  1. Weaponeering
    Determining the specific weapon required to achieve the mission
  2. JTAC Weaponeering
    JTAC must know location of friendlies that could be affected.
  3. Effective Weaponeering
    Prescribing the right amount of damage to the intended target reducing exposure of warfighters to enemy, minimizing collateral damage.
  4. 3 OPERATIONAL IMPERATIVES
    • MISSION
    • FORCE PRO
    • COLLATERAL DAMAGE
  5. MISSION
    FIRST AND FOREMOST
  6. FORCE PRO
    SECOND ONLY TO MISSION
  7. COLLATERAL DAMAGE
    TERTIARY CONCERN, NOT OPTIONAL
  8. 6 WEAPONS EFFECTS
    • BLAST
    • FRAGMENTATION
    • EJECTA / DEBRIS
    • CRATERING
    • PENETRATION
    • THERMAL EFFECTS
  9. BLAST
    overpressure generated by detonation of high explosive
  10. FRAGMENTATION
    break up of the weapon casing
  11. EJECTA/DEBRIS
    considered as a lethal weapon effect for collateral personnel
  12. CRATERING
    • achieved by using a bomb with delayed fuzing
    • effective against lines of communication
  13. PENETRATION
    • SHAPED CHARGE PENETRATORS
    • KINETIC ENERGY PENETRATORS
  14. KINETIC ENERGY PENETRATORS
    bullet like effect
  15. PENETRATION PROBLEM
    Lack of visible damage to target
  16. THERMAL EFFECTS
    Incendiary weapons produce intense localized heat designed to ignite targets
  17. THERMAL EFFECTS
    Delivery parallel to friendly positions is preferred.
  18. CIRCULAR ERROR PROBABLE
    The radius defining a circle within which 50% of weapons delivered are expected to fail.
  19. CEP is associated with:
    • Weapon Guidance system for PGM's
    • Aircraft platform for GP bombs
    • Delivery System for IDF
  20. JTAC Considerations: (Think Line 5 of 9Line)
    • Desired Effects (GFC's Intent)
    • Number/Type
    • Degree of Pro
    • Moving or Stationary
    • Accuracy
    • Platform
    • Friendlies /Collateral Concerns (Danger Close)
  21. Risk Estimate Distance (RED's)
    COMBAT USE ONLY
  22. TROOPS IN CONTACT (TIC)
    Friendly ground forces receiving effective fire
  23. DANGER CLOSE
    • Ordnance delivery inside 0.1% PI
    • JTAC must Pass GFC's initials to attack A/C
  24. 0.1% PROBABILITY OF INCAPACITATION
    COMBAT USE ONLY!!
  25. MINIMUM SAFE DISTANCE
    JFIRE MSD intended for TRAINING missions at air to surface ranges.
