- Psychological Operations Processes
This section describes the processes that are required to deliver alliance psychological operations’ (PSYOPS) as a key enabler in a commander’s campaign plan and its use across the full spectrum of military operations. It is highly likely that there will be a psychological impact resulting from almost all actions (or inactions) undertaken by the alliance. This impact is likely to be felt not only in the immediate operational area but also, due to the sophistication of modern media communications, much further afield. It is incumbent upon commanders at all levels, therefore, to take into account both the actual and potential psychological effects (a measurable behaviour change in a target audience) that may arise from actions in their area of operations.
