- Initial Operational MILENG Understanding of Crisis Area Process
At the Operational level, through dialogue with the strategic level staff, MILENG staff maintain situational awareness and undertake routine training. As part of this JFENGR staff will continue routine data collection activities. Upon receipt of a task from the Strategic HQ, or if aware of imminent changes to the political situation or the start of a new crisis, JFENGR staff will intensify information collection. MILENG annexes of applicable contingency plans will be scrutinized and updated. Country databases will need to be maintained to contain as much information as possible on terrain, infrastructure and country specific commercial capabilities in the area of interest.
