Joint Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Joint Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace [open pdf - 5MB]
This publication establishes doctrinal guidance and joint tactics, techniques, and procedures (JTTP) for use by joint intelligence organizations in preparing joint intelligence preparation of the battlespace (JIPB) products. The focus is on the JIPB process, in which analyses of the battlespace environment and adversary are combined in order to identify and analyze possible adversary courses of action (COAs). It describes how adversary and friendly COAs are evaluated and wargamed to support the joint force commander's (JFC's) decision making process. This publication is geared primarily towards preparatory intelligence analysis for operational level force-on-force confrontations. It also addresses how the JIPB process can be tailored to specific joint force planning activities and military operations other than war.
