PREFACE
1. This latest edition of the Staff Officers’ Handbook (SOHB) has been prepared, published and distributed by the Land Warfare 1 (LW1) Branch of DGD&D. The layout follows the previous format but introduces a system of Serials for each major Part of the Handbook. This will allow for easier amendment to take account of the inevitable changes that will occur. It is intended to issue an amendment to this Handbook in the year 2000 and to plan on a major revision in the year 2001. 2. Each page of the SOHB has an authority recorded which indicates to the reader the original source of the information recorded on that page. This also implies that the authority recorded on each page is responsible for that information and thus any changes or amendments to that information will have to be authorised by that sponsor before acceptance by DGD&D for subsequent inclusion into any future amendments or revisions. Suggestions for improving the content or layout of SOHB are always welcome. These can be sent direct to RO1 Author, LW1, DGD&D. 3. This edition of SOHB has attempted to reflect some of the changes promulgated by the Strategic Defence Review (SDR) – particularly in regard to ORBATs and new structures. Some new structures are still in the proposal stage, or have not been endorsed by the appropriate establishment authority and others have not yet been finalised. Readers will have to recognise that this is an iterative process and will (probably) never be entirely accurate or up to date. The most up to date information about organisations or structures should be available from the sponsor of that page. 4. SDR is not the only complication for an up to date SOHB. NATO is in the process of changing its map symbology and although this process has not yet been ratified it is expected that within the next 12 months all NATO nations will be using the new map symbology. These details are not recorded in this SOHB. This, however, reinforces the rationale for the UK Armed Forces to move away from using single Service and possibly joint forms of operational staff duties and abbreviations in the near future. The Joint Services Command and Staff College (JSCSC) have the overall sponsorship of all Joint Service Writing and are in the process of rewriting JSP 101 which has been in use for many years. An interim JSP 101(A) has been produced which covers Service Writing in peace time HQs and the MOD but this does not replace Parts 4 and 5 of JSP 101 which deal with operational staff duties and are still extant. The reader will see that Part 5 of this new Handbook is in two portions – a portion covering UK operational staff duties and a portion covering NATO-agreed staff duties. There are significant differences. It is intended that the next edition of SOHB will not have any UK operational staff duties formats at all and that all Army formations and units will make use of NATO-agreed formats and abbreviations in their operational writing. 5. It is inevitable in a Handbook of this type that minor errors and inconsistencies will occur in the preparation of these Serials. The altered layout does allow for easy addition and subtraction of material when necessary, and a major portion of the Handbook has been recorded electronically in WORD format. Readers are encouraged to send amendments/changes/corrections to RO1 Author, LW1, DGD&D at any time using a floppy disc to forward their contribution. In addition, the RO1 Author may seek sponsor assistance to rationalise and harmonise the layout and presentation of material provided for publication before the next major revision of the Handbook. 6. Finally as a result of experience gained, it is apparent that SOHB is an important part of a unit’s publications and does not just serve as a useful tool to those on Staff courses (as originally envisaged). To this end SOHB has been placed on DGD&D’s CD-ROM in order to allow staff officers at major HQs to have the Handbook readily available on any appropriate computer network. It is also distributed in hard copy form on a wide scale to all units, training establishments and other Army groupings (DAs, training teams, independent minor units, garrison libraries etc). Requests for additional copies can be made to DGD&D by telephone, fax or letter, but have to be properly justified before additional copies can be allocated.

Notes: 1. A wide variety of ac from many nations may provide sp to UK forces. RAF and selection of most common other nations ac shown here. AI is normally preferred method of providing air sp due to lower threat and greater tactical freedom for ac. 2. Close Air Support (CAS) may be provided by almost any ac capable of dropping a bomb or firing a gun. CAS is a role requiring considerable trg and expertise from both aircrew and FACs if it is to be eff. Not all ac possess the appropriate performance in terms of manoeuvrability, wpn systems and sortie rate capability. More specifically: a. Ac require con by FAC (may be helborne). Laser Target Marker Operator (LTMO) is a bonus, and can be used by Harrier, Jaguar, A-10, F-16D, Tornado GR1/4, F-18 (USMC). b. Ac op in multiples of 2 or 4. c. Ac carry chaff flares and EW eqpt for self-def. 3. These are standard loads, a mix of wpns can be carried. 4. Paveway II/III are laser PGMs. 5.

SERIAL 1 – TIME AND SPACE PLANNING 1. Planning and Execution Time. Execution time includes a small allowance for movement within the next superior comd’s area and runs from receiving the order, through the battle procedure, to starting to execute the plan. No allowance is made for anticipation or preparation before receiving the order. At the higher levels and with formations held in greater depth extra time must be added for movement. e.g. for a corps held in depth as an AG reserve add 24 hours for movement.

2. Time Lines. A useful example of this is that a Bde Comd’s area of interest in terms of time is up to 30 hours ahead. He has to make a decision that affects his whole comd no later than 12 hours before he wishes it executed and 6 hours for one affecting a single unit. 3. Enhancing Timeliness. Fight the battle appropriate to the level of comd and in the decision time frame of that level of comd. The execution time can be speeded up and hence decision can be delayed by: a. Planning for Options - but this requires time in advance of the event and that events unfold as anticipated. b. c. Grouping to a standard pattern - difficult with scarce resources. Lowering decision levels by: (1) Committing smaller groupings - but this lacks combat power.

(2) Grouping a bit of everything with everyone - but this runs the risk of penny packetting. (3) Mission comd.

