Divisional Military Intelligence Battalion

Slide 1 (Divisional MI Bn's)

I. Introduction.

1. Tie-in: This class is intended as a review of the current and future division MI BN structure and IEW assets. You will use this information during the remainder of IBOS PEs, the All Source Automated Exploitation Exercise, and on the Final IBOS exam.

2. Objective Statement: Identify the force structure and major IEW assets found in the MI BNs and the significant differences between light and heavy divisions.

3. Safety Statement: The risk assessment code for this lesson is low IV.

Slide 2 (Objective)

4. Purpose: To provide a firm grasp of the structure and assets of the MI BNs found at each type of division.

5. Procedure: During this class I will provide to the student information on the interim and future MTOE of the MI BNs of each division.

II. Development.

Slide 3 (MI BN Hvy Division)

The MI BN of the Heavy Division has been reorganized into five distinct companies. They are:

-3 x Direct Support
-1 x General Support

Under the interim MTOE the heavy divisions have lost their LRSD. This class will discuss the assets remaining in the four types of divisions (heavy; light; abn; aaslt).

Slide 4 (HHOC Mission)

The Headquarters, Headquarters and Operations Company mission includes providing the following support to its division and Bn:

-GS IEW to the division via the ACE
-Organic equipment to downlink national; broadcast; and UAV include ASAS, GSM, MITT, and CGS
-Provide technical data and technical support to all divisional EW sensors
-Provides all classes of supply, motor, and IEW maintenance support

Slide 5 (HHOC TO&E)

The first company TO&E we will look at is the HHOC. Renamed from HHSC when this company was merged with the old Division G2 TOC Support Element (DTOCSE) to form the ACE.

Sections within this company include:

-BN HQs, to include the S1/2/3/4

-ACE, covered in a previous block

-Support PLT, to include mess, motor and track maintenance facilities

-CE/IEW maintenance, the repair shop for all IEW systems within the division, to include the EH-60A.

-Battlefield Deception, who works for the division G3 and is capable of simulative and emulative deception.

The only difference between the interim and final MTOEs of this company is the removal of the Battlefield Deception element. This organization has been removed and replaced numerous times over the last decade and may disappear once again. If removed it will most likely become an National Guard or Reserve element.

The next six slides are of typical equipment found in the HHOC.

Slide 6 (AS SS WS)

This slide shows operators using the Single Source Workstation (AN/TYQ-52 (V3)). This workstation is used by the single source analysts of the Technical Control and Processing (TC&P) section of the ACE platoon.

Slide 7 (GSM)

The Ground Station Module (GSM) is the organic downlink of the JSTARS system. This system allows for live feed from the JSTARS aircraft. Images are processed and intelligence written reports are prepared by the IMINT section of the TC&P section of the ACE.

Slide 8 (GSM Image)

Here is an example of products available to the ACE from the GSM.

Slide 9 (JDISS)

This slide is of the Joint Deployable Intelligence Support System (JDISS). This system was developed by the Navy and allows any analyst access to national and theater level databases; have e-mail capability; and generate message traffic and transfer images.

Slide 10 (TS II)

Here is a photo of the Trojan Spirit II communications system. Each division will ultimately have three of these systems. Most have one. The system operator is the 98C MOS.

Slide 11 (HHOC Mission Planning Considerations)

Each company has significant planning considerations. We will discuss those as we go along. The planning considerations of importance to the HHOC commander include:

-Location of civilian hardware/software contractors
-IEW section location (ASAS and EW systems repair)
-CL I/III and non-IEW support for the DS companies
-CL III and non-IEW support for the GS company
-location of IEW/motor maintenance contact teams
-ACE support

Slide 12 (HHOC Connectivity)

The HHOC must be able to have communications links with each of the companies and the Bn Staff. The HHOC commander may operate the Bn ADLOG net and will most likely be collocated with the Trains element.

Slide 13 (HHOC final TO&E)

The significant difference is that we lose the Battlefield Deception Element.

Slide 14 (DS Company Mission)

This company has a very straight forward mission. It is required to provide IEW support to it's assigned Bde. Unfortunately the company has no organic EW sensors. If EW sensors are assigned to the company they will need to be fully integrated into the ACT, maintenance, and resupply plan.

Slide 15 DS Company Interim TO&E)

The Direct Support Company, Interim MTOE is depicted here. The sections of this company are:

-Analytical Control Team, 6 persons who will normally collocate with the supported Bde TOC.

