locate themselves in or near every critical base in the rear area. The RAOC/RTOC will constantly
coordinate with the PM for support.
The engineers are positioned throughout the battlefield. The RAOC/RTOC must be aware of their
location, capabilities, and response time. The use of engineers for missions must be coordinated
through the G3/DCSOPs and the echelon engineer. The engineer mission requirements must be
reviewed by the RAOC/RTOC. Then, the G3 must be contacted to gain a full understanding of the
priority of missions the commander has for the engineers. This teamwork will provide the ADC plans
section with groundwork to develop other sources of ADC support where engineer assets are austere
or not available. The engineers will provide critical ADC support on a task or OPCON base (hardening
bases, building bunkers, or laying mines). However, they must not be relied upon as a sole source unit
Explosive Ordnance Disposal Units (EOD). EOD units will support the RAOC/RTOC. The EOD unit
will assist all Army units located within their assigned area. The RAOC/RTOC will use the
commander's base assessment. He will assist the EOD control center in prioritizing incidents.
Air Defense Artillery. The RAOC/RTOC at each echelon will ensure that a communications link is
maintained through the echelon tactical operations centers (div, corps) or in the EAC with the region air
defense commander. The link with the region air defense commander ensures that the air defense!
warning status is monitored. Also, that it is reported to all bases in the rear area. The division airspace
management element (DAME) and the corps airspace management element (CAME) will provide
information and warnings. The air defense warning (ADW) will be reported as follows:
o ADW Red-Attack by hostile aircraft or missiles is imminent or in progress.
o ADW Yellow-Attack by hostile aircraft or missiles is probable.
o ADW White-Attack by hostile aircraft or missiles is improbable.
G2/intelligence. The RAOC/RTOC must generate requirements for intelligence collectors. The
RAOC/RTOC is a user of intelligence. The RAOC/RTOC must ask questions of the G/2 echelon
support elements. The G2 can then identify collectors to assist the RAOC/RTOC intelligence officer.
The RAOC/RTOC must take charge in this area. Requests for overflights of the rear and
counterintelligence teams to operate near built-up areas and industrial facilities are part of the
RAOC/RTOC means of getting the intelligence for the rear operations.
Counterintelligence (CI). Early efforts with CI teams will aid the RAOC/RTOC in identifying and
reducing Level II threats in the rear area. CI teams work through the G2. The CI teams will coordinate
with local police, government officials, and counterterrorist groups. CI teams will provide invaluable
sources for intelligence. Also, they can aid in the identification of levels
