1 Multinational Planning Augmentation Team (MPAT)
GOOD MORNING. I AM CDR BOB WOHLSCHLEGEL FROM USCINCPAC REPRESENTING THE MULTINATIONAL PLANNING AUGMENTATION TEAM (MPAT) SECRETARIAT. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE MPAT INITIATIVE TO INCREASE THE CAPABILITY OF MULTINATIONAL FORCE (MNF) OPERATIONAL HEADQUARTERS STAFFS AND PLANNERS. ADDITIONALLY, I WILL PROVIDE AN OVERVIEW OF THE MPAT STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOPS (WHICH WE CALL TEMPEST EXPRESS). WE INVITE ALL NATIONS PARTICIPATING IN MPAT TO HOST AND CO-SPONSOR WITH USCINCPAC MPAT WORKSHOPS. Facilitating the Planning Process

2 Agenda What is MPAT ? Framework Concept Development MPAT Events
- Augmenting the MNF Headquarters - Desired Capability - The MPAT Concept - Goals MPAT Events THIS IS THE AGENDA FOR THIS PRESENTATION. I WILL DISCUSS THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE MPAT INITIATIVE AND CURRENT PLANS FOR CONTINUED MPAT CONCEPT AND SOP DEVELOPMENT. I SOLICIT YOUR QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS. WE FEEL THIS INITIATIVE COULD BE AN IMPORTANT CAPABILITY BUILDER FOR THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION...BUT NEEDS THE BENEFIT OF EVERYONE’S PERSPECTIVE AND INPUT SO THAT THE MPAT CAN CONTINUE TO EVOLVE INTO A PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES THE MOST BENEFIT TO ALL. Collaborative Planning – ODYSSEY

3 What is MPAT ? A cadre of military planners from nations with Asia-Pacific interests capable of rapidly augmenting a multinational force (MNF) headquarters established to plan and execute multinational coalition operations in response to military operations other than war (MOOTW) / small scale contingencies (SSC). THE MPAT INITIATIVE IS BEST SUMMARIZED AS AN EFFORT TO INCREASE MULTINATIONAL FORCE (MNF) AND COALITION TASK FORCE (CTF) OPERATIONAL LEVEL HEADQUARTERS STAFF CAPABILITY, ESPECIALLY IN PLANNING EXPERTISE, TO SUPPORT MULTINATIONAL MILITARY OPERATIONS WITHIN THE REGION. THE GOAL IS TO BUILD A CADRE OF STAFF OFFICERS FROM THROUGHOUT THE REGION WHO CAN BE CALLED UPON, PARTICULARLY DURING AN INITIAL CRISIS RESPONSE, TO DEPLOY TO AND AUGMENT A MULTINATIONAL FORCE HEADQUARTERS STAFF. MPAT PROVIDES THESE PLANNERS PERIODIC OPPORTUNITIES TO DEVELOP COMMON STAFF PLANNING PROCEDURES AND TO HONE THEIR REQUISITE SKILLS AS MULTINATIONAL PLANNING EXPERTS. SIMILAR TO THE POL-MIL PROCESS USED TO REQUEST TROOP CONTRIBUTING NATION SUPPORT, A HOST NATION, A MULTINATIONAL FORCE “LEAD NATION” OR THE UN COULD REQUEST NATIONS TO PROVIDE THEIR MPAT EXPERIENCED PERSONNEL FOR MNF HEADQUARTERS STAFF AUGMENTATION KNOWING THAT THESE OFFICERS, BY VIRTUE OF THIS EXPERIENCE, CAN FACILITATE THE RAPID STANDUP OF THE HEADQUARTERS AND ITS INITIAL PLANNING EFFORTS.

4 MPAT Vision The MPAT program provides periodic opportunities for a small group of military crisis action planners from nations with Asia-Pacific region interest to get together at workshops where they (1) build personal and professional relationships, (2) become familiar with each others’ national planning doctrine / standing operating procedures (SOP) / Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP), and (3) become proficient in forming multinational operational level, CTF HQs and common crisis response planning procedures. IN SUMMARY THIS IS THE MPAT VISION. THE MPAT PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE PERIODIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR A SMALL GROUP OF PLANNERS FROM THROUGHOUT THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION TO GET TOGETHER AT WORKSHOPS WHERE THEY WILL GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER, BECOME FAMILIAR WITH EACHOTHERS DOCTRINE, AND BECOME PROFICIENT IN COMMON CRISIS RESPONSE PLANNING AND MNF HQs PROCEDURES.

