Doctrine Corner: the challenges of Homeland Defense.

Homeland Defense (HLD) efforts have significantly affected the role of the Armed Forces and the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and Fort Huachuca (USAIC&FH), Arizona. Fort Huachuca's Concepts and Doctrine Divisions are influencing policy with the development of intelligence support to installation commanders' antiterrorism/force protection (AT/FP) doctrine. The Army Military Intelligence (MI) Corps is a crucial component in how the Army will develop and manage information to support the Department of Homeland Security.

This article builds upon the JulySeptember2002 MIPB Doctrine Corner column on page 52. USAIC&FH has developed a Special Text (ST) document to support the commander and soldiers of units conducting AT/ FP support operations. STs will facilitate the dissemination of documents that will provide for a single point of reference consolidating and cross-referencing doctrine and information for individuals supporting HLD. Access for these documents will soon be available through the Intelligence Center homepage.

ST 2-91.2, Intelligence Support to Installation Commander's Antiterrorism Program and Force Protection (AT/FP), is a living manual. We will periodically revise it as necessary based on comments from the field or when other significant changes occur.

ST 2-91.2 establishes the initial doctrinal foundation and describes tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) used to produce all-source intelligence support to AT/FP. It focuses on intelligence production at the installation level and amplifies the doctrine contained in other AT/FP publications.

This ST comprises four chapters and ten appendixes.

* The first chapter covers the introduction and overview of FP.

* Chapter 2, Commander and Staff Responsibilities and Duties, is a consolidation of the HLD and Department of Defense guidance provided to Department of the Army for the architecture, organization, and the expectations of the installation commander and staff for AT/FP. This chapter also provides direction and recommendations for a successful intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) cell and communications architecture.

* Chapter 3, Intelligence Support to AT/FP Operations, reinforces AT/F P concepts and focuses the Ml analyst on analytical and complementary methodologies as performance tasks.

* Chapter 4, Antiterrorism/Force Protection Targeting Process, provides the commander and staff with the process an adversary might use for targeting an installation. They can apply this assessment to evaluate the vulnerability of the installation and to provide analytical direction in support of HLD.

* The appendixes provide both website addresses for additional information and samples and examples for the analyst.

Doctrine Division will continue to update ST 2-91.2 as resources and manpower are available. We will issue related materials as needed (see
