Several days prior to a RAS event, the customer and CLF asset will usually discuss rendezvous time, location and scheme of maneuver prior to a formal customer RASREQ and subsequent CLF - issued OPTASK
An example would be "KHK response to UMS COW-011" or "receipt confirmation UMS RGN-015." This information may be too lengthy to include in the OPTASK
supplement, but should be put in place by MATCONOFF prior to execution of the exercise.
The guard ship relationships should be codified in the OPTASK COMMS to ensure continuous C2 is achieved.
Annex C to the operational order and the OPTASK for knowledge and information management must account for these variations.
To the maximum extent possible, if forced to use multiple portals for "need to know" issues, organizations should try to link features and functions from one to the other, but keep one authoritative repository for specific information and ensure those business rules are codified in the OPTASK
When a strike group is assigned as the lead for more than one task force, it will normally produce a separate OPTASK IM and OPTASK Chat for each task force.
The KM should work with key stakeholders and higher authority to ensure that processes articulated in the OPTASK IM and OPTASK Chat are relevant, executable and meet mission requirements.
The Library tab includes folders that expand with information regarding Navy general reference categories and doctrine and tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) related to intelligence; operations; logistics; planning; command and control; fleet exercises; TACMEMOS (tactical memos); tactical bulletins; Naval Doctrine Publications (NDPS); Navy Wide OPTASKS
(operational tasks); mission area bookshelves; allied, multinational and joint doctrine, the Universal Naval Task List; Concepts of Operations (CONOPS); U.S.
By establishing policy through IM operation tasks (OPTASKs
) and by identifying timesaving techniques, the KMO can make a near-term and positive impact on strike group operations.
