MILENG Strategic Assessment Process

On direction from the NAC the Response Direction Group (RDG) in the Strategic HQ will develop SACEUR’s Strategic Assessment. This may be an incremental process. The Strategic MILENG Planner is an integral member of the RDG and reviews and updates the analysis of the strategic environment (PMESII) developed during Phase 1. He will identify MILENG freedoms and constraints which have an influence on the ability to conduct an operation. The Strategic MILENG Planner will start to develop a Recognized Engineer Picture’ supported by the Operational level as appropriate. Concurrent activity and planning at the tactical level is generally carried out on a national basis. At this stage there may not yet be a decision to take a military response so there are no assigned tactical level headquarters or units.
