SMEAC Execution - Concept of Operations a) Scheme of Maneuver - Form of Maneuver 5
1) Assembly Area to Attack Position 2) Attack Position to Assault Position 3) Assault Position to Objective 4) Security
1) Direction of north 2)Present location (grid) 3) Unit objectives (grid terrain feature and designator) 4) Key Navigational features 5) Boundaries outlining your planned area of operation 6) Weather forecast and its potential effect on terrain personnel equipment and mission 7) Astronomical data that is applicable to the mission (BMCT sunrise Sunset EECT
SMEAC Execution - Concept of Operations - a) Scheme of Maneuver Purpose
Using a graphic sketch or terrain model the leader explains his plan to accomplish the units assigned mission
Scheme of maneuver for offensive includes
1) form of maneuver 2) planned distribution of forces - including main effort and supporting effort 3) direction of movement 4) tactical control measures 4) consolidation
Scheme of maneuver for defensive includes
1) defensive technique 2) planned distribution of forces 3) general direction of fires/location of planned engagement areas 4) security plan
SMEAC Execution - Concept of Operations - b) Fire Support Plan 4
1) the priority of fires and when priority shifts within the unit 2) the location description and target designation of preplanned targets that support the scheme of maneuver 3) the location of firing units (if not already covered in friendly forces subparagraph)3) permissive and restrictive control measures on the use of fires 4) allocation of targets (in the offense - priority targets in the defense - final protective fires)
SMEAC Execution - Tasks
1st 2nd 3rd Squad
SMEAC Execution - Coordinating Instructions 12
1) Order of movement and planned formations during movement 2)Consolidation reorganization counterattack plan 3)Movement into the defense (used for deliberate occupation of the defense only) 4)Location/grids for tactical and fire control measures--these control measures should also be depicted on your terrain model/operational graphic. Examples include check points phase lines release points battle positions SP/LP TRPs etc. When briefing tactical control measures point out the location on your terrain model and then give grid coordinates 5)Target precedence--assigned to specific units/weapon systems to provide guidance on what targets to engage when multiple targets are presented 6)Security plan--the plan to provide early warning/protection to the unit to prevent surprise upon enemy contact 7)Engagement and disengagement criteria and instructions 8)Priority of work (used for defensive operations) 9)Reporting requirements 10)Rules of engagement (if applicable) 11)MOPP level 12)Planning and execution time lines

SMEAC Command
1) Location of the higher commander (key leaders) 2) Your location before during and after the battle 3) Succession of command (ie sqd leader 1st fire team leader etc)
