Maritime Intelligence Surveillance & Reconnaissance
Effective interaction of INTEL and OPS processes
In June 2016, the Military Committee Maritime Standardization Board (MCMSB) tasked the Maritime Operations Working Group (MAROPSWG) to develop an Allied Tactical Publication (ATP) on Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR). This new doctrine shall specify the application of the ISR process in the maritime domain. The overarching goal is for the process to enable naval assets to build up a sustained and persistent Maritime ISR capability.
As permanent member of the MAROPSWG, the COE CSW is involved in developing this process and contributes with operational and intelligence expertise.
The main objective is to produce a publication, which enables operators to correctly task organic and non-organic ISR-assets in order to contribute to effective information-collection for meeting the requirements of the Commander.
