Abstract : In many cases Special Operations Forces (SOF) are the first to arrive in the area of Military Operations Other Than War (MOOTW). Characteristically joint in nature and featuring strategic, operational and tactical considerations a MOOTW can be politically sensitive and require that the theater Commander-in-Chief (CINC) and the National Command Authority (NCA) be kept well-informed. Therfore, it is critical that the Joint Special operations Task Force (JSOTF) conducting a MOOTW have reliable communications from the tactical through the strategic level. This paper identifies authoritative guidance and resources avilsole, develops practical tenets, and applies operational art to assist the reader in understanding and planning reliable JSOTF communications in support of MOOTW.