5 MPAT Goals Improve Interoperability and Multinational Cooperation
Reduce Crisis Response Time and Increase Planning Effectiveness Strengthen MNF Command & Control, and Communications & Information Systems Procedures Become Familiar With Common Standing Operating Procedures (SOP) for MNF / Coalition Task Force Headquarters Develop MNF Integration SOP to Assist Transition from a JTF to a CTF DURING CRISIS RESPONSE IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE PROCESSES THAT FACILITATE RAPID, EFFICIENT REGIONAL RESPONSE CAPABILITIES. MPAT PROVIDES A MECHANISM THAT CAN HELP ENHANCE REGIONAL INTEROPERABILITY AND COOPERATION. THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS REDUCED CRISIS RESPONSE TIME AND INCREASED CTF HEADQUARTERS EFFECTIVENESS. IMPROVED COMMAND, CONTROL AND COMMUNICATIONS, AS WELL AS FAMILIARIZATION WITH COMMON OPERATING PROCEDURES. THE MPAT PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE PERIODIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR A SMALL GROUP OF PLANNERS TO DEVELOP LASTING RELATIONSHIPS, BECOME FAMILIAR WITH EACH OTHERS DOCTRINE/SOP/TTP, AND BECOME PROFICIENT IN A COMMON SET OF CRISIS RESPONSE STANDING OPERATING PROCEDURES.

6 The MPAT Concept Primary Function
Scaleable to contingency National Contributions Operational Planners Size: Tailored based on mission Primary Function Planning Augmentation for MNF/CTF Staff May include expertise in - Ground - Legal - Air - Log - Sea - Medical - Comms - Eng - Intel - Etc. ALL ASIA-PACIFIC NATIONS WHO DESIRE TO PARTICIPATE ARE INVITED TO IDENTIFY THEIR AREAS OF NATIONAL EXPERTISE. THE INTENT IS FOR MPAT TO INCLUDE SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT (SME) REPRESENTATION IN ALL FUNCTIONAL AREAS OF AN OPERATIONAL LEVEL PLANNING STAFF. INITIALLY WE EXPECT THAT EACH COUNTRY’S MPAT CADRE BE SMALL (3 OR 4). AS THE CONCEPT MATURES, ADDITIONAL SPECIALTIES MAY BE ADDED AS APPROPRIATE. SEVERAL COUNTRIES HAVE APPOINTED AUGMENTATION TEAMS OF THEIR OWN THAT REPETITIVELY TRAIN IN MPAT EVENTS. OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE ELECTED TO ROTATE AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE THROUGH THESE WORKSHOPS IN ORDER TO EXPOSE THE LARGEST NUMBER OF ITS MILITARY PLANNERS TO THE CONCEPT. THE CHOICE IS EACH COUNTRIES TO MAKE. THERE ARE NO IMPLIED OBLIGATIONS THAT ACCOMPANY PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. THE USCINCPAC J38 DJTFAC STAFF CURRENTLY SERVES AS THE MPAT SECRETARIAT. AS SUCH, IT WILL DEVELOP AND EXECUTE, WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF OTHER INTERESTED NATIONS, THE MPAT WORKSHOPS, AND EXERCISE EVENTS. ALL NATIONS ARE INVITED TO VOLUNTEER TO TAKE OVER MPAT SECRETARIAT DUTIES, IT IS A RESPONSIBILITY THAT CAN BE ROTATED AROUND THE REGION TO THOSE NATIONS INTERESTED. MPAT coordinated by MPAT Secretariat

