41-6-6003: Conduct Civil ReconnaissanceConditions
The Civil Affairs (CA) element deploys to an area of operation (AO) and receives an operation order (OPORD), operation plan (OPLAN), or fragmentary order (FRAGO) to conduct a civil reconnaissance (CR) to gather information using the area, structures, capabilities, organizations, people, and events (ASCOPE) factors. An area study, international treaties, agreements, laws, and regulations pertaining to the area are available. The legal status of United States (U.S.) forces in the AO has been determined. The U.S. Country Team and U.S. Ambassador may or may not be in country. Foreign nation agreements may or may not be available. A civil-military operations center (CMOC) is established and operational in the AO. Communications, administration, logistics, intelligence, and rear area security mechanisms are in place. All organic equipment is available. The CA element is provided guidance on the rules of engagement (ROE). The CA element may also have mission instructions, such as a peace mandate or status-of-forces agreement (SOFA). Civilians, intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), other government agencies (OGAs), nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), indigenous populations and institutions (IPI), and local and international media are in the area. This task can be performed in all environmental conditions.Standards
The CA element conducts the civil reconnaissance (CR) in accordance with (IAW) the tactical standing operating procedures (TSOP), the OPORD/FRAGO, and commander's guidance. The CA element processes collected information IAW the TSOP, and OPORD/FRAGO. The CA element complies with the ROE, mission instructions, higher headquarters orders and directives, and other special orders.
CA Element Conducts Troop-Leading Procedures (TLP) Obtain Information Develop a Civil Recon Plan Conduct a Risk Assessment Write the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) Coordinate with Supported Element Prepare for Interview with Sources Conduct Rehearsals Conduct the Recon Mission Observing the ASCOPE Factors Safety and Environment Risk Assessment is Low
Environmental protection is not just the law but the right thing to do. It is a continual process and starts with deliberate planning. Always be alert to ways to protect our environment during training and missions. In doing so you will contribute to the sustainment of our training resources while protecting people and the environment from harmful effects References FM 6-0 Mission Command: Command and Control of Army Forces
FM 3-05.401 Civil Affairs Tactics, Techniques and Procedures
CA Element Conducts TLP’s Step 1: Receive the Mission
Step 2: Issue a warning order
Step 3: Make a tentative plan
Step 4: Start necessary movement
Step 5: Reconnoiter
Step 6: Complete the Plan
Step 7: Issue the complete order
Step 8: Supervise
Obtain Information Obtain Priority Information Requirements (PIRs)
From S-2/G-2 and operations/intelligence section of CMOC
Obtain Information RequirementsFrom S-2/G-2 and operations/intelligence section of CMOC Develop a Civil Recon Plan Identifies location and source
Identifies status or position of source within the community
Coordinates with other elements in the AO for current information
Conducts a map or digital route reconnaissance Conduct a Risk Assessment Write the CONOPS Paragraph 3 of OPORD
This paragraph describes, in general terms, how the unit will accomplish its task(s) from start to finish. It should identify all mission essential tasks, the decisive points of action, and the main effort
Submit the CONOP to the approving authority Coordinate with Supported Element Requests force protection for the CR mission, if required
Requests interpreter support for the CR mission, if required
Provides reconnaissance plan to supported element as required Prepare for Interview with Sources Prepares questions to satisfy the mission objectives
Rehearses with interpreter
Determines a reliable method for recording information obtained from source
Conduct Rehearsals Articulates the CA element's actions and responsibilities
Ensures all participants rehearse their role
Ensures all participants understand how the roles and actions support overall mission ASCOPE Areas
Events Areas Analyze areas from two perspectives:
How do these areas affect the military missions?
How do military operations impact on civilian activities in these areas?
The answers may dramatically influence major portions of a Course of Action (COA) Structures Existing structures that take on many significant roles
Analysis involves determining location, functions, capabilities, and application in support of military operations
Consider the effects that may result from removing them from civilian use Capabilities Existing capabilities of the populace to sustain itself
Existing capabilities with which the populace needs assistance
Resources and services that can be contracted to support the military mission
CA Soldiers use the 6 CA Functional Specialty Sections to identify existing capabilities of the HN to address various issues
Also identify the capabilities of partner countries and organizations involved in the operation
Organizations Organized groups that may or may not be affiliated with government organizations
Assist the Commander in keeping the populace informed of ongoing and future activities in an AO
Form the nucleus of self-help programs, interim-governing bodies, civil defense efforts, and other activities People Have a positive, negative, or no impact on military operations
Includes all the civilian or non-military personnel one can expect to encounter, and/or influence operations in an AO
May also extend to those outside the AO whose actions, opinions, or political influence can affect the military mission Events Many civilian events may affect the military mission:
Religious Events
Mass Demonstrations
Planting and Harvest Seasons
Evacuations Conduct the Recon Mission Observing the ASCOPE Factors Records observations using digital or non-digital imagery
Records notes about conversations
Consolidates information for submission
The CA element reports essential elements of information in support of mission requirements
