Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace The GEOINT estimate will support initial intelli- gence estimates and collections, production, and dissemination planning for the IPB process during initial planning. Identification of the area of oper- ations (AO) and area of interest (AOI) is critical for prioritization, intensification, and value- adding to meet mission-specific requirements. The IPB process analysis and production time lines require that the estimate identify potential objectives, intelligence requirements (IR), and specific EETIs. This ensures that tailored prod- ucts are available to support all MAGTF planning and decisionmaking requirements. Distributive and Collaborative Production Network The GEOINT estimate will provide critical intel- ligence to support the development of the geospa- tial information infrastructure in support of the MAGTF. This will allow the MAGTF plans staff and intelligence battalion to identify key MAGTF communications and information systems require- ments and to coordinate collaborative support from other GEOINT assets (e.g., geospatial analy- sis branch) as well as the national production network.

E-2 ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ MCWP 2-12.1 Risk Mitigation and Assessment Within the joint GI&S community, risk mitigation encompasses activities accomplished early in de- liberate planning. Only when an operation plan is activated will National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) conduct a risk assessment to ap- prise the supported combatant commander of the pertinent GEOINT production plans and activities status. The GEOINT estimate provides a process for the MAGTF G-2 staff and intelligence battalion to perform a risk assessment for each COA based on available GEOINT. Mission success or failure de- pends on the types of GI&S data available for specific missions and systems used in the MAGTF. Availability of GI&S products is evalu- ated based on the following priorities and readi- ness levels. Priorities This process is used to determine an appropriate level of readiness required for the plan based on likelihood of execution and calculation of prepa- ration times based on MAGTF IRs and indica- tions and warning. l Priority 1. GEOINT data and product unavail- ability will prevent performance of mission. l Priority 2. GEOINT data and product unavail- ability will significantly impact performance of mission. l Priority 3. GEOINT data and product unavail- ability will have minor impact on performance of mission. Readiness Level The GEOINT estimate is a planning tool which the MEF G-2 and intelligence battalion uses to determine how much effort is required for a par- ticular OPLAN to meet MAGTF requirements. This information is articulated to the joint task force or combatant command’s GI&S officer and other intelligence personnel using the following GI&S readiness levels: l C-1. All required products and information must exist as standard or substitute products and information. All products can be made ade- quate and delivered within the time required for the plan.
