Coalition Sanctions Enforcement
Scenario 6 - Coalition Sanctions Enforcement Operation
The objective is to provide a scenario where a coalition of nations,
under the direction of a lead nation, is engaged in a potentially
long-term sanctions enforcement operation.
Corruption by a government leads to UN sanctions being applied
to that country. Coalition forces deploy to enforce UN resolutions,
with sanction busters using both sea and land routes to move contraband
goods into and out of the country. The military forces deployed
by the coalition will include strong intelligence gathering capabilities,
monitoring forces in border areas and air-mobile forces able to
deploy rapidly to remote areas where illegal activities are detected.
Aspects of Coalition Geospatial Support
The lead nation that commands the deployment of military forces
will provide the central command for geospatial support operations.
Given the nature of the military operation, nations are brought
together from an existing coalition that has predetermined procedures
for geospatial support. A moderate amount of time is available to
prepare and plan for the operations. Given the long period (potentially
one or more years) when support must be provided, coalition procedures
have a chance to become well-refined. The operational tempo for
geospatial support is low but with sporadic high activities when
sanction busting activities are detected. For rapid response, in-theatre
capabilities are critical.
