Field Manuals: AIR DEFENSE ARTILLERY BRIGADE OPERATIONS FM 3-01.7

THE ARMY MISSION
1-1. The mission of the United States Army is to protect and defend the
Constitution of the United States of America. The Army does this by
deterring war and, when deterrence fails, by achieving quick, decisive victory
- on and off the battlefield – anywhere in the world and under virtually any
conditions as part of a joint team. It does this by fulfilling its directed
function of organizing, equipping, and training ready forces. The US national
military strategy relies on an ability to rapidly deploy, employ, and sustain a
joint force anywhere on the globe. This means that the conditions of Army
operations can range from peace operations to high intensity conflict. These
operations can occur in nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC)
environments, in all types of terrain, weather, and climate.

THE ADA BRIGADE ROLE IN ARMY OPERATIONS
1-2. The air defense artillery brigade is essential to the Army’s theater and
corps air and missile defense mission. It provides a focal point for the ADA
defense design and promotes air and missile defense unity of effort within the
theater. The ADA brigade focuses on protection of joint forces and theater
assets. The ADA brigade provides force protection to maneuver units and
other critical assets according to mission defense priorities. Air defense
weapon systems of the ADA brigade provide responsive, day and night, all
weather, all-altitude protection from aerial threats.

Field Manuals: Human Resources Manual FM 1-0

Field Manuals: Human Resources Manual FM 1-0

PURPOSE
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.

Counterproliferation Operations

The US military response to the threat, and actual use of NBC weapons is
counterproliferation. Counterproliferation is a multitiered, integrated approach intended to
deter NBC use and enable US forces to survive, fight, and win in an NBC environment.
Counterproliferation is built on four core capabilities: counterforce, active defense, passive
defense, and consequence management;

it is also enhanced by military support to
nonproliferation efforts. It includes the activities of the Department of Defense (DOD)
across the full range of US government (USG) efforts to combat proliferation (see Figure I-
1). Commanders at all levels are responsible for the integration and synchronization of
these four core capabilities into their overall operations in support of national
nonproliferation and counterproliferation objectives.

a. Counterproliferation exists across a sequence of mutually supporting operations
that form a continuum of interrelated activities that employ both offensive and defensive
measures. The success of efforts in one area impacts other functions throughout the
operational cycle. The focus of this publication is passive defense.

An awareness of how
passive defense fits within the counterproliferation operations concept is important because
passive defense operations can be impacted by the other three core capabilities.

Maintaining Preparedness

Maintaining military preparedness for potential operations in NBC environments
presents significant challenges and places extraordinary demands on commanders at all
echelons for a clear understanding of potential threats and the requirements for unity of
effort among US forces (service, interagency, joint, multiservice, and multinational) in the
US and abroad.

Threat assessment includes overseas areas of potential conflict as well as
US territory, with particular attention to the civilian infrastructure, military forces, types
of hazards that may be encountered (i.e., low-level exposure hazards), and facilities needed
to support the range of military operations.

Preparedness includes visibly and successfully
exercising service, joint, multinational, and interagency plans that demonstrate the
capability to operate in NBC environments because the use of NBC weapons could impact
strategic, operational, or tactical operations.

a. Background. Maintaining preparedness may include combat operations and
MOOTW such as peace operations, foreign humanitarian assistance, and other military
support to civil authorities (MSCA). This environment presents numerous opportunities for
US military operations to encounter antagonists possessing NBC weapons or toxic
materials.

b. Low-Level Exposure. In addition to the employment of NBC weapons by a threat,
maintaining preparedness includes being alert to other dangerous hazards that can persist
in the AO. Prevalent among those hazards are low-level radiation (LLR), depleted uranium
(DU), TIM, and biological agents (covertly or accidentally dispersed).

An LLR threat can
exist in certain expended munitions, damaged or destroyed equipment, or contaminated
shrapnel—as well as inadequate nuclear waste disposal, deterioration of nuclear power
facilities, or damage to facilities that routinely use radioactive material. LLR produces longterm
radiation exposure health consequences for personnel. DU found in munitions does
not present significant hazards as long as the round is intact.

However, care must be taken around vehicles that have been hit by DU rounds or fires where DU munitions are involved because inhalation and ingestion of DU dust and residue present a health hazard. TIM are often present in enormous quantities in the AO and can be released from industrial plants, transport containers, or storage facilities through battle damage or used as a desperation
measure during military operations.

The multiservice CBRN and other FM and MCWP of the army and NBC technique are contained, for
download and SS in FM 4, FM 7, FM 100 and c-1 protection doctrines.