7 Conceptual Framework MISSIONS Multinational Planning for Military Operations Other Than War / Small Scale Contingencies Humanitarian Assistance COMMAND AND CONTROL Operational Procedures Disaster Relief Search & Rescue FORCES THIS IS THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE INITIATIVE. ON THE RIGHT SIDE IS LISTED THE MILITARY OPERATIONS OTHER THAN WAR/SMALL SCALE CONTINGENCIES THAT THE MPAT SCENARIOS WILL FOCUS ON (HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE AND DISASTER RELIEF, SEARCH AND RESCUE, NON-COMBATANT EVACUATION AND A WIDE RANGE OF PEACE OPERATIONS). EVENTS OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT WE MUST BE PREPARED TO QUICKLY POOL OUR RESOURCES TO RESPOND EFFECTIVELY TO THESE SITUATIONS. IN MOST OF THESE SITUATIONS SPEED AND EFFICIENCY ARE CRITICAL TO SUCCESSFUL MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT. WE BELIEVE THERE ARE TWO AREAS THAT WE CAN AND SHOULD BE WORKING ON TOGETHER TODAY. FIRST, AT THE OPERATIONAL MULTINATIONAL FORCE HEADQUARTERS LEVEL, WE SEE A NEED TO DEVELOP A COMMON SET OF COMMAND AND CONTROL STANDING OPERATING PROCEDURES UNDERSTOOD BY ALL OF OUR STAFF PERSONNEL AND FORCES THAT ARE LIKELY TO RESPOND TO A CRISIS. MPAT IS LEADING THE EFFORT TO DEVELOP MNF SOP AT THE TACTICAL, OR UNIT LEVEL, WE ALSO REQUIRE COMMON PROCEDURES TO ENSURE OUR FORCES CAN OPERATE EFFECTIVELY WITH EACH OTHER. THESE TACTICAL LEVEL PROVCEDURES ARE BEING DEVELOPED BY ORGANIZATIONS, SUCH AS THE UNITED NATIONS AS WELL AS BY COUNTRIES WITH MULTINATIONAL TRAINING CENTERS. Non-Combatant Evacuation Tactical Procedures Peace Operations

8 Desired Capability Reduce Time / Increase Effectiveness
CTF TRANSITION EXECUTE EXECUTE Effectiveness DEPLOY Reduce Time / Increase Effectiveness DEPLOY PLAN THIS IS A GRAPHIC REPRESENTATION OF THE DESIRED RESULT OF INCREASING MNF/CTF SPEED OF RESPONSE AND EFFECTIVENESS. THE VERTICAL AXIS REPRESENTS INCREASING EFFECTIVENESS AND THE HORIZONTAL AXIS REPRESENTS TIME. THE YELLOW LINE REPRESENTS THE RAMP-UP OF A MULTINATIONAL FORCE HEADQUARTERS AS IT IS DONE WITH TODAY’S ADHOC PROCESS. THE RED LINE REPRESENTS A RAMP-UP PROCESS WHICH IS FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENT DUE TO THE EXISTANCE OF A TRAINED AND READY CORE STAFF. MPAT ACHIEVES THESE IMPROVEMENTS IN SPEED AND EFFECTIVENESS BY ROUTINELY BRINGING TOGETHER A SMALL GROUP OF PLANNERS FROM THROUGHOUT THE REGION SO THEY GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER AND BECOME PROFICIENT IN COMMON CRISIS RESPONSE PLANNING PROCEDURES. ESTABLISH CTF PLAN Improvement - X days X days Y days Time Improved speed of response through effective planning

