ATP 3-01.50 provides basic tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for the tactical employment of the ADAM cell in the Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT) and the support brigades, an overview of the differences in operation of the ADAM/BAE assigned to an HBCT and IBCT as one unified element, and the AMD cell at higher echelon units.
ATP 3-01.50 applies to Army headquarters from brigade through corps. It applies to all Army leaders, especially trainers, educators, force designers, and doctrine developers. Army headquarters serving as a headquarters for a joint force land component or joint task force should refer to appropriate joint doctrine, policies, and regulations.
ATP 3-01.50 has an introduction and four chapters. It augments, but does not replace, the planning doctrine in ADP 5-0 and the MISSION COMMAND (MC) doctrine in FM 6-0. It expands MC doctrine regarding decision making, assessment, and exercise of MC during execution.
• The Introduction details the role of doctrine. It also expands upon the manual’s purpose and summarizes the doctrinal changes it contains.
• Chapter 1 provides an overview of the ADAM cell and details its missions and roles in the protection cell, airspace command and control, and airspace management. It also describes the ADAM cell equipment.
• Chapter 2 details the different echelons at which the ADAM cell will be used. It expands the operations process and discusses how several processes integrate during the planning, preparing, executing, and assessment activities of an operation. It reinforces the commander’s role in exercising MC and the staff’s role in supporting the commander and subordinate commanders.
• Chapter 3 details command and control, war fighting functions, military decision making, and communications. It explains the various processes involved during the integration of planning, preparing, executing, and assessing activities of an operation. This chapter also reinforces the commander’s role in exercising MC and the staff’s role in supporting the commander and subordinate commanders. Communications requirements for effective employment of the ADAM cell are also described.
• Chapter 4 broadens the doctrine for exercising MC during execution established in FM 6-0. It details the rapid decision making and synchronization process. Also discussed are the Army Battle Command System (ABCS) roles and recommended procedures with the ADAM cell, the common operational picture (COP) recommended procedures and operational process, and specific ADAM cell staff tasks.
• Appendix A describes initialization as it pertains to the user initializing each system safely. It is a composite of checklists used for deployment preparation, powering up the ABCS, establishing digital communications, and creating and distributing ABCS databases.
• Appendix B details the ADAM cell capabilities and operational functions. It also describes AMD and aviation augmentation, with a list and general description of AMD and aviation assets which the maneuver commander may task for operations.
• Appendix C explains the importance of liaison and identifies the key staff sections that the ADAM crew must interface with to accomplish its tactical mission.
