Manpack SIDS Concept of Employment Manpack SIDS is a self-contained system comprised of three outstations, a base station, digital cameras, and other specialized devices; communications support must come from other resources. , high and very high frequency [HF and VHF] single-channel radios and ultra high frequency satellite radios). supported unit’s main command echelon for receipt, manipulation, annotation, and subsequent retransmission of imagery collected by the outstation teams. Depending upon the tasked IRs and the situation, the base station will then disseminate acquired imagery and related information to the P&A cell within the IOC (force reconnaissance team operations), to the division’s combat intelligence center for follow-on intelligence analysis, production, and dissemination (division reconnaissance battalion operations) or directly to pertinent unit(s) C2 centers.

The commander exercises C2 via the ACE G-3/S-3 and the Marine air command and control system (see MCWP 3-25, Control of Aircraft and Missiles). ) are planned, coordinated, and controlled by the ACE G-3/S-3 via the tactical air command center (TACC). Intelligence missions, however, are in accordance with the intelligence and reconnaissance mission requirements designated by the MEF or supported unit commander, requiring close coordination between the intel bn’s IOC and the MAW’s TACC. To assist with UAV mission planning and execution, VMU will generally provide a task-organized team to the IOC, which will typically operate from within the SARC.

The MEF commander will usually exercise C2 over the intel bn elements, to include the JSTARS CGS, via the MAGTF intelligence officer. The intel bn commander, as the ISC, performs this function under the staff cognizance of the AC/S G-2. This allows for the centralized direction and effective integration of JSTARS operations with other MAGTF IMINT operations and the broader all-source intelligence concept of operations. Additionally, METT-T factors may require that E-8C data be provided to other elements of the MEF.
