Strategic Systems, Continued
JOPES is the DOD system used to conduct joint planning and operations. It
establishes an ordered and comprehensive set of procedures used in both
deliberate planning and crisis action planning (CAP) of joint operations. Senior
decision makers use JOPES to plan and execute mobilization, monitor
deployment, employment, sustainment, and redeployment activities. It supports
national, theater, and supporting organizational levels in both peacetime and in
crisis (see Figure 1-15).
JOPES has two end products:
OPLANs--resulting from deliberate planning in peacetime.
OPORDs--resulting from crisis action planning in an emergency.
GTN is not another transportation data base, rather it is a network of systems.
It ties together existing transportation related data bases and provides the means
to access C4 systems that support global transportation management.
GTN systems can be divided into three functional categories:
Support systems required by planners gathering transportation requirements of
the supported CINCs, developing operational plans, and evaluating the
effectiveness of the plans.
Command and Control systems primarily supporting mobilization and
Systems that support in-transit visibility.
