Intelligence Support to Targeting Application Background
The Intelligence Support to Targeting Application should serve as the initial and primary focal point within a fully integrated mission analysis and mission planning framework supporting Commander and intel staff workflows and the Situational Understanding visualization that the mission and an evolving operational environment demands. This application is intended to operate at brigade and higher echelons.
The Intelligence Warfighting Function’ Intelligence Support to Targeting Application (APP) is intended by design to reflect multiple intelligence requirements for an Army Service Component Command (ASCC) and must be compatible with Mission Command Information System Architecture and computing environment services’ provisions.
The APP is an integral by-product of Intelligence support to targeting and information operations. The APP does not replace any all-source related applications that supports initial target development. The APP serves to capture multiple intelligence support to targeting doctrinal attributes with a digital matrix and a digital visualization tool, enabling the intelligence user to track HPT targeting activities within a single view as applied to a given Army operation.
