Preface

 

The purpose of this manual is to define Army pre-positioned land in terms of process, structure, organization, and operations from the strategic through tactical levels. This manual serves as an azimuth to align training, planning, and execution for the Army and its role in power projection doctrine. It will define specific existing organizations, systems, equipment, and procedures necessary to accomplish Army pre-positioned land operations. In the absence of existing systems and procedures, this manual offers solutions. This manual and the other Field Manual (FM) 100-17 series publications (FM 100-17, Mobilization, Deployment, Redeployment, and Demobilization; FM 100-17-1, Army Pre-Positioned Afloat Operations; FM 100-17-3, Reception, Staging, Onward Movement, and Integration; FM 100-17-4, Deployment: Fort to Port; and FM 100-17-5, Redeployment) provide a complete series of doctrine manuals to explain the force projection process that will be the hallmark of Force XXI. (See Figure P-1.)

The chapters establish the doctrinal framework for Army pre-positioned land operations. They focus on concepts, operational phases, and essential elements needed to make Army pre-positioned land operations effective. Information presented in these chapters is general in nature.
