1 MPAT TEMPEST EXPRESS 24 (TE-24) Initial Planning Workshop
Good Day. My name is_________________ and I will be giving a brief overview on the MPAT program and TE-24 7 November 2013

2 Agenda MPAT Overview TE-24 IPC Overview and Discussions

3 What is MPAT? A cadre of military planners ...
From nations with Asia-Pacific interests Capable of rapidly augmenting a multinational force (MNF) headquarters (HQ) Established to plan and execute coalition operations In response to military operations other than war (MOOTW) / small scale contingencies (SSC) Secretariat based at USPACOM The climate of cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region is very conducive to multilateral dialogue and the development of effective strategic, operational, and tactical planning and execution skills to meet on-going and emergent security challenges. Many of the necessary planning skills and personal relationships used to form effective multilateral partnerships can be found within the Multinational Planning Augmentation Team (MPAT) program. The MPAT is made up of a cadre of experienced military planners, capable of rapidly augmenting a multinational force headquarters (MNF HQ), to plan and execute coalition military operations primarily at the lower end of the spectrum of conflict. The primary focus of MPAT is to improve multinational interoperability at the operational level of command.

4 A Multinational Program
Consists of cadre of MNF planners from the region: Skilled in common crisis action planning procedures (MNF SOP) Meets twice annually to: Share information & develop procedures (MNF SOP) Practice CTF HQ activation, formation, & planning processes Administers the MNF SOP for international use Includes interested nations, International Organizations (IOs), Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), & United Nations (UN) agencies Includes Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with skills tailored for each event MPAT is a rapidly maturing multinational program established in early MPAT was established to develop procedures to facilitate the rapid and effective establishment and/or augmentation of multinational coalition task force headquarters (CTF HQ). MPAT is not a program with formal participatory agreements. The key factor in program success to date has been the informal ad hoc nature of the program. Without memorandums of agreement, terms of reference, or other more formal arrangements, the program has been able to share information and all participants have been able to jointly develop concepts and procedures without formal policy constraints – a key inhibitor to multinational interoperability when working with other nations. The MPAT program includes military planners from all interested nations and also incorporates expertise from International & Non-governmental Organizations and the UN. The MPAT program belongs to all interested nations.

5 MPAT Objectives & Methods
Improve Speed of Multinational Crisis Response Improve Multinational Force Interoperability Increase CTF / MNF Mission Effectiveness Unity of Effort Develop and become familiar with common Standing Operating Procedures (SOP) for MNF HQ Strengthen & Practice Common Crisis Action Planning Procedures Driven by Asia-Pacific regional priorities The operational objectives of the MPAT program are: Increase speed of initial crisis response by a multinational force in the Asia-Pacific region. Improve the interoperability of coalition or combined forces, or multinational operations where nations work in parallel with each other. Improve overall Multinational Task Force Headquarters mission effectiveness. The two primary methods by which MPAT supports these objectives are by: Developing a cadre a skilled multinational military planners Developing a common set of procedures This program will ultimately save lives as we improve the multinational capability to rapidly and efficiently respond to a disaster, humanitarian crisis, or complex contingency.

6 MPAT Participating Nations
Australia Bangladesh Brunei Cambodia Canada East Timor France Fiji Germany India Indonesia Italy Japan Korea Malaysia Maldives Mongolia Nepal New Zealand Papua New Guinea Philippines Singapore Solomon Islands Sri Lanka Thailand Tonga Tuvalu United Kingdom United States Vanuatu Vietnam (31 total countries) This is a list of current nations participating in the MPAT Program. Most are from the Asia & Pacific regions. The nations outside the region (Canada, France, Germany, Italy & the UK) participate in MPAT because they are also members (along with Australia & the US) in a multinational interoperability program called the Multinational Interoperability Council (MIC) which seeks to improve military interoperability at the strategic & policy level. By including MIC nations in MPAT, we help to ensure that interoperability at the strategic/policy level is being done in concert with interoperability efforts at the operational/planner level, and vice versa.

7 MNF SOP - Operational Focus
MPAT - MNF SOP Missions Major Conflict (War) Large scale offensive & defensive combat operations MNF SOP - Operational Focus Hostilities will occur Small Scale Contingency Peace Enforcement Combating Terrorism Hostilities may occur Counterinsurgency Protection of Shipping Counterdrug Ops Counterterrorism Disarmament, Demobilization & Reintegration Anti-Piracy Consequence Management MOOTW Hostilities unlikely, but possible Peacekeeping Ops Noncombatant Evacuation Operations Antiterrorism Show of Force Disaster Relief Humanitarian Assistance Freedom of Navigation Domestic Support Personnel Recovery Ops CBRN-TIM MOOTW (Mil Ops Other Than War)

THE TEMPEST EXPRESS HQ STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOP AND SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP. MPAT WILL CONTINUE TO CONDUCT TWO TEMPEST EXPRESS STAFF PLANNING WORKSHOPS, AND AT LEAST ONE MNF SOP DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP 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 EXERCISES, SEMINARS, & WARGAMES, ETC.
