Terms in this set (13)
a. ASW: Anti-Submarine Warfare is the destruction or neutralization of enemy submarines. It includes the action taken by aircraft, surface ships, and other submarines. The goal of ASW is to deny the enemy the effective use of its submarine.
b. ASUW: Anti-Surface Warfare is the destruction or neutralization of enemy surface combatants and merchant ships. The aim of ASUW is to deny the enemy the effective use of its surface warships and cargo-carrying vessels.
c. IW: Information Warfare is the action taken to achieve information superiority over the adversary by influencing his information and information-based processes, systems, and computer-based networks, while defending our own. IW capitalizes on the growing sophistication, connectivity, and reliance on information technology. The ultimate target of IW is the information-dependent process, human or automated. Intelligence and communications support are critical to conducting offensive and defensive IW.
d. AW: Air Warfare is the action required to destroy or reduce an enemy's air and missile threat. It includes the use of interceptors, bombers, antiaircraft guns, surface-to-air missiles (SAMs), air-to-air missiles (AAMs), and electronic attack (EA) procedures. It also includes the destruction of the missile threat before and after launch. Other measures used to reduce the effects of hostile air actions include cover, concealment, dispersion, deception (including electronic), and mobility.
e. STW: Strike Warfare is the destruction or neutralization of enemy land-based targets with conventional or nuclear missiles. This includes targets assigned to nuclear strategic forces, building yards, and operating bases from which an enemy is capable of conducting or supporting air, surface, or subsurface operations.
f. NSW: Special Warfare is distinguished by unique objectives, weapons, and forces, and is characterized by the following:
Principally offensive, involving high physical and political risk
Directed at high-value, critical, and often perishable targets
Principally politico-military in nature and subject to oversight at the national level
Frequently covert or clandestine
It includes special mobile operations, unconventional warfare, coastal and river interdiction, beach and coastal reconnaissance, and tactical intelligence operations.
The mission of the Reserve component is, as defined in Section 10102 of Title 10 U.S.C., to "provide trained units and qualified persons available for active duty in the armed forces, in time of war or national emergency and at such other times as the national security may require."
Strategy demands the Selected Reserve (SELRES) be prepared to respond to the entire spectrum of requirements, including war or national emergency, contingency operations, military operations other than war (MOOTW) , Peacetime Contributory Support (PCS), humanitarian operations, full or partial mobilization (including pre and/or post mobilization) and at such other times as the national security may require.
a. Mine Warfare UUV Platoon: Responsible for
operational test and evaluation of new UUV technology for both Surface Mine Countermeasures (SMCM) and Underwater Mine Countermeasures (UMCM), providing MCM baseline and tactical surveys for strategic and operational Intelligence Preparation of the Operational Environment (IPOE), and mine hunting capability to MCM commanders.
b. Naval Oceanography ASW Team (NOAT): NOATs are experts in ASW-related environmental analysis, forecasting, and planning. They complement the skills resident in other experts like ACINT specialists, sonar system operators, and IMAT MTT TDA trainers. They deploy to provide direct support to ASW Commanders and staffs at the theater, strike group, DESRON, and MOCC levels. A team is typically composed of 2 to 3 personnel to provide on-scene planning and analysis support to ASW operations and to act as a forward liaison element to the ASW Reachback Cell. NOAC Stennis teams support all CONUS-based carrier strike group staffs through workups and deployments as well as fly-away teams for ASW operations and major exercises in the Second, Third, Fifth, and Sixth Fleets. NOAC Yokosuka deploys NOATS in support of forward deployed naval forces, and supports CTF-74, CTF-72, CTF-57, CTF-54, and CDS-15 planning. Most NOATs are continuously supporting multiple units and may provide support remotely via email, chat, etc.
c. Strike Group Oceanography Team (SGOT): Provide timely, comprehensive and tactically relevant METOC products and services in direct support of deploying Carrier Strike Group (CSG), Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG), and Amphibious Readiness Group (ARG) Commanders, assigned units, staff and other U.S. and Joint or Coalition forces, as directed. The SGOTs are departments within the Fleet Weather Centers (FWC) in Norfolk and San Diego.
All operational CVN and LHA/D class ships embark an SGOT to augment the ship's OA division underway. Teams typically consist of an Aerographer's Mate (AG) Chief, three AG Forecasters (NEC 7412), and four AG Technicians (NEC 0000). The role of an SGOT is to act as organic METOC support to the OA Division Officer and embarked staffs afloat, and to assist in the integration of METOC impacts into warfighter mission planning. Onboard LHA/Ds the SGOT coordinates all METOC support with the embedded MEU forecasters to provide comprehensive support to their respective ARG.
d. Mobile Environmental Team (MET): A smaller MET is utilized to support specific warfighting missions. A MET Team typically consists of one AG Forecaster and one AG Technician, but will flex based on the mission. METs are deployed based on the following prioritization, along with input from the Numbered Fleet METOC Officer:
JTF-Civil Support, Humanitarian Assistance / Disaster Relief (HA/DR) Missions
Flag Staff, Maritime Headquarters, Major Fleet Exercise, and Surge Operations Support
Maritime Security Operations and Theater Security Cooperation Support
United States Coast Guard (USCG) Support
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Support
e. Fleet Survey Team (FST): Safety of navigation support is provided by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) located at Stennis Space Center, MS and its collocated subordinate command, Fleet Survey Team (FST). NAVOCEANO and FST can produce navigation products for short-term use by U.S. Navy vessels when neither NGA nor NOAA can meet immediate operational requirements. Additionally, FSTs maneuverability can allow rapid collection, analysis and dissemination of shallow water bathymetric data that provides an expeditionary safety of navigation capability that focuses on one-time use products that give the user qualitative vice quantitative information to support expeditionary ship-to-shore movement.
