Regardless of the mission, Force Protection, Mobility, and Survivability are keys to successful mission execution.
Experiences at the Combat Training Centers (CTCs) continue to show that units have difficulty integrating available assets into their combat operations to support all the elements of the Mobility/Survivability Battlefield Operating System.
NTC Sidewinders' Tactics, Techniques and Procedures for Engineer Operations is published by CALL for the Observer/Controllers (O/Cs) at the NTC who routinely coach and mentor units on how to employ the techniques and procedures in this newsletter. While this newsletter is NTC-based, the techniques and procedures are relevant for operations and missions conducted anywhere the Army deploys.
The tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) in this CALL newsletter should not be construed as doctrine; they simply reflect the smart ways of doing business as part of a Combined Arms Team. This newsletter assists not just engineers or chemical officers, but also maneuver commanders and logisticians at brigade and battalion/task force level.
