Abstract : The purpose of CCF 25 is to deny enemy information about friendly dispositions, plans, intentions, and operations by identifying, controlling, and protecting indicators associated with planning and conducting military operations. The outcomes include: (1) TF identifies all threats to its freedom of action. (2) TF reduces its vulnerability to significant hostile acts, influence, and surprise during TF preparations for and execution of a mission using at least five tasks: (a) TF takes advantage of cover, concealment, camouflage, noise and light discipline. (b) TF counter-reconnaissance operations deny enemy direct observation of TF, activities, through use of smoke and obscurants, until it is too late for the enemy to effectively react. (c) Enemy is unable to intercept and exploit TF communications. (d) Enemy is unable to locate TF C2 nodes and identify TF intentions through intercept and analysis of TF electronic emissions. (e) TF physical security measures detect the enemy in time to be effective.
