Force Protection Mission Analysis

Mission analysis is a logical process for extracting and deducing, from the OPORD and commander’s guidance, the specified and implied tasks, and mission essential actions necessary to fulfil a mission. It is a dynamic process that continues as the situation and the mission are reviewed. Any of the tasks and actions identified through mission analysis that fall within the FP fundamental elements should be covered in detail in the FP annex to the operation plan or order. Additionally, the FP C2 element will need to coordinate and assign these as mission tasks to the appropriate FP assets. The mission analysis includes the determination of the higher command authority’s intent; the analysis of Allied security and military direction, including short and long-term objectives to attain the end state; and pre-conditions for success.
