Force Protection studies
G.29.R - FORCE PROTECTION FOR EU BG OPERATIONS.
|The study covers all activities of EU BG during operations in a land-environment on tactical level. Firstly the study analyzes the study T.37.R in order to obtain the main tasks and the key elements. Secondly consider the Force Protection Model and her impact on the command and control process. Moreover this study takes into account all the scenarios given in T.37.R and determines, for every scenario, the required Force Protection capabilities needed. In this way the study should be a valuable tool for the EU BG Commander in the planning and in the conduct of EU BG operations. Finally states required recommendations for future Force Protection materiel developments.|
G.27.R - FIELD CAMPS OF FORCES DEPLOYED ON OPERATIONS
|HARMONISATION OF SELECTION CRITERIA FOR SITES AND IMPROVEMENT OF THEIR PROTECTION.|
|The study encompasses the whole range of missions and environmental conditions in future operations the forces of Finabel member nations might be involved in. It describes all the required criteria that field camps have to meet for the different joint and multinational units accommodated in succession. It facilitates the transfer to local government or an international organisation or non-governmental organisation. And it includes principles of active and passive protection for deployed forces.|
G.28.R - CBRN - EOD RISK MANAGEMENT TOOL FOR THE INCIDENT COMMANDER WITHIN AN EU BG OPERATION
|The study is directed to the IC as a “tool” in the form of a “check list” to better coordinate the activities of CBRN and EOD teams/units in case of intervention and was developed and tailored to EU BG operations. The study describes both CBRN and EOD threats, and identifies an Incident Management process to support the Incident Commander to take appropriate decisions to properly manage the threat. In it have been developed all available procedures to be adopted by the Incident Commander on site. The study delivers flexible solutions to a variety of situations, identifying the necessity to tailor assets, equipment and course of action at the tactical level. This study is a “live document”, to be updated and upgraded on the basis of Lessons Learned from future exercises and operations. The study concludes with the recommendation that the custodianship of the document is assigned to the EDA PT CBRN EOD.|
G.26.R - LOGISTIC FORCE PROTECTION ON A MULTINATIONAL OPERATION
|HOW TO INCREASE PROTECTION OF LOGISTIC CAPABILITIES OF FINABEL NATIONS DEPLOYED INDIVIDUALLY OR COLLECTIVELY ON OPERATIONS.|
|The study covers all activities of logistic forces of Finabel member nations during operations in a land-environment on tactical level including activities of the medical service. The study describes the logistic forces engaged in future operations, their tasks and their capabilities. It defines the threat these forces are exposed to and analyses the force protection capabilities of logistic forces currently available. The study investigates the force protection requirements in future operations concerning personnel, equipment, stocks and operational procedures, analyses the gap between investigated requirements and capabilities currently available and closes with recommendations, how to close the gap.|
G.25.R - MODIFICATION OF CBRN DEFENCE ACCORDING TO LESSONS LEARNED FROM RECENT OPERATIONS
|MODIFICATION OF CBRN DEFENCE ACCORDING TO LESSONS LEARNED FROM RECENT OPERATIONS IN MULTINATIONAL ENVIRONMENT|
|After September 11th 2001, many countries and organisations developed new concepts of operations in the context of CBRN defence. At least some elements of these have been tested in recent operations on different theatres. However, the results have not always been shared between nations, denying their full value. This study has sought to assemble, summarise and draw preliminary conclusions from the lessons learned in order to allow all the Finabel countries to benefit from those experiences. To this end, it is proposed that an interactive record of CBRN Defence LL should be created and maintained as a living repository of operational experiences, difficulties and possible remedial actions.|
G.24.R - WATER SUPPLY ON OPERATIONS
This study deals with all the phases of water production for the use of troops on operations, from any kind of sources and whatever the tactical situation, covering the following topics :
G.23.R - ENGINEERS AND ROBOTISATION
This study proposes potential employments for engineer robotised systems in the future, as a consequence of new technologies.
Society increasingly resorts to robotisation to facilitate a wide range of tasks that would be either repetitive, difficult, or even dangerous for man to undertake. The Armed Forces are also affected by these developments. These changes may be driven by a desire to exceed current levels of human performance, a need to reduce the size of a force or simply to save lives and reduce casualties.
This study covers the full spectrum of engineer robotisation, focusing on the systems that are more likely to be introduced within the stated timeframe of the study.
In the future, the contribution of robots or robotised systems in both high-risk and low-risk scenarios is likely to become a reality for the execution of a wide range of engineer missions.
They will be capable of undertaking the classic engineering missions that are: Mobility, Counter-Mobility, Protection and General Engineer Support.The future employment of robots in modern cross-spectrum operations appears very likely.
G.22.R - ENGINEER SUPPORT FOR MILITARY OPERATIONS IN URBAN AREAS
This study deals with the support provided by Engineers during military operations in a built-up area, covering the following topics :
General description of the urban environment and its challenges.
Missions that Engineers will be required to undertake.
Engineers’ intelligence requirements.
Technological developments including existing technology and technology to be developed to reinforce Engineer capabilities.
Influences on the organisation and use of Engineers when operating in urban environments.
G.20.R - ENGINEER SUPPORT FOR CIMIC
The aim of this document is:
G.19.R - SUBSTITUTE FOR ANTI-PERSONNEL MINES
|ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES TO ACT AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR ANTI-PERSONNEL MINES FOLLOWING THE OTTAWA AGREEMENT|
|The aim of the study is to list and analyse the technical and technological possibilities for replacing antipersonnel mines and identify possible solutions that comply with international agreements and national legislation.|
