are as stated in section I of TOEs 19477L000 and 19677L000. The unit capability
for each mission is what the unit can accomplish when performing no other mission
(for example, if it is only doing MSRs, the unit can cover 360 kilometers in
a 24-hour period). Unless otherwise specified, the capabilities are the same
at corps and EAC.
is the amount (MSR or area) or number of supported units/facilities.
support to each division is covered by allocating one MP company per supported
division. Any additional support requirements should be based on a detailed
division PM/MP mission analysis and included under other assigned missions.
specifically tasked, the Army normally relies on HN support to manage refugees.
Redirecting refugees from MSRs and keeping them off of MSRs is part of (as
is straggler control and TCP) the mission and MSR workload When assigned the
mission, the capability is for control of refugees on established refugee control
routes that are in addition to the MSRs.
each square kilometer mission requirement separately. Do not compute the same
terrain in more than one computation (for example, the area around the Air
Force's main operating base is not included with either rural or urban square
capability is not stated in the TOE and is an AS function rather than an MMS
function. Determine the average number of teams per mission and the average
number of simultaneous missions. Multiply the number of teams required per
mission by 0.028, then multiple the result by the number of simultaneous missions
to determine the total requirement. State the number of teams per convoy and
the number of convoys, then convert the force size to a 3-decimal-place company
equivalent. Each additional team, squad, and platoon equivalent equals 0.028,
0.083, and 0.25 respectively.
for modular ammo companies (ASPs) supporting divisions is three platoons and
is normally conducted directly behind the division (corps forward). However,
METT-TC may require the ammo units to move into the DRA. In this case, corps
units should be attached to the division for the duration. Security for corps
storage areas (CSAs) and theater storage areas (TSAs) is one MP company per
two ammo companies. Security is provided on an area-support basis in the form
of screening, with limited fixed posts.
EAC petroleum terminal/pipeline operating company manages the EAC pipeline
that is normally laid adjacent to MSRs. Pipeline security is inherently provided
by MP operating on the MSRs. Unless the pipeline is not near the MSR, MP support
is only allocated against the EAC petroleum terminal/pipeline operating company's
bulk storage facilities. Security is provided on an area-support basis in the
form of screening, with limited fixed posts.
security is normally an EAC mission. This capability equates to simultaneously
providing five MP teams to each of seven trains. Actual workloads and requirements
are computed in the same manner as a convoy escort.
critical facilities are normally defined as key MSR bridges and tunnels and
communication nodes that may require additional security.
major headquarters are corps, COSCOM, TSC, unified command and, if directed,
the JTF. The ASCC depends on the MP to provide security for two CPs. The ASCC
requirement is an additional three platoons to support a second CP.
requirement for one seaport is 1.5 companies.
provide incident response, crime-scene security, and traffic control. They
also assist L&O detachment teams and CID investigators.
deliberate planning in support of an OPLAN, personnel to be confined will normally
be held by either the unit or the EAC I/R MP battalion performing the confinement
mission. This does not preclude a requirement for the echelon PM to operate
a field detention facility until prisoners are released back to their units
or evacuated to the EAC confinement facility.
primary mode is vehicle (back-haul doctrine). Regardless of the mode, a minimum
of one platoon (0.25 requirement) per supported division is allocated for EPW
escort from the division central collection point (DCCP) to the corps holding
area (CHA). Because the actual number of EPWs is unknown, coupled with no time/distance
study for each supported division, one platoon per division provides a minimum
capability for continuous evacuation within the stated doctrinal timeline (evacuate
to the CHA within 12 hours of arrival at the DCCP).
a minimum, one platoon (0.25 requirement) is allocated to operate the CHA (provides
the capability to hold 500 EPWs at any given time).
any additional continuous missions assigned by the echelon commander not covered
above. Examples include VIP escort/security for other than the CG and the deputy
commanding general (DCG) of major headquarters, screening exposed corps flanks,
and increasing teams per mission/function which decreases doctrinal capability
(for example, permanent TCPs or checkpoints). Each additional team, squad,
or platoon equivalent equals 0.028, 0.083, and 0.25 respectively.

by the HN is subtracted from the doctrinal mission requirement. Enter the MP