9 Augmenting the MNF HQ Lead Nation Nation 1 Nation 4 MNF/CTF HQ
Multinational Nation 5 Core Planning Staff THIS DIAGRAM ILLUSTRATES HOW A MULTINATIONAL FORCE HEADQUARTERS IS USUALLY FORMED. A LEAD NATION, TYPICALLY THAT NATION PROVIDING THE PREPONDERANCE OF FORCES FOR THE RESPONSE, SERVES AS THE NUCLEUS OF THE HEAQUARTERS STAFF. THE REMAINDER OF THE STAFF IS FORMED USING AUGMENTATION PROVIDED BY ALL THE OTHER PARTICIPATING NATIONS. BRINGING TOGETHER SUCH A DIVERSE GROUP OF MILITARY PROFESSIONALS FOR THE FIRST TIME TO PLAN AND EXECUTE MILITARY OPERATIONS ON RELATIVELY SHORT NOTICE IS THE OBVIOUS CHALLENGE. WE BELIEVE; HOWEVER, THAT A SMALL CORE GROUP OF PLANNERS FROM EACH COUNTRY LIKELY TO AUGMENT SUCH A HEADQUARTERS STAFF FOR A MULTINATIONAL MILITARY RESPONSE CAN BE PRE-IDENTIFIED AND CAN BECOME FAMILIAR WITH A COMMON SET OF PLANNING PROCEDURES THEREBY FACILITATING MORE RAPID FORMATION OF THE HEADQUARTERS WHEN AN ACTUAL CONTINGENCY ARISES. WE BELIEVE PLANNERS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED SEVERAL MPAT WORKSHOPS WOULD BE A VALUABLE SOURCE OF PLANNER AUGMENTATION FOR CTF ACTIVATION AND CONDUCTING INTIAL PLANNING AT A MULTINATIONAL FORCE OPERATIONAL LEVEL HEADQUARTERS.

MPAT PLANNERS, JUST LIKE THEY MAY FOR A REAL CRISIS, WILL AUGMENT AND FULLY INTEGRATE INTO THE CTF HQ STAFF AND WORK WITH THE STAFF AND FOR THE CTF COMMANDER. WE DISCUSS THE CHALLENGES INHERENT IN FORMING A MULTINATIONAL FORCE/CTF HQ STAFF. CHALLENGES INCLUDE DIFFERENCES IN COMMUNICATIONS, TERMINOLOGY, NATIONAL INTERESTS, CULTURAL DYNAMICS, AND BASIC DIFFERENCES IN OUR NATIONS STAFF INFRASTRUCTURE, TECHNIQUES AND PROCEDURES. CTF AUGMENTATION BY MPAT CAN PROVIDE TRAINED MANPOWER AND EXPERTISE TO RAPIDLY FORM AND MAKE THAT HEADQUARTERS AN EFFECTIVE MULTINATIONAL COALITION OR COALITION / COMBINED HQ STAFF.

11 MPAT Venues TEMPEST EXPRESS (TE) HQ Staff Planning Workshop Scenario driven planning event that begins with a lead nation warning order and culminates in a recommended Course of Action for the MNFC approval Host country provides core MNF staff for MPAT planners to augment Venue for introducing new C2 and collaborative planning technologies MPAT Concept & SOP Development Workshop (CDW) Identify/develop common standing operating procedures for MNF/CTF HQs Venue for identifying MNF C2 requirements and evaluating possible solutions Seek consensus among participating countries Design future TEMPEST EXPRESS workshops Selected MPAT Invited To Participate In Non-MPAT events TEAM CHALLENGE Exercise – Crisis Action Planning (CAP) Phase VI execution opportunity Invitation from other nation’s for MPAT to participate or observe some of their exercises, seminars, wargames, etc. THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF MPAT EVENTS. THE TEMPEST EXPRESS HQ STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOP AND THE CONCEPT & SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE, THE MPAT WILL CONTINUE TO CONDUCT TWO TEMPEST EXPRESS STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOPS, AND AT LEAST ONE MPAT CONCEPT & SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS PER YEAR. IN ADDITION, COORDINATORS OF OTHER EVENTS, FROM THE US AND OTHER NATIONS, MAY INVITE MPAT PLANNERS TO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR EVENTS SUCH AS TEAM CHALLENGE, OTHER EXERCISES, SEMINARS, WARGAMES, ETC. IF AUSTRALIA HAS AN EVENT OR EXERCISE THAT IT WOULD LIKE TO INVITE SOME MPAT TO PARTICIPATE IN, WE CAN HELP YOU COORDINATE THAT. THE TEMPEST EXPRESS IS A CRISIS ACTION PLANNING EVENT DRIVEN BY A SCENARIO THAT, USING A COMMON SET OF PROCEDURES, LEADS TO A RECOMMENDED COURSE OF ACTION FOR THE MNF COMMANDER. THE HOST COUNTRY PROVIDES THE CORE MNF STAFF WHICH THE MPAT AUGMENTS. THIS YEAR WE WILL DO MPAT CONCEPT AND MNF SOP DEVELOPMENT DURING THE TWO DAYS PRIOR TO EACH OF OUR TWO TEMPEST EXPRESS WORKSHOPS. MAJOR MPAT PROJECT THIS YEAR IS WRITING THE MNF SOP. MPAT STARTED THIS EFFORT AT THE MPAT CONCEPT & SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP (CDW-5) IN HAWAII LAST JULY WHERE 24 NATIONS PARTICIPATED. WE HAVE HAD TWO DEDICATED MNFSOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS SINCE, THE NEXT ONE IS IN JUNE IN HAWAII. IN THESE WORKSHOPS PARTICIPATING NATIONS SEEK CONSENSUS ON A COMMON SET OF PLANNING AND CTF HQS PROCEDURES AT THE OPERATIONAL LEVEL. YOU CAN LOOK AT THE DRAFT MNF SOP ON THE MPAT WEB PAGE

