Field Manuals: Human Resources Manual FM 1-0

FM 1-0 promotes a common understanding of human resource support fundamentals. This manual does not dictate procedures for any particular operational scenario.

It provides the doctrinal base for developing operational plans (OPLANs) and standard operating procedures (SOPs).

Leaders and human resource operators at all levels must apply these fundamentals using the military decision-making process (MDMP), troop leading procedures (TLP), and METT-TC. This publication is authoritative; but requires judgment in application.

Survival-SHTF-Guide: Human Resources Manual FM 1-0

Human Resources (HR) doctrine must be complete enough for HR professionals to determine tasks and competencies that must be accomplished, yet not so prescriptive that it prohibits the freedom to adapt to operational circumstances.

Much like the tactical commander, HR professionals must be versatile and flexible enough to sustain uninterrupted HR support in today’s contemporary operating environment.

Knowledge of doctrine, combined with expertise and experience, provides a strong foundation for superior planning and execution and establishes a consistent understanding of required HR proficiencies.

Chapter 1: Air Traffic Services Operations
Organization and Missions

Over the last century, warfare became increasingly complex. Army organizations changed from large division sized organizations to today’s brigade-based combined arms teams. To meet this challenge ATS organizations have undergone a transformation to better enable aviation to meet the requirements of the changing battlefront. ATS organizations are now designed to efficiently support Army aviation and joint, inter-agency, interdepartmental, and multinational (JIIM) forces. ATS organizations enable safe and efficient use of positive and procedural control measures with a designated airfield management structure managing high-density and congested airfields at theater level. The organizational tenets for this design are doctrinally balanced, logistically supportable, modernized, multifunctional, and modular.

1-11. An ATS company supports CABs by providing terminal area and en route airspace information and control services. ATS companies provide services to support CABs throughout full spectrum operations. ATS companies are composed of a control tower, ground control approach (GCA), airspace information center (AIC), and two tactical aviation control teams (TACTs). They also deploy as part of the CAB and are an integral part of the brigade’s readiness.
1-12. ATS companies have the following capabilities:

•Deployable within 96 hours of notification, and are equipped and capable of operations in any environment.

•Control tower operations upon 30 minutes of arrival in an area of operation (AO) and become fully operational within 1 hour of arrival.

•Provide self-sustaining operations for 72 hours upon arrival in an AO.

•TACTs in austere/tactical environment operational 15 minutes after arrival in an AO.

•Support aircraft recovery operations including personnel recovery, medical evacuation (MEDEVAC), and assistance to aircraft in distress (battle damage, inclement weather, and disoriented aircraft). Air Traffic Services Operations

Field Manuals: US Army FM 21-31 – Topographic Symbols

23.1. Joint Operations Graphics

a. Purpose and Scope. Joint Operations Graphics are produced in both ground and air versions. The ground version is designated as Series 1501; the air version is designated as Series 1501 AIR. Both versions are designed to provide common base graphics for use in combined operations by the ground and air forces of allied nations. The topographic information is identical on both the ground and air versions.

b. Unit of Vertical Measure. On the ground version, elevation and contour values are shown in meters. These values are converted to foot units on the air version.

c. Aeronautical Information. Both versions contain identical information regarding aerodromes and obstructions to pilotage. The air version contains additional information concerning aids to air navigation.

d. Shaded Relief. Both versions contain an identical representation of shading, to provide a rapid recognition of slope and landforms. The shading also serves as a means of correlating contours and elevations, with emphasis on the more significant terrain features.

e. Elevation Tints. Both versions contain a representative system of color tints which depict areas of the same elevation range. A key box on each version indicates the elevation ranges and their corresponding color tints. j. Symbols. The following approved symbols for Joint Operations Graphics are in addition to, or different from, the standard medium-scale symbols shown in figures 1 through 242

Chapter 1 contains general information on the use of topographic symbols, gives the basic scales for topographic maps, defines topographic maps, and discusses map detail, map accuracy, and map colors. b.

Chapter 2 gives examples and illustrations of topographic symbols arranged by categories, such as d r a i n a g e features, relief features, and roads. c. Chapter 3 gives topographic abbreviations, their scope and application. d.

Chapter 4 discusses marginal information. 3. References Appendix I is a list of publications which give detailed information on maps and mapping, foreign conventional signs and symbols, reference data for the various services, transportation and signal facilities, and abbreviations for administrative and electrically transmitted messages.

4. Symbols and Abbreviations a. Some of the symbols appearing on published maps may not agree entirely with those shown in this manual, since it is necessary to devise or modify symbols to portray conditions or features which are unique to the area being mapped. Consequently, before any map is used, the symbol legend appearing in the margin should be carefully studied.

The contours of a map and topo map from the USGS or other, shape, roads and features, lakes, vegetation, elevation gains, scale, railroad boundaries and other map symbology is all included in this download.
