment?
    • Battle Damage Assessment (BDA)
    • Munitions Effects Assessment (MEA)
    • Re-Attack Recommendations
  31. What are the 3 components of BDA?
    • Physical Damage
    • Functional Damage
    • Target System Assessment
  32. What are the two types of Assessment?
    • Measure of Performance (MOP)
    • Measure of Effectiveness (MOE)
  33. Criteria for measuring task performance or accomplishment.
    Measure of Performance. (MOP-TR) "Are we doing things right?"
  34. Used to assess changes in system behavior, capability, or the operational environment.
    Measure of Effectiveness (MOE-TRT) "Are we doing the right things?"
  35. The detect process determines _____, _____ and ______ ______ for collection systems?
    accurate, identifiable, and timely requirements
  36. _____ is assesses the accuracy of the supporting intelligence to targeting; "do we have what we need to prosecute"
  37. ____ ensures all vetted targets meet the objectives and criteria outlined in the commander's guidance and ensures compliance with the law of war and rules of engagement.
  38. What is the purpose of combat assessments?
    To determine the effectiveness of force employment during military operations
