The corps RAOC conducts rear operations in the corps rear area. This RAOC will provide missions to
the MP, engineers, and EODCC in support of rear operations. The corps RAOC coordinates with MP
and engineers, brigade headquarters, and HN authorities. The corps RAOC is identical to the theater
Army Command Area Support Group RTOC. The corps RAOC will also have direct access to the
corps G2 for intelligence information and planning.
The CSG RAOCs are management centers for the corps RAOC. The CSG RAOC will coordinate with
all base clusters in the support group. The CSG RAOC will submit mission requests for MP, engineers,
and EOD support to the corps RAOC. This size RTOC is also found as theater Army Area Command
Headquarters (see Figure 5-10).
The TA RTOC is a staff element for coordination and control of rear operations. The TA RTOC, located
near the TA DCSOPs, coordinates with the HN and RTOCs of the TAACOMs. The TA RTOC provides
rear operation directives from the TA commander.
The TAACOM RTOC has the same control relationship as the corps RAOC. Because of the size of the
TAACOM area, the TAACOM ASG RTOCs coordinate mission requests for engineer, MP, and EOD
assets directly with the units in the ASG.
The ASG In the TAACOM will request ROC support from assets in the TAACOM. The ASG RTOC will
request support from the MP and engineer brigade for rear operations.
RAOC/RTOC Internal Responsibilities
RAOCs/RTOCs are organized differently at each echelon. Basic responsibilities are inherent to each
action. The small RAOCs/RTOCs that do not have some sections (see Figure 5-11) have personnel,
such as artillery officer and ordnance officer, within the organization. They perform these tasks or
satellite off other echelon organizations for specific support.
The responsibilities within the RAOC/RTOC sections are detailed below.
The headquarters and administrative section coordinates all support as required for the RAOC/RTOC.
This includes all personnel, administrative, and logistic support.
The operations and intelligence section performs the following:
o Receives, correlates, analyzes, and reports the rear operation situation to the G3 and base
o Develops priority intelligence requirements (PIR) and other intelligence requirements (OIR) to
the G2. They assist intelligence collectors in gathering intelligence for rear operations.
o Receives intelligence and information from the LEs. Reports it to the G2. Receives analyzed
intelligence and information from the G2. Applies it to critical bases.
