The Reserve Component Support and Integration (RCSI) Plan (RCSIP) is the operational element of the INSCOM initiative to engage RC assets to support the echelons above corps MI force. The plan flows real-world missions to the RC MI units and the individual mobilization augmentees (IMA), fosters habitual RC-Active Component (AC) relationships, and establishes the automation connectivity so critical to RC training and our contributory support of the AC. Headquarters, INSCOM hosts an annual RCSI workshop of AC and RC elements that has superseded the former IMA conference. The second workshop, held in February 1997, focused on establishing the AC-RC ties upon which all else depends.

RC MI Participation In OJE
To date more than 750 RC MI personnel have mobilized in support of Operation Joint Endeavor (OJE). Nearly all of the USAR's MI units and the Army National Guard's 300th MI Brigade (Linguist) have participated in the 270-day rotations. Indeed, the reservoir of accessible qualified soldiers in some military occupational specialties, such as 96B (Intelligence Analyst), have been nearly exhausted. The RC MI Force Design Update being implemented this fiscal year has anticipated the OJE requirement for discrete functional modular teams that answer to specific AC requests for augmentation.
The enduring lessons from each rotation mandate both a sustained AC-RC peacetime relationship and detailed predeployment coordination. These steps insure a maximum of utility from the mobilized RC force. One step has already been taken. The Army Reserve Intelligence Support Centers (ARISC) have been enlisted into the effort to prepare the mobilizing RC MI soldiers. By their good efforts, the RC soldiers report prepared to work the designated systems. POC: Ms. Linda Hein, USARC, (404) 629-7917 and E-mail [email protected]
RC 98GZZ Training Concept
The USAIC&FH has recommended a training strategy to address the RC's requirement to qualify its 98G (Voice Interceptor) soldiers in low-density languages. Training will occur by phase, depending on the RC soldiers' assigned unit. Details regarding phasing follow in Figure 1. The POC is Major Tom Bergfeld, USAIC&FH Dir. of Operations, Training, and Doctrine at (520) 533-2085, 821-2085, and via E-mail [email protected] chuca-emh1.army.mil.
