PrefaceThis monograph discusses how the U.S. Army's intelligence preparation of the battlefield (IPB) process should be adapted for military operations on urbanized terrain (MOUT). It notes the capabilities of this process to help a unit engage successfully in any type of operation, and it suggests modifications to the traditional process in order to address the operational and analytic difficulties posed by urbanized areas.
This study will be of interest to armed forces and intelligence community personnel planning for or conducting operations in urban areas. It will also be of interest to any armed forces, law enforcement, and intelligence community personnel with the need to assess and address the changing threat conditions emerging from urbanization.
This research was undertaken for the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology and was conducted in the Force Development and Technology Program of RAND Arroyo Center. The Arroyo Center is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the United States Army.
