Appendix
USMC URBAN GROUND RECONNAISSANCE
SHORTFALLS

The following are the current Marine Corps urban ground reconnaissance shortfalls as listed in Chapter Two. They appear below as stand-alone elements without the explanatory material that accompanies them in the body of the report.


DOCTRINE

General

Formal, written urban combat reconnaissance doctrine is essentially nonexistent.

Intelligence collection in densely populated areas is more reliant on human intelligence (HUMINT) than is normally the case in other contingencies. Yet there is little guidance regarding how Marine commands should integrate this greater reliance on HUMINT into their collection and analyses processes.

Savvy employment of urban target systems analysis and urban intelligence preparation of the battlefield can enhance the value drawn from such HUMINT.

A need exists to further investigate the possibility that the complexity of urban areas may impose greater responsibility on Marine teams to provide analysis versus only reporting what is seen using the Size, Activity, Location, Unit, Time, and Equipment (SALUTE) report.

It is possible that urban reconnaissance teams must be better armed.
