Director’s Comments—Supporting the Warfighter
The mission of the Air Land SeaApplication (ALSA) Center is torapidly develop multi-Service tactics,techniques, and procedures (MTTP)publications and studies in order tomeet the immediate needs of thewarfighter. The purpose of the
 Air  Land Sea Bulletin (ALSB)
is to“spread the word” on recent conceptsand issues while providing a vehiclefor the cross-flow of informationamong the Services. The Airmen,Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, and CoastGuardsmen who live and fight at thetactical level of war are the lifebloodof ALSA and the reason why the
is written. As the ALSADirector, I will keep our focussquarely on that mission andmaintain the
as a forum foryour multi-Service dialogues.The theme for this issue of the
is Nontraditional Intelligence,Surveillance, and Reconnaissance(NTISR) which is a topic of significantrelevance for both Operation IRAQIFREEDOM and OperationENDURING FREEDOM. So whetheryou call it NTISR, Inherent ISR, orbelieve there is only ISR, one factremains constant. Advancedtechnology, such as Sniper Pods andTOW Thermal Imaging sights, isproviding increased capabilities tothe warfighter, and smart operatorslike you are discovering ways to useexisting equipment to improve thecommander's situational awareness.The lead off article by LieutenantColonel Lewis D. “DoughHill (Ret)reviews an Air Force definition of NTISR and its practical applicationin Operation DESERT STORM andOperation IRAQI FREEDOM (OIF).In the second article, LieutenantColonel Wayne L. Shaw III discussesthe need for NTISR tactics,techniques, and procedures (TTP)and focuses in on his experienceswith the Remotely Operated Video-Enhanced Receiver (ROVER) duringOIF. For the final article, Capt Kevin“Gunner” Pratte describes theeffectiveness of “packaging” NTISRsystems with traditional ISRmethods.At the back of this and everyissue of the
, you will find acomplete listing of current ALSApublications which are available tothe warfighter on our website. Asyou will note from our missionstatement, our publications cover theentire military spectrum, and if something is missing we want tohear from you ASAP. In the comingyear, we will publish revised editionsof 
 Joint Application of Firepowe(JFIRE)
Tactical ConvoyOperations (TCO)
while we developnew publications in the areas of 
 Air Operations in Maritime SurfaceWarfare,
Strike Coordination and  Reconnaissance
.We know that our readers are abroad and varied group of warriors,many with multiple tours in one ormore theaters, and the bottomline isthat we want to hear from you, learnfrom your practical experience withtactics, techniques, and proceduresat the tactical level, and improveService interoperability. Even whenyour input doesnt directly match thetheme of a particular issue of the
, we often find it applicable toan MTTP that may be coming due forrevision. That said, don’t be bashful.We need you to continue submittingarticles and ideas so we can improvelife for the warfighter. Our January2008
will be focused onmilitary operations in urban terrain(MOUT) and the May 2008
willbe focused on advisor teams workingwith foreign forces. The suspense foraccepting articles for these two
 issues is 15 October 2007 and 29February 2008 respectively.ALSA is no different than yourorganization, and we experienced thetraditional summer personnel