THE FIRST IS TO PIONEER AND GAIN CONSENSUS FOR THE ‘WAY AHEAD’ FOR MPAT. THIS WORKSHOP PROVIDES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS TO DECIDE THE FUTURE SCENARIOS AND EVENTS FOR MPAT. THIS YEAR AND NEXT YEAR, WE PLAN TO CONDUCT A MPAT CONCEPT AND MULTINATIONAL FORCE SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP FOR TWO DAYS JUST PRIOR TO THE TEMPEST EXPRESS WORKSHOPS. THE SECOND GOAL FOR OUR CDWs IS TO CONTINUE TO WORK ON THE MNF SOP. IN THESE PARTICULAR WORKSHOPS, THIS MEANS VALIDATING THE WORK THAT HAS BEEN DONE AND PROVIDING A BROAD AZIMUTH CHECK ON THE MNF SOP DEVELOPMENT. WE ALSO PLAN TO CONDUCT TWO DEDICATED MNF SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS IN NEPAL HAS OFFERED TO HOST AND CO-SPONSOR THE MNF SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP IN MARCH 2003 AND THE JUNE’03 WORKSHOP WILL IN HAWAII.

14 Where Are We Going? (Way-ahead)
Two MPAT TEMPEST EXPRESS Staff Planning Workshops each fiscal year (FY) FY : JAN and JUL/AUG At least one MPAT and/or MNF SOP Concept Development Workshop (CDW) each fiscal year Plan to schedule CDWs in conjunction with TE workshops Support MNF SOP Development Efforts/Workshops Support Common Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP) Development Efforts LOOKING TO THE FUTURE, THE MPAT WILL CONTINUE TO CONDUCT TWO TEMPEST EXPRESS STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOPS, AND ONE OR TWO MPAT CONCEPT & SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS PER YEAR. THE DESIRED TIMEFRAMES FOR THESE EVENTS ARE SHOWN. WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HOST AND CO-SPONSOR SOME OF THESE EVENTS WITHIN THE REGION. EACH TIME THE MPAT MEETS, A PRIMARY OBJECTIVE WILL BE THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMON STANDING OPERATING PROCEDURES (SOP) AND SUPPORT FOR OTHER ORGANIZATIONS AND COUNTRIES IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMON TACTICS, TECHNIQUES, AND PROCEDURES (TTP).

20 Building Relationships and Understanding
WHILE IT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO QUANTIFY THE DEGREE OF COMMRADERIE MPAT EVENTS PROMOTE, IT IS CLEAR THAT THERE IS SOME EXCELLENT TEAM BUILDING BEING ACCOMPLISHED. HOST COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN MOST GRACIOUS IN ENSURING THAT SUFFICIENT ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED THAT ALLOWS FOR PERSONAL AS WELL AS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN MULTINATIONAL ACTIVITIES.