-Communications Section

-Operations Platoon
-CI Team, 4 persons
-IPW Team, 3 persons
-GSR Section, 4 x AN/PPS-5 GSRs

Slide 16 (PPS-5)

Here are photos of the current PPS-5 ground surveillance radar. This system is normally attached to a maneuver battalion for execution of its mission. It is capable of detecting moving vehicles out to 10KM and personnel out to 6KMs. The system is normally mounted in an M113.

In the final MTOE of this company you will loose the GSRs which will be replaced by UAV-CR baseline.

Slide 17 (DS Company Connectivity)

This slide depicts a given communications and Tasking / Reporting architecture for the DS MI company. It shows communications links with the subordinate sections, the other DS company and the rest of the MI Bn.

Not shown is the internal architecture of the ACT.

Slide 18 (DS Company Mission considerations)

When doing company planning you must consider:

-You can only provide CI & IPW support to the Bde Cdr.
-If you needed to establish a SIGINT baseline what assets would you ask for from the MI Bn?
-If you were given the EW assets who provides you Technical Data? Will you need a field SCIF?
-What about C&E support for those EW assets?

Slide 19 (DS Company Final TO&E)

In this final version of the TO&E we see that we have lost our GSRs and gained a baseline (4 a/c) of the UAV-Close. We also get a Common Ground Station (CGS) controller and downlink for our UAV system.

Slide 20 (GS Company Mission)

The mission of the GS company is to provide GS ES and EA to the entire division.

Organic sensors include TRQ-32; TLQ-17; and TSQ-138. These sensors should be tasked by the MI Bn S3 or the MI Bn Commander. However, the sensors will receive technical data directly from the SSC of the ACE.

This company may execute the OPCON of the GS Quickfix A/C if necessary.

Slide 21 (GS Company Interim TO&E)

The next organization that we will look at is the General Support Company, Interim. Under the reorganization of the MI BN all the ground based IEW systems were placed within this company. In light of this organization the maneuver Bde Cdr's will not receive DS SIGINT systems.

This company is organized into the following sections and platoons:

-3 x C&J PLTs, each PLT will have the following:

-Traffic Analysis Section with 1 x TIGER
-Electronic Support Team with 1 x TRQ-32/1 x PSC-2/PRC-119/TIGER
-Electronic Attack Team with 1 x TLQ-17 and 1 x PSC-2

-1 x EW PLT with a set of TSQ-138 Trailblazer (5 each).
-Analysis Section with 1 x TIGER

Slide 22 (TRQ-32 and PRD-12)

Shown here is a picture of the AN/TRQ-32. The TRQ-32 intercepts and locates COMINT emitters. When linked with other IEW systems the TRQ-32 can DF the enemy emitter. Its normal product is the SIGINT TACREP. The heavy division has three of these systems. It can conduct NRP with the TSQ-138, Quickfix and PRD-12.

Here is the AN/PRD-12, LMRDFS. It is capable of intercept and DF if netted. It can be netted with the TRQ-32 if necessary.

Slide 23 (TLQ-17(V)3)

The AN/TLQ-17A shown here is the only divisional ground based jammer. It intercepts and jams enemy communications. There are three systems found in the heavy division.

Slide 24 (AN/TSQ-138)

This slide shows the AN/TSQ-138 mounted on the 5-ton. The TSQ-138 is fielded in a set of 5 collectors. The system automatically intercepts, locates and DFs enemy COMINT emitters. It can conduct NRP with the TRQ-32 and Quickfix.

Slide 25 (Inside of a TSQ-138)

This slide shows the inside of the TSQ-138.

Slide 26 (GS Company Connectivity)

The GS MI Company will have its assets located across the entire divisional AO. Assets may be placed in a heavier concentration in the main effort or in the sector that provides the best RLOS to the target emitters. Relays may be placed at needed points on the battlefield to transfer traffic from the collectors to the T/A teams or directly to the CCS of the ACE.

Slide 27 (GS Company Mission Planning Considerations)

Some of the basic planning considerations include:

-Terrain deconfliction
-How to provide a baseline to the DS company
-Tasking of your Organic sensors
-OPCON of the Quickfix Plt

Slide 28 (GS Company Final TO&E)

The final MOTE of the GS company is completely different from the current version. The entire ground based IEW system now fielded will be replaced by 4 each GBCS. Additionally this company will get some type of UAV-CR or UAV-SR baseline. The exact configuration of this company has not been decided.

