Throughout history, successful military leaders have recognized
that weather conditions on the battlefield can play a significant
role in determining the victor. For this reason, the United States
maintains and equips several different types of military units that
are tasked to provide dedicated weather support to operational
commanders. These units use a variety of types of sensors with
differing capabilities to collect current weather conditions on the
battlefield. In support of the commander's Concept of Operations
(CONOP), United States military doctrine dictates that, as a part
of general military campaign planning, a Meteorological and
Oceanographic (METOC) collection plan be developed. This collection
plan should specify the allocation of all weather sensing sources
within the operational theater and throughout all phases of the
military operation. This paper describes a methodology for creating
a robust METOC collection plan in support of any given military
campaign plan that deploys air, land, maritime, and special
operations component weather sensing equipment in a way that
maximizes expected detection of operationally significant weather
conditions over the largest area possible for a given set of
available weather sensors.