21 Internet Data/Audio Only
Distributed Information Sharing and Collaborative Planning Software (ODYSSEY) Connect to those nations that desire to participate distributively- TBD Internet Data/Audio Only Control SERVER CCTF NOTE THAT THESE STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOPS WILL ALSO PROVIDE MPAT PERSONNEL AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN AND PRACTICE DISTRIBUTED INFORMATION SHARING AND PLANNING COLLABORATION TOOLS. A LOCAL AREA NETWORK WILL PROVIDE CONNECTIVEITY BETWEEN GROUPS PARTICIPATING IN THE TEMPEST EXPRESS IN THE HOTEL. A WIDE AREA NETWORK WILL PROVIDE INTERESTED COUNTRIES A REACHBACK CAPABILITY AND THE CAPABILITY FOR THESE COUNTRIES TO MONITOR ONLINE REAL TIME THE PROGRESS OF THE WORKSHOP. COA TM 1 COA TM 2 COA TM 3 Data/Audio/Video Hotel - Seoul

22 SCREEN CAPTURE OF ODYSSEY
THE ODYSSEY SOFTWARE IS QUITE SIMPLE AND INTUITIVE FROM BOTH A SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR AS WELL AS FROM A USER PERSPECTIVE. AS YOU CAN SEE, ANYONE CAN MONITOR NUMEROUS ROOMS IN THE HEADQUARTERS WITH JUST A CLICK OF THE COMPUTER MOUSE AND CAN TRANSFER INFORMATION AND COORDINATE WITH OTHER STAFF MEMBERS WITHOUT LEAVING HIS OWN WORKSPACE. VOICE, VTC AND WHITEBOARD CAPABILITIES ARE ALL INTEGRATED TOOLS FOR THE STAFF OFFICER TO USE. THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE WHICH MPAT IS ATTEMPTING TO ADDRESS IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES FOR USING THIS SOFTWARE IN A LARGE STAFF ENVIRONMENT OVER A WIDE AREA NETWORK. SINCE THIS IS FREEWARE, MANY MPAT PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES HAVE BEGUN TO TEST AND EVALUATE THIS SOFTWARE FOR THEIR OWN INTERNAL USE AS WELL.

23 The MPAT Web Page (WWW.MPAT.ORG)
THIS IS THE MPAT HOMEPAGE ON THE ASIA PACIFIC AREA NETWORK (APAN) ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE INTERNET. IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING A MECHANISM FOR DAY-TO-DAY INFORMATION SHARING, IT HAS BEEN SET UP AS A TOOL FOR MPAT ATTENDEES TO EFFICIENTLY COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER VIA , AND TO COLLABORATE WITH EACH OTHER VIA A BULLETIN BOARD UTILITY. EVERYTHING MPAT DOES OR IS GOING TO DO IS POSTED ON THIS PAGE. WE ALSO ENCOURAGE OUR MPAT MEMBERS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE BODY OF PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE ALSO BEING POSTED ON THIS WEB SITE. IN THE FUTURE WE WILL BE PLACING ADVANCED DISTRIBUTED LEARNING PRODUCTS HERE AS WELL TO HELP OUR MPAT PARTICIPANTS PREPARE FOR UPCOMING MPAT EVENTS SO THAT THE ACTUAL TIME SPENT AT THE EVENT DOING LECTURES CAN BE REDUCED ALLOWING MORE TIME IN DISCUSSIONS AND PLANS DEVELOPMENT..

24 MPAT End-state A cadre of military planners is established from nations with Asia-Pacific interests who can be requested to augment the standup of a Multinational Force (MNF) Headquarters within the region. The ultimate goal being reduced crisis response time and increased planning effectiveness. THIS IS THE AGREED-UPON MPAT END-STATE: MPAT CADRE PROVIDES THE ASIA PACIFIC REGION A CADRE OR POOL OF PLANNERS THAT COULD BE REQUESTED TO JOIN AND AUGMENT A CTF HEADQUARTERS. THE REQUEST WOULD BE THROUGH A POLITICAL-MILITARY PROCESS SIMILAR TO THAT WHICH IS USED TO REQUEST SUPPORT FOR A MNF OPERATION. IN THE FUTURE, A HOST NATION, A MULTINATIONAL FORCE LEAD NATION OR THE UN COULD REQUEST SOME OF THESE PLANNERS TO AUGMENT A CTF HEADQUARTERS STAFF. “PREPAREDNESS” AT THE OPERATIONAL PLANNING LEVEL IS AT THE HEART OF THE MPAT INITIATIVE.