Slide 29 (GBCS-H)

GBCS heavy variant erecting its antenna.

Slide 30 (HUNTER UAV)

Hunter UAV on display at Ft Huachuca.

Slide 31 (Quickfix Flt Plt TO&E)

This slides shows the basic configuration of the AN/ALQ-151 Flight Platoon. The Plt is OPCON to the MI Bn for operations. All tasking/reporting and technical data flow directly from the ACE to the A/C.

The Quickfix II B currently deployed and the future Advanced Quickfix is fielded in a set of three aircraft to all divisions. Currently the Q-fix II B can conduct ES and EA missions and establish NRP with the TSQ-138 and TRQ-32 with some difficulty. In the future the A-Qfix and the GBCS, with identical ES and EA systems will automatically establish data relays and conduct interoperable missions.

Slide 32 (AN/ALQ-151)

Here is a photo of a Quickfix A/C.

Slide 33 (MI BN Lt/Abn/Aaslt Structure)

That concludes the discussion of the heavy MI BN and we will now look at the Airborne, Air Assault and Light Interim and Final MTOEs.

Slide 34 (HHOC Interim TO&E)

If you recall the HHOC MTOE for the heavy division, you will notice the similarities to this one. There is good reason for that. Because there is no difference between these regardless of the type of division you are in.

Slide 35 (HHOC Final TO&E)

The removal of the Battlefield Deception Element is the only change from the interim to the final MOTE.

Slide 36 (DS Company Interim TO&E)

The Direct Support Company, Interim is different from the heavy division. The sections in this company are:

-ACT, same functions and composition.

Operations Platoon

-CI team.
-Interrogation team
-GSR squad, with 3 x teams.
-REMBASS section.
-Imagery Processing section.

Slide 37 (AN/PPS-15)

The light/abn/aaslt divisions are equipped with the PPS-5 GSR shown here. It is capable of detecting moving vehicles out to 6KM and personnel out to 3KMs.

Slide 38 (REMBASS)

The system not found in the heavy units, REMBASS or IREMBASS is shown here. REMBASS is an MASINT system because it collects measurable types of intelligence.

Slide 39 (DS Co Final TO&E)

The final DS CO retains its ACT but the Operations Platoon changes. Within the platoon one will find:

-1 x CI Team
-1 x Interrogation Team
-1 x UAV-CR or -SR baseline
-1 x Imagery Processing sections

Slide 40 (GS Co Interim TO&E)

The interim General Support Company for these divisions is extremely different from the heavy division. Included within the company are the following:

1 x I&S PLT:

-1 x CI Team
-1 x Interrogation Team
-1 x Document Exploitation Team
-1 x GSR Squad w/PPS-5

3 x C&J PLT:

-1 x TA Team
-1 x Voice Section (TRQ-32)
-3 x LLVI (PRD-12)

Slide 40 (GS Co Final TO&E)

As with the heavy division interim, the final MTOE for the GS company bears no resemblance to the interim. They will retain their I&S PLT with REMBASS but loose the GSR. The three C&J PLTs will be replaced by one GBCS PLT which will have four each light GBCS.

Slide 41 (LRSD)

The final company that we want to review is the LRS. The heavy divisions have lost their LRS while all the light divisions retained theirs. The Abn and AASLT divisions will have 2 more teams than the light division.

Here is the MTOE for the Abn and AASLT division LRSD.

Slide 42 (LRSD Mission)

Mission of the LRS teams:

-to provide GS HUMINT collection
-used in point collection missions
-deployed out to 50 KMs
-use TACSAT or HF communications

Slide 43 (LRS Mission Planning Considerations)

LRS Mission Planning considerations include:

-8 day missions; reality 4-5
-teams provide collection not targeting data
-how do you get the teams back once you emplace them
-teams do not communicate with one another
-HF communications can be DF'd

Slide 44 (LRS Company Connectivity)

LRS communications are normally HF and or TACSAT. Teams do not talk to each other but report to the base stations on set schedules. These nets are collateral. Information is based directly to G2 Operations.

Slide 46 (Summary of Changes)

III. Conclusion.

-Total force connectivity.
-Standard DS Company.
-Technology has driven us to GBCS.
-UAV replaces GSRs.
-All gain ELINT.
-Lt/Abn/Aaslt gain EA system

Slide 47 (Your TOC)

This could be your TOC how do you plan on protecting it?

IV. What are your questions?
