Abstract : The DOCC analysis was conducted at the request of the Depth and Simultaneous Attack Battlefield Laboratory (D&SA BL) to support the need/benefit of a proposed deep operations coordination cell (DOCC). With advances in U.S. military target acquisition capabilities and weapon delivery systems, there exists a critical requirement to improve the planning and execution of deep operations command and control (C2) procedures. Centralization of deep operations procedures into a single corps staff element and automating many of the time-consuming tasks seemed to be a way to improve deep operations. Midway through the study, it was learned that selected corps commanders have established deep operations cells under the supervision of their corps artillery commanders. V Corps is developing the Automated Deep Operations Coordination System (ADCCS) to provide horizontal integration of target processing. The results of this study confirmed that centralization of deep operations C2 procedures in the corps fire support cell, along with automation support of ADOCS, does improve C2 processing of deep operations.
