SUBJECT: Designation as ARFOR
Authority for IJOA (Enclosed)
The 21st TSC is clearly at the forefront with providing USAREUR and a JTF, CJFLCC, or ARFOR
commander world-class responsive support.
If the DB deploys where the SBCT is the ARFOR
, and no higher ARFOR
exists, then there will be no GCCS-A server for the ABCS platforms in the SBCT and DB to tie into.
Just before the exercise, the Division received three ASAS RWS systems that III Corps dedicated to help the ARFOR
ACE receive and parse the large volume of data it would have to process.
commander was dual-hatted as the CJTF commander.
The brigade S2 integrates the ISR effort through the S3 (to include providing tasks to the RSTA squadron) and is supported by the ARFOR
analysis and control element (ACE) or intelligence element in order to provide situational awareness and understanding in the AO.
It will function as part of a corps or under an ARFOR
(Army force) as part of a JTF (joint task force) or CJTF (combined JTF).
In general, the ARFOR
ACEs (analysis and control elements) will provide analytic and intelligence coordination overwatch in general support of the IBCT S2s.
