The Battalion S2 (BN S2) section deployed is defined as a battalion intelligence staff. Operations include ground forces visually conducting operations in a infantry battalion at Baghdad, Iraq. Irregular warfare provides a defining amount of visualization on the enemy threat. The tactical level of intelligence will exist on BN S2 battle rhythm, lethal targeting process, system applications and usage, and intelligence assets. This definition shares in a tradition for dominating target development. The BN S2 intelligence superiority is defined by a specific targeting structure for developing the enemy threat.
The BN S2 battle rhythm process is a technical sequence for parallel staff planning. BN S2 intelligence superiority is established by continuous reporting of the battle rhythm. The working groups are reported by platoon leaders, Assistant Battalion S2 (BN AS2), BN S2, Brigade Assistant S2 (BCT AS2), and Fires and Effects Coordination Cell (FECC). The connections are made to working groups for brigade targeting of 4 x BN S2/AS2, BCT AS2, and FECC. Working groups continue on one weekly meeting for target development. Continuous working groups provide targeting structure importance. Thereafter intelligence products connect to continue planning. The connections are made to working groups for battalion targeting of Company Intelligence Support Team Officer (COIST) and BN S2. Working groups continue on three weekly meetings for target development. Those areas of reporting will be marked by current intelligence reports. Robert Clark writes,
Because all participants share knowledge of the target, they are better able to identify gaps in knowledge and understand the important issues surrounding the target. The team-generated view brings the full resources of the team to bear on the target. During U.S. operations in Afghanistan in 2002, intelligence officers used screens similar to Internet chat rooms to share data in an interactive process that in no way resembled the traditional intelligence cycle, and they continued that successful pattern during Operation Iraqi Freedom. (Clark,15)
The BN S2 battle rhythm allows for reporting on targeting developments, warnings and indications, and significant reports. Intelligence products will be briefed to evaluate the enemy. The intelligence maps are technically decisive for current targeting structure. Working group briefings will be made for maps on targeting developments.
The targeting process is decisive for capturing enemy threats. Team process targeting will take effect at a tactical intelligence level model of the Decide, Detect, Deliver, and Assess (D3A). The model of D3A is analytically tactical model of the Find, Fix, Track, Target, Engage, and Assess (F2T2EA). The D3A assures continues information on the targeting process overall for joint targeting, combat training centers, and deployment. Jim Frederick writes,
