Gain a Clear View of the Enemy through the Fog of War with Close Target Reconnaissance

Timely, accurate close target reconnaissance (CTR) creates the formula for mission success and breaks through the fog of war.

Performed properly, CTR allows operators to strike with surprise, at the right time and place. It fuses operations and intelligence by providing with the 5 “W’s” (who, what, when where, why) for find, fix, finish, and follow-on operations.

Clandestine operations require extensive experiential training and exacting tactics, techniques, and procedures. Concealment and mobility are keys to a guerrilla’s success, according to B. H. Liddell Hart in his book, Strategy. The same is true for the operator who practices CTR. Up-to-date and relevant training, leading up to a Full Mission Profile, before deployment creates the foundation for mission success.

To be effective, such programs should be tailored for the unit’s mission objectives and delivered by highly experienced individuals who have “been there and done that.”

TOSS Subject Matter Experts have been hand-selected for individual, high-risk deployments or who have served in sensitive, high-level covert operations.
