  Military Operations Other Than War
Military planners typically focused on the high and midlevels of conflict where the emphasis was on fighting and winning wars that required the ability to defend, attack, and conduct large-scale combat operations.
The new policy concept is called “military operations other than war.” Such operations cover a wide range of activities in which national military forces are used for purposes other than full-scale combat operations at the general war level of the combat spectrum.
The basic dilemma remains: military operators will not have the clear goals and objectives they consider essential to any planning or execution of their resources; yet civilian decision makers and diplomats will continue to see military forces as one important element of a menu of potential responses to natural and political crises.

  Military operation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A military operation is the employment of military resources (for example in a military campaign) to achieve a specific objective.
It can involve the carrying out of a strategic, tactical, service, training, or administrative military mission in the process of carrying on combat, including movement, supply, attack, defense, and maneuvers needed to gain the objectives of any battle or campaign.
Military operations are often referred to by a code name.

Spatial data is of crucial importance to the Military Commander in the battle as it is for a decision maker in planning and development in a state's growth.
In addition, ECDIS can be used to other naval operations using additional layers of information related to oceanographic and meteorological conditions to provide the means for naval operations such as anti-submarine or beach landing of armed forces in military operations.
Military leaders heavily depend on GIS and GPS (Global Positioning Systems) to make tactical decisions such guiding troops, supplies/equipment and ships, informing them of possible threats, problems with terrain in which they will encounter and also to direct there attention to specific areas of interests.

Military planners must consider how their actions contribute to initiatives, which are also political, economic, and psychological in nature.
More recent military operations of this century are harder to compare as the advent of technology has broadened the role of other factors (artillery, aircraft, electronics, satellites and computers).

 The Cost of US Military Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan Through Fiscal Year 2006 and Beyond STEVEN KOSIAK / Center ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
These include, for example, costs associated with operating equipment more intensively than would normally be the case in peacetime (i.e., higher operations, maintenance and repair costs), the cost of transporting personnel, equipment and supplies into, around and out of the region, and a variety of other logistics and other costs.
This suggests that a reasonable estimate of FY 2005 costs for military operations in Afghanistan would be $16 billion, with $70 billion needed to cover the cost of operations in Iraq.
On the other hand, the financial burden posed by these ongoing military operations is substantially lower when measured as a share of the economy—since today’s economy is much larger than that existing at the time of the Korean or Vietnam Wars.

 A GIS Assisted Knowledge-Based Approach for Military Operations
Military history is full of incidents wherein a smaller army having a good knowledge of the terrain has defeated a much larger well-equipped and organised army.
However, planning of military operations is a complex process and is guided by the experience and capability of the commander and his staff who provide the necessary inputs to him.
Some common military operations such as selection of sites for bridges, ferries and helipads, identification of tactically important roads and vehicle mobility movement are considered.

 XI. Intelligence Support to Military Operations
But as military activity extends to missions involving the use of military forces in non-traditional roles, we must adapt our intelligence focus to meet new requirements." SMO vs. Support to the Policy Maker As stated earlier, SMO is one of the major roles of intelligence.
With the proliferation of military deployment throughout the world, mostly for OMO, a sole emphasis on SMO threatens to consume entirely IC resources to the point that the IC is only accomplishing SMO, thus, leading to a foreign policy that is almost totally reactive, with its primary response being the deployment of troops.
We certainly believe that, at the lowest operational level, a thorough understanding of and experience with the requirements of an individual service unit in the field must be part of the process of assessing needs, and, in some cases, having tactical intelligence assets controlled and operated in support of military operations is a requirement.

 Private Contractors on Deployed Military Operations: Inter-Agency Opportunities and Challenges
It is assumed that there are safe and “benign” areas in which contractors can operate, that private sector capacity acts to enhance overall force capa­bility, that private firms can be integrated effectively into military command and control (C2) arrange­ments, and that contractors form a vital “augmen­tation” to the deployed force.
These risks are potentially significant because contractors may simply withdraw from an operation they con­sider too risky, leaving the armed services stripped of vital capabilities, or contractors may attempt to “hold up” the defense ministry by extracting excessive profits at the time the military needs them most.
However, the financial implications of outsourced deployed operational support are less clear as only limited information has entered the public domain.

 When Should the Government Use Contractors to Support Military Operations?
Military contractors are currently assisting militar­ies around the world with missions that range from training and supply chain management to fighting in battles.
Yet relying on military con­tractors has its share of risks, including potential shortfalls in mission success, concerns over the safety of contractors, loss of resources because a capability is outsourced, loss of total force management, and problems of compliance with administrative law.
Military organizations can be classified based on their location in the battle space: the general the­ater, the theater of war, and the tactical theater (the actual area of operations).

Furthermore, Palestinian sources maintain that the recent operations carried out by Hamas' military wing, Ezz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, were not coordinated with the Hamas-led government, but rather, were backed by the exiled leadership which holds authority over the group's military wing.
Nonetheless, Palestinian sources also stress that the Hamas military wing and its heads in Damascus should recognize that continued operations such as those undertaken on Sunday are likely to result in severe Israeli reprisals that would further increase the suffering of the Palestinian people.
Those same sources claim that the fact that Arab and foreign leaders have been involved in frantic talks to secure the release of the soldier while remaining silent when Palestinian civilians are killed is further evidence of the problems facing the Palestinians since Hamas rose to power.
