Flashcards in ISR Phase Test Deck (66):
The three C's of tactical communication?
Clear, Concise, Correct
The standard brief we pass the JTAC?
used to simplify and shorten communication
Is a FISL an ACM?
Lack of video datalink
secure encrypted communication
Two ways of authenticating non-secure communication
Who is contacted for airspace request when transiting from one AS to another?
Ground-units use VDL for...
Situational Awareness, mission planning + execution
facilitates efficient use of Airspace
Do we use the tracker display when coordinating and requesting air space?
Which MTS camera is able to see the LTM spot?
What is the difference between laser light and visible light?
Laser light is monochromatic
How does the LRD calculate target slant range information?
The time elapse between the outgoing pule and its returned reflection is proportional to the distance to the target
What are the LTM modes of fire rate?
-Fast, 3 times per second
Slow, 1 every 2 seconds
T or F: If a/c goes lost link the LRD/LTM/SMS is automatically selected off
T or F: PRF laser code must start with 1 (1111-1888) excluding 0's and 9's
LRD is used for
T or F: AGM-114 laser code can bet set by the pilot
When the laser beam goes inside a structure and does not reflect back (missile cannot see the laser)
T or F: If a fighter checks in with Laser Tracker Capable, that means they can only see the LRD
True, fighters usually cannot see the LTM
Which is the only laser to provide ranging data?
Laser Rangefinder Designator (LRD)
Terminal guidance problem when the laser spot moves away from the seeker.
T or F: You cannot conduct an LSD with an LTM
True it has to be an LRD
What the Air force says about ISR...
Global integrated ISR is an operation in and of itself
What Joint Community says about ISR...
ISR is conducted in support of current and future operations
Which document can include rules of engagement and combat identification criteria? Theater Specific
What function does the ISRD perform for the JFACC?
Provides predictive and actionable intelligence and direction of ISR operations
Which intelligence discipline can synthesize intelligence and data into conceptualized geographic spatial content providing commanders key operational intelligence
What intelligence process alerts decision-makers at all echelons to potential emerging situations and threats?
IPOE (Intelligence Preparation of the Operational Environment)
Detailed document detailing tasking of intel collections with SPECIFIC guidance for tasked ISR assets. Outlines the entire JFACC ISR plan.
Senior C2 Element of TACS
AOC (Air Operations Center)
What does it mean to have a probable target?
Greater that 50% level of confidence
What is the role of DGS?
analyzes the FMV feed real-time and provides intel products to the SU and crew
How does cross-cueing help the RPA mission?
By using multiple sensors from different platform, RPA missions can gain better fidelity on their targets.
What center provides the link between the SOC and the AOC?
WOC (Wing operation center)
crew level support position that provides real-time support?
entity analyzing your feed providing real-time feedback/intel
An activity that synchronizes and integrates
5 basic functions performed by AOC's
intel position integral part of RPA mission. providing fusion, analysis, fusion, dissemination
How can the DGS support the crew?
THEY DO= Analyzing full motion feed to provide intel products
They do not do quality control product reports
How to enable/disable KU
RL select anytime you are gaining/losing =
RL select for losing = Shared
T or F: For gaining, crew must unmute signal and engage KU
How to access GCS Configuration Menu
Left click compass row > CTRL-ALT_G
T or F: You have to change your initial lost link heading after gaining control of the aircraft
Which checklist confirms the GCS is ready to accept the aircraft?
During gaining handover you must confirm cleared _____
For losing handover, Pilot has to setup OPS mission with lost link _____
Lost Link OK
Role of the MCE during losing handover operations
not turn off spma
not prepare aircraft for mission elements
not prepare descending landing checklist
**set aircraft datalinks for another element to take control**
P, SO =
Both roles conduct action
Links are muted via what organization
MCE, in order to gain control of the aircraft we need to call comm, they will unmute the command link, our next step is to ENABLE the ______ Link
How can you provide situational awareness for a convoy escort?
What are we looking for during a Pre-Raid?
Scan Ingress, Egress routes for friendly/enemy forces. Animals.
During an ISR brief what information do you pass?
THEY DONT CARE: ops limits, MTS graphics
THEY DO care about target specific information
Where/When would you report your lost link routing?
During your check-in
What do you expect to receive during your situation update?
TFATCHER or TFACCOR (lookup and edit these)
What is the reason we do a whisper pass?
reducing audible sound and increasing image quality
Where do you find modes/codes squawk?
It is Not on the COMM CARD
It comes from the ATO
I need you to contact badger 34 on *RED 3* (What source document do you find this frequency information)
On the SPINS
outlines briefing responsibilities and requirements
AFI 11-2 MQ 1&9 Vol3 Attachment 2