Used by gun btys adopting static deployment methods and other arty elms of sufficient size, eg an ACP or elms of STA arty. Usually loc within an ARA. Requires max overhead cover, a track/road circuit and, where poss, areas of hardstanding to allow Xloading. DROPS mob is the essential factor. Close to an MSR. Used by AS90 btys adopting a manoeuvre deployment method. Not for the exclusive use of arty and usage must be carefully coord wit other tps in the area. Used by AS90 regts adopting a manoeuvre deployment method. Not for the exclusive use of arty and usage must be carefully coord with other tps in the area. It is likely that regt AMA will incl at least 1 ARA for use by an ACP and/or regt ech. Used by MLRS btys adopting a dispersed deployment method. May be sub divided into 2 3 x tp AMAs each 5 km . Not for the exclusive use of arty and usage must be carefully coord with other tps in the area taking into account the distinctive firing signature, the likelihood of retaliatory attack and the toxic nature of th rkt efflux. A Px bty requires 4 x 1 km ARAs, 1 for each of 3 launch/rec sects and 1 for the bty ech. The 3 GCS/GDTs do not warrant exclusive ARAs but should, where poss, be deployed on high ground. Each COBRA radar requires a 1 km ARA in which to adopt ‘emit and skit’ deployment tac.

SERIAL 12 – EW PLANNING Definitions and Abbreviations 1. The British Army has adopted the NATO definitions for EW which cover sea, land and air operations, but has amplified them to illustrate the part that EW plays in land operations. NATO and British Army definitions are given below. NATO Definitions (See also: AAP-6) 2. Electronic Warfare Support Measures (ESM). ESM is that division of EW involving action taken to search for, intercept, identify and locate radiated electromagnetic energy for the purpose of immediate threat recognition. It provides a source of information required for immediate decisions involving electronic counter measures (ECM), electronic protective measures (EPM) and other tactical actions such as avoidance, targeting and homing. 3. Electronic Warfare Countermeasures (ECM). ECM is that division of EW involving actions taken to prevent or reduce an enemy’s effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum (ie active EW measures in British terminology). 4. Electronic Protective Measures (EPM). EPM is that division of EW involving actions taken to ensure friendly effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum despite the enemy’s use of electromagnetic energy. There are two subdivisions of EPM: a. Active EPM. Detectable measures, such as altering transmitter parameters as necessary, to ensure friendly effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum. b. Passive EPM. Undetectable measures, such as operating procedures and technical features of equipment, which are meant to ensure friendly effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum. 5. Communications Intelligence (COMINT). COMINT is defined as technical material and intelligence information derived from electromagnetic communications and communications systems (eg morse, voice, teleprinter, facsimile) by other than intended recipients. 6. Electronic Intelligence (ELINT). ELINT is defined as technical material and intelligence information derived from electromagnetic non-communications transmissions (eg radar, navigation aids, jamming transmission) by other than intended recipients. 7. Signals Intelligence (SIGINT). SIGINT is the generic term used to describe COMINT and ELINT when there is no requirement to differentiate between these two types of intelligence, or to represent fusion of the two.

4 - 12 - 1 Issue 1.0: Jul 99

8. Emission Control (EMCON). EMCON is the selective control of emitted electromagnetic or acoustic energy. The aim may be twofold: a. To minimize the enemy’s detection of emissions and exploitation of the information so gained. b. To reduce electromagnetic interference thereby improving friendly sensor performance. UK Definitions (See also JWP 0.01.1) 9. Tactical SIGINT. Tactical SIGINT is the process of intercept, analysis and collation of enemy electronic emissions by tactical EW units to provide combat intelligence for a tactical commander. This term must not be confused with Strategic SIGINT. 10. Offensive EW. Offensive EW is concerned with exploiting, degrading and preventing the enemy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is divided into passive (ESM) and active (ECM) measures. 11. Passive EW Measures. Passive EW measures are those measures taken to exploit the enemy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum in order to gain combat intelligence (from the tactical SIGINT product) for the tactical commander. 12. Active EW Measures. Active EW measures are those measures by which the enemy’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum can be degraded or denied by jamming or electronic deception techniques. 13. Defensive EW. Defensive EW is aimed at retaining our own ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum and includes tactical, procedural and technical measures to counter the enemy EW threat. 14. Electronic Jamming. Electronic jamming is the deliberate radiation, re-radiation, or reflection of electromagnetic energy with the object of impairing the use of electronic devices, equipment or systems being used by an enemy. 15. Electronic Deception. Electronic deception is the deliberate radiation, re-radiation, alteration, absorption, or reflection of electromagnetic energy in a manner intended to mislead an enemy in the interpretation or use of information received by his electronic systems. 16. Manipulative Electronic Deception. Manipulative electronic deception is the simulation or alteration of friendly electromagnetic radiation to accomplish deception (eg false radio nets). 17. Imitative Electronic Deception. Imitative electronic deception is the introduction of electromagnetic radiation into enemy channels which imitate his own emissions (eg breaking into enemy nets).

That degree of air superiority wherein the opposing air force is incapable of effective interference. Local Air Superiority. CAS missions require detailed control to integrate them with the fire and/or movement of friendly forces and must therefore be responsive to direction by the land force at all stages of execution. Enemy air effort is insufficient to prejudice the success of operations. neutralize or delay the enemy’s military potential before it can be brought to bear effectively against friendly forces. Air Superiority. Both CAS and BAI are tasked in support of the land commander against targets directly threatening land operations. though fire co-ordination arrangements are necessary if the targets are short of the FSCL.
