Field Manual (FM) 100-12, Army Theater Missile Defense Operations, establishes the Armyís comprehensive doctrine to guide actions throughout the range of theater missile defense (TMD) operations. It explains the Armyís contribution to joint TMD and addresses the elements necessary to insure maximum effectiveness and integration of TMD into the Joint Force Commanderís (JFCís) overall concept of the operation and campaign objectives.
This manual provides the doctrinal base for integrating the U.S. Army Air and Missile Defense Command into Army-level command and control architecture and operations. It provides information on requirements necessary for successful coordination of TMD in support of Army, joint, and multinational operations. This manual implements relevant joint doctrine, incorporates lessons learned from recent operations, conforms to the Armyís keystone doctrine, and provides information on the theater missile threat to U.S. forces and U.S. interests.
FM 100-12 provides doctrinal guidance for commanders, staff, trainers, and leaders at all levels and is the doctrinal basis for Army Service School curriculum development. It also provides a doctrinal basis for implementation of TMD measures in all Army units. The contents apply to Army TMD worldwide.
