Mission Command Structure
A Command Post is a unit headquarters where the commander and staff perform their activities common to all CPs include:
1.Maintaining running estimates and the COP.
4.Developing and disseminating orders.
5.Coordinating with higher, lower, and adjacent units.
6.Conducting knowledge management and information management.
7.Performing CP administration (displacing, security).
8.Supporting the commander's decisionmaking process.

10.Maintaining a common operational picture.
11.Conduct network operations
TACTICAL COMMAND POST
IS A FACILITY CONTAINING A TAILORED PORTION OF A UNIT HEADQUARTERS DESIGNED TO CONTROL PORTIONS OF AN OPERATION FOR A LIMITED TIME.
ARE GOOD FOR GAP CROSSING.
WHEN EMPLOYED, TACTICAL CP functions include, but not limited to
monitoring and controlling current operations.
monitoring and assessing the progress of higher and adjacent units,
performing short range planning.
providing input to targeting and future operations planning.
COMMAND POST ORGANZATION
CP cell is grouping of personnel and equipment organized by WfF or planning horizon to facilitate the exercise of mission command FM 6-0 para 1-29 p. 1-5
Functional cells within a CP are intelligence, movement and maneuver, fires, protection, and sustainment. FM 6-0 para 1-30 p. 1-5
Integrating cells are organized by planning horizon. FM 6-0 para 1-37 p. 3-6
Functional cells coordinate and synchronize forces and activities by warfighting function. Integrating cells coordinate and synchronize forces and warfighting functions within a specified planning horizon and include the plans, future operations, and current operations cells.
Helps the commander understand enemy, terrain and weather, and civil considerations.
Requests, receives and analyzes information to produce and distribute intelligence products.
Movement and Maneuver Cell
Coordinates activities and systems to allow the commander to gain a positional advantage.
Maneuver: employment of forces through movement in combination with fires.
Movement: Distribution over lines of communication.
Manned by AC2, aviation, engineer, geospatial, and space personnel
Functional Cells (2 of 3)
Coordinates use of Army indirect fires, joint fires, and cyber-electromagnetic activities through the targeting process
Led by fire support officer (BDE and below)
Manned by elements of fire support, the USAF, and the Electronic Warfare staff section.
Preserves the force through composite risk management.
Manned by members of several staff sections: air and missile defense; chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosives; engineer; and provost marshal (among others).
Functional Cells (3 of 3)
Coordinates for support and services that ensure freedom of action, extended operational reach, and prolonged endurance.
Most tasks are associated with logistics, personnel services, and Army health support system.
Manned by representatives from personnel, logistics, financial management, engineer, and surgeon.
Mission Command: The entire command post assist the commander in the exercise of mission command. Therefore, commanders do not form a specific mission command functional cell. All of the various CP cells and staff sections assist the commander with specific tasks of the mission command WfF. For example, all functioning and integrating cells assist the commander in the operations process. As such, the CP as a whole, including the commander, deputy commanders, CSMs, represents the mission command WfF. FM 6-0 para 1-30 p. 1-5 to 1-6
Plans, FUOP, COIC Cells
Plans cell plans for long-range planning horizons.
Develops plans and orders, including branch plans and sequels beyond the current order.
Oversees military deception planning.
Future operations cell plans for in mid-range planning horizon.
Divisions and above have a future operations cell.
Battalion and brigades do not have a future operations cell.
Current operations integration cell
Assesses the current situation, regulates forces and warfighting functions IAW mission, commander's intent, and concept of operations.
Displays the common operational picture and conducts shift
changes, assessments, and other briefings as required.
Establish the common operating picture
An information requirement is any information element the commander and staff require to successfully conduct operations. Relevant information that answers information requirements is—
Accurate: conveys the true situation.
Timely: available in time to make decisions.
Usable: portrayed in common, easily understood formats & displays.
Complete: provides all information necessary.
Precise: contains sufficient detail.
Reliable: trustworthy and dependable. ADRP 6-0, para 2-81, p 2-13.
COP - a single display of relevant information within a CDR's area of interest tailored to the user's requirements and based on common data and information shared by more than one CMD.
ADRP 6-0, para 2-84, p 2-13.
A major part of a CP's battle rhythm.
Overseen by COS/XO.
Scheduled and sequenced logically so one group's outputs become the next group's inputs.
Allow time between meetings for analysis & preparation.
Attendance decisions are critical—some staff groups may not have adequate personnel to attend all WG's.
When one is attending a meeting, he or she is not attending to other duties and responsibilities.
Combine WG's when feasible to reduce the number of meetings.
A grouping of predetermined staff reps with delegated decision authority for a particular purpose or function.
Similar to working groups except for the additional authority.
Commanders determine the subjects boards address and the membership.
Unit SOPs establish the following for each board: purpose, frequency, required inputs, expected outputs, attendees, agenda.
A bureau is a long-standing functional organization, with a supporting staff designed to perform a specific function or activity within a JFC's HQ.
Examples: Joint Visitor Bureau (JVB) and Joint Information Bureau (JIB)
A center is a command and control facility established for a specific purpose with a narrow focus.
Centers are common at operational echelons; for example the Joint Interrogation and Debriefing Center of a JTF and the Theater Materiel Management Center of an Army Service Component Command.
Centers are also formed by Army tactical commanders; for example, a civil affairs battalion under the operational control of a division normally establishes a Civil-Military Operations Center.
