Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, the Multiservice Procedures for Joint Theater Missile Target Development - JTMTD Field Manual (FM 90-43) documents tactics, techniques, and procedures for conducting Joint Theater Missile Target Development (JTMTD).
It establishes a common framework for soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines responsible for intelligence preparation of the battlespace (IPB), sensor employment, collection management, current and future operations, target development, and force application. This common framework will enable them to establish a comprehensive and coordinated approach for countering theater missiles (TM) through prelaunch attack operations against the entire target system. This publication's design recognizes that attack operations against TM is not a mission in itself, but a method of characterizing offensive operations regardless of mission area (e.g., counterair, interdiction, fire support, special operations, etc.) and is the responsibility of all forces. This publication is intended to help the joint force commander (JFC) and subordinate component commanders' staffs develop a cohesive approach to JTMTD.
Many of the problems in locating mobile missiles in the past can be traced to difficulties in obtaining timely information and organizing and filtering intelligence operations. This publication establishes a common framework for those individuals responsible for intelligence preparation of the battlespace (IPB), sensor employment, collection management, current and future operations, target development, and force application. This common framework will enable them to establish a comprehensive and coordinated approach for countering TMs through prelaunch attack operations.
As a bonus, this reproduction includes FM-1, The Army Field Manual, a capstone manual containing the vision for the Army - sold separately for $5.99. FM 1 establishes the fundamental principles for employing Landpower. The most important of these are the Army's operational concept and the fundamentals that support it. They form the foundation for all Army doctrine. All Soldiers should understand and internalize them. FM 1 describes the American profession of arms, the Army's place in it, and what it means to be a professional Soldier.
