    • Expresses enduring beliefs
    • Example: JP-1
  3. What are the characteristics of the Operational level of doctrine?
    • More detailed than the Basic level
    • Gives broad guidance on employment of forces

  10. What are the 3 options for Joint Targeting Oversight?
    • Establish a Joint Targeting Coordination Board.
    • Delegate the responsibility to a deputy or subordinate commander.
    • Retain responsibility and conduct with the J3.
  11. Define Joint Intelligence Preparation of the Operational Environment.
    The analytical process used by joint intelligence organizations to produce intelligence assessments, estimates, and other intelligence products in support of the JFC’s decision making process.
  12. How is JIPOE different from IPB?
    • JIPOE and IPB differ in relative purpose, focus and level of detail
    • IPB is a microanalysis of the component command’s OE
    • JIPOE emphasizes a holistic approach by analyzing and integrating a systems perspective and geospatial perspective with the force-specific IPB
  13. What are the steps of JIPOE?
    • Define the Operational Environment (OE)
    • Describe the impact of the OE
    • Evaluate the adversary
    • Determine adversary COAs
  14. What are the steps of the Joint Operations Planning Process?
    • Planning Initiation
    • Mission Analysis
    • Course of Action (COA) Development
    • COA Analysis and Wargaming
    • COA Comparison
    • COA Approval
    • Plan or Order Development
  15. What is the JIPOE manual?
    JP 2-01.3 Joint Intelligence Preparation of the Operational Environment
  16. What is an Area of Influence?
    An area wherein a commander is directly capable of influencing operations by maneuver or fire support systems normally under the commander’s command or control.
  17. What is an Area of Interest?
    • That area of concern to the commander including the area of influence adjacent areas and extending into enemy
    • territory to the objectives of current or planned operations.
  18. In which step do we begin to discuss the 3-dimensional….?
    Step 2 Define the impact of the operational environment
  19. What are the dimensions of the Informational Environment?
    • Physical (C2 systems, SMEs, technology)
    • Informational (links the physical and cognitive dimensions)
    • Cognitive (People think, perceive, visualize, understand, and decide)
  20. Where does the Commander’s guidance come from?
    • Objectives
    • Desired Effects
    • ROE
    • Required Tasks
    • OPLAN
    • EXORD
  21. Do NSL targets require JFC approval if military advantage outweighs ROE?
  22. What are Vetting and Validation?
    • Vetting: Assesses the accuracy of the supporting intelligence to targeting.
    • Validation: (1) Confirms intelligence requirement is important, not a duplicate, and not previously satisfied. (2) Ensures targets meet commander’s guidance and comply with LOAC and ROE.
  23. What are 3 stages of target development?
    • Basic
    • Intermediate
    • Advanced
  24. What is Target Development?
    Target development is an all-source analysis, assessment, and documentation process used to examine potential target systems and identify and characterize entities that, when engaged, support the achievement of the commander’s objectives.
  25. What are the outputs of JIPOE?
    • Combined obstacle overlay
    • Mobility corridors
    • Modified Combined Obstacle Overlay for land, maritime, air, space
    • Combined information overlay
    • Electromagnetic Modified Combined Obstacle Overlay
