• Commences upon arrival of the first MPSRON ship or the first aircraft of the main-body in the AAA

• Concludes when MAGTF Commander reports all essential elements of the MAGTF are combat ready.
MPF-14 2

Lesson Purpose
• To familiarize the student with the major activities of the arrival and assembly phase, the purpose and documents that make up the arrival and assembly plan, and the staff section responsible for the development of that plan

UAA and ERP
• Confusion exists in the difference between a UAA and an ERP • UAA – Real estate
– Area to conduct arrival and assembly – AAOE is the C2 within respective UAA

• ERP – Reception point for MPE/S
– Discrete point within MSE’s UAA – Final reception and accountability
