As previously mentioned, there are basically six steps in the kill chain--find, fix, track, target, engage, and assess (F2T2EA
But much like D3A, how does F2T2EA
help you prosecute a TST or plan for it in advance?
His objective was to present Eighth Air Force assets to the Strategic Command (STRATCOM) Commander in his new Global Strike role to F2T2EA
, a designated target set in a very short span of time.
find, fix, track, target, engage, and assess kill chain
: Ground forces posturing for a capture/kill mission receive battlespace awareness and real-time ISR from space assets and are commanded and controlled through a common special operations center within an area of responsibility (AOR).
Precision striker sensors to accomplish solo F2T2EA
and combat identification.
The first model describes the weather decision cycle at the operational and tactical levels and is used to illustrate how improvements in data gathering and communication will improve air forces' F2T2EA
cycle and allow for better integration of weather and climate effects information in the Combined Air and Space Operations Center (CAOC).
(8) Fighter/bomber aircrews were initially expected to complete the entire find, fix, track, target, engage, and assess (F2T2EA
) kill chain without external support from command, control, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C2ISR).
In a previous Air and Space Power journal article, I argued for the existence of two distinct portions of the find/fix/track/ target/engage/assess (F2T2EA
) kill chain.
One may find a good doctrinal example of the difference between combat effects and combat-support effects in the dynamic-targeting kill chain of find, fix, track, target, engage, and assess (F2T2EA
The document defines a six-step dynamic-targeting "kill chain" consisting of finding, fixing, tracking, targeting, engaging, and assessing (F2T2EA
This part includes the first high-level doctrinal use of the find-fix-track-target-engage-assess (F2T2EA
or "kill chain") methodology used to prosecute time-sensitive targets at the level of the joint force commander, based on the recently published multiservice tactics, techniques, and procedures manual on such targets.
