Coalition Counter-Terrorist Operation
Scenario 3 - Coalition Counter-Terrorist Operation
The objective is to provide a scenario demonstrating the cooperation
of coalition nations in exchanging intelligence information on a
specific region-of-interest. This intelligence information will
be used by one coalition member to plan and undertake counter-terrorist
operations in the region-of-interest.
A terrorist group is based in a region-of-interest external to
coalition member nations. Analysis from intelligence sources allows
a counter-terrorist (CT) operation to be mounted by one nation,
but with co-operation being given by other states to ensure national
and/or coalition CT forces have the necessary information and support
they need to mount a successful attack. Military capabilities will
include use of precision weapons, air assault formations and special
forces deployed into the region-of-interest.
Aspects of Coalition Geospatial Support
Member nations who are not involved with undertaking the counter-terrorist
operation provide geospatial support from their national sites
and not in-theatre. This support is predominantly in the exchange
and integration of intelligence information. While this operation
is not common for the coalition member nations, it can make use
of many existing off-the-shelf products and services. The operational
tempo is very high while the military operations are being undertaken.
