  1. What are two categories of Targeting?

    The process of selecting and prioritizing targets and matching the appropriate response to them, considering operational requirements and capabilities. (JP 3-60)
  3. What are the four Principles of Targeting?
    • Focused- Achieving JFC’s objective
    • Effects-based- Produce specific effects (physical, functional, or psychological)
    • Interdisciplinary- Operations, intelligence, legal, geospatial, etc.
    • Systematic- Achieve effects in a systematic manner

    • Physical
    • Functional
    • Cognitive
    • Environmental

    False
  11. Why is Time Sensitive Targets (TST) so important?
    Because it is the JFC designated target requiring immediate response because it is a highly lucrative, fleeting target of opportunity or it poses a danger to friendly forces
