  • Abstract

    When developing situational awareness in support of military operations, the U.S. armed forces use a mnemonic, or memory aide, to enable planners at all echelons to provide a comprehensive analysis of the situation. The mnemonic is METT-TC, which stands for mission, enemy, time, terrain, troops available, and civil-military considerations. By coupling METT-TC with the goal-question-indicator-metric (GQIM) method for goal-driven measurement, military planners can develop operational resilience metrics that are mission oriented and take advantage of situational awareness. This technical note describes how to use the two methods in tandem.
