Abstract : This publication describes the joint targeting process and provides tactics, techniques, and procedures for targeting surface (land or sea) time-critical targets (TCTs). It describes specific procedures for joint force components in the coordination, deconfliction, and synchronization of rapid targeting and attacks in a joint environment. Though not prescriptive, this publication recommends procedures when multiple components have the capability to locate, identify, track, attack, and evaluate targets in overlapping areas of responsibility. The overall objective of this publication is to provide the joint force commander (JFC) and staff tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) to destroy surface TCTs and coordinate, deconflict, and synchronize the entire joint effort. By doing so, the JFC can minimize duplication of effort and the potential for fratricide while accomplishing the objective of rapid response.
