  1. What are the steps to IPB
    • Define the Operational Environment
    • Describe Environmental Effects on Operations
    • Evaluate the Threat
    • Determine Threat Courses of Action
  2. What is CCIR?
    An Information requirement identified by the commander as being critical to facilitating timely decision making.
  3. What are the 2 elements of a CCIR?
    PIR and FFIR
  4. What is a PIR?
    Intelligence requirement, stated by the commander as a priority for intelligence support, which the commander needs to support decision making and to understand the area of interest or the threat.
  5. What is a FFIR
    Information the commander and staff need about the forces available for the operation. (Incl; personnel, maintenance, supply, ammo, POL, and leadership capabilities)
  6. What are the Operational Variables?
    PMESII-PT
  7. What are the Mission Variables?
    METT-TC
  8. What does ASCOPE mean?
    • Area
    • Structures
    • Capabilities
    • Organizations
    • People
    • Events
  9. What does OAKOC?
    • Observation and Fields of Fire
    • Avenues of Approach
    • Key Terrain
    • Obsticles
    • Cover and Concealment
  10. What are the 5 Sub steps of Defining the OE?
    • ID significant characteristics of the environ't
    • ID the limits of the CDR's AO
    • Establish the limits of the AI and AOI
    • Evaluate the existing databases and ID intel gaps
    • Initiate collection of info requirements for IPB
  11. Conclusions about the effects of the terrain are reached through two sub-steps.
    • OAKOC and WATCH-VP
    • Evaluate the terrains effect on military operations
  12. What are the substeps to Evaluate the Threat?
    • Convert threat doctrine or patterns to graphics
    • Describe the threat's tactics and options
    • ID HVTs and HPTs
  13. What are the substeps to "Determinging threat COA"?
    • ID the threats likely objectives and endstate
    • ID the full set of COAs avail to threat
    • Evaluate and prioritize COAs
    • Develop each COA (detail and time allowing)
    • ID initial intel requirements
  14. Depicts possible threat/adversary COA as part of a particular threat/adversary operation, based on threats current situation.
    SITEMP
  15. Depicts the NAI's where activity or lack therof will indicate which threat COA the threat has adopted, the combination of the NAI, indicators, and Time phased lines (TPL) associated with each threat COA forms the basis of what?
    EVENTEMP
  16. Dicates the enemy approach to a particular tactical situation, without terrain and weather contraints
    THREATEMP
  17. Explain the difference between Operational and Mission variables.
    OV's facillitate the understanding of the OE and are directly related to campaign planning; MV are those aspects of the OR that directly effect a mission
  18. What is a MCOO
    Modified Combined Operations Overlay; A joint intelligence preparation of the battlespace product used to potray the effects of each battle space dimention on military operations.
  19. What are the aspects of CoG
    • Center of Gravity
    • Critical Capabilities
    • Critical Requirements
    • Critical Vulnerabilities
  20. Primary source of moral or physical strength, power and resistance
    Center of Gravity
  21. Means that are considered crucial enablers for the adveraries CoG to function and essential to the acoomplishment of the adversaries assumed objectives.
    Critical Capabilities
  22. Essential condition, resources and means for a critical capabilitiy to be fully operative.
    Critical Requirements
  23. Aspect or components of the adversary's critical requirments which are deficient or vulnerable to direct or inderect attack that will create decisive or significant effects
    Critical Vulnerabilities
  24. An activity or element within a system
    Node
  25. Items whose criticality is sufficiently greater than the others and whose disruption or destruction significantly degrades the ability of the system to perfrom its intended function.
    Key node
  26. What model is useful when conducting SoS assessments? (It helps reflect the range and diversity of potential adversaries and how they may influence the operational environment to achieve their objectives.
    PEMESII-PT
  27. A functionally, physically, and/or behaviorally related group of regularly interacting or interdependent elements; that group of elements forming a unified whole.
    System
  28. What do the circles and lines represent in a nodel diagram?
    Nodes and links
  29. What is a SIR?
    Information required to answer part the PIR, location where it can be collected, time when it can be collected, tied to an asset.
  30. What drives SIRs?
    Indicators
  31. Information the commander and staff need about the forces available for the operation. (Incl; personnel, maintenance, supply, ammo, POL, and leadership capabilities)
    FFIR
  32. Intelligence requirement, stated by the commander as a priority for intelligence support, which the commander needs to support decision making and to understand the area of interest or the threat.
    PIR
  33. What does CARVER assist us with?
    Identifying and prioritizing (value and rank) specific targets so that attack resources can be employed efficiently.
  34. What is the analytical tool to be utilized within the "Decide" phase of D3A and the MA phase of MDMP?
