Subtopic 1: Intelligence Collection for CSS Force Structure

Observation Synopsis

There lacks a common operating picture (COP) for intelligence collection across the spectrum of major subordinate commands (MSC) due to limited access to CSS structure for battle analysis. CSS structure requires access to Force XXI battlefield command brigade and below (FBCB2)/Blue Force Tracker to provide adequate understanding of the current battlefield operations and CSS requirements. There is no central collection agency for intelligence data and overarching analysis of the threat, which can ultimately leave CSS units without adequate intelligance during operations.

Lessons Learned

  • There is no central collection agency for intelligence data overarching analysis of the threat for CSS MSCs.
  • All elements of the CSS force structure requires access to FBCB2/Blue Force Tracker to provide adequate understanding of the current battlefield operations and future CSS requirements.

DOTMLPF Implications

Materiel: Design infrustructure to support access to FBCB2/Blue Force Tracker, providing an understanding of current battlefield operations and future CSS requirements.
