41 Summer 2015 Number Title Date Status ATP 3-11.23 MCWP 3-37.7 NTTP 3-11.35 AFTTP 3-2.71 Multi-Service Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Weapons of Mass Destruction Elimination Operations 1 Nov 13 Current. Army Techniques Publication (ATP) 3-11.23 is "Part 2" of ATP 3-11.37. The WMD–elimination isolation activity is the seam that links the battle handover from a conventional CBRN force conducting the assessment task to the technical CBRN force conducting exploitation and destruction tasks. ATP 3-11.23 educates the reader on performing the entire process from cradle (reconnoitering) to grave (monitoring and redirecting) and on planning, preparing, executing, performing, and assessing considerations throughout. This tactical-level publication truly focuses on "left of boom" actions. ATP 3-11.32 MCWP 3-37.2 NTTP 3-11.37 AFTTP 3-2.46 (Volumes I and II) Multi-Service Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Passive Defense TBD Under development. Will combine, revise, and supersede FM 3-11.3, FM 3-11.4, and FM 3-11.5. Will be published 3d quarter, fscal year (FY) 2015. ATP 3-11.32 will consist of two volumes. Volume I will contain information for conducting operations; performing tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP); and understanding how to carry out CBRN passive defense. Volume II will contain supporting technical information (CBRN Warning and Reporting System, hazard prediction, decontamination). ATP 3-11.32 will contain the latest validated information regarding hazard prediction and warning and reporting procedures. It will present tactical-level discussions on the validated joint concept of contamination mitigation, which will be introduced in the revised JP 3-11. ATP 3-11.36 MCRP 3-37B NTTP 3-11.34 AFTTP 3-2.70 Multi-Service Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Aspects of Command and Control 1 Nov 13 Current. ATP 3-11.36 includes the doctrinal employment of CBRN capabilities (organizations, personnel, technology, and information) to characterize CBRN threats and hazards, including toxic industrial material, for the commander and the force. This manual also incorporates the joint doctrine elements for combating WMD. It is designed to provide operational- and tactical-level commanders and staffs with capability employment planning data and considerations to shape military operations involving CBRN threats and hazards and operations in CBRN environments. ATP 3-11.37 MCWP 3-37.4 NTTP 3-11.29 AFTTP 3-2.44 Multi-Service Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Reconnaissance and Surveillance 25 Mar 13 Current. ATP 3-11.37 is designed for the conventional force. It establishes forms, modes, and methods of (and tasks for) CBRN reconnaissance and surveillance. It also establishes four new CBRN hazard identifcation levels that have been accepted by combatant commanders and the medical community for environmental samples and clinical specimens. These new hazard identifcation levels allow the conventional force to provide the commander with sample identifcation at higher levels of confdence. This, in turn, allows the commander to make more timely, higher-level decisions that enhance force protection, improve mission accomplishment, and result in resource savings. It establishes a sample management process and educates Soldiers on the protocols of the process, from sample collection through transfer. Finally, it instructs Soldiers on dismounted reconnaissance operations in urban environments. FM 3-11.21 MCRP 3-37.2C NTTP 3-11.24 AFTTP(I) 3-2.37 Multi-Service Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Consequence Management Operations 1 Apr 08 Under revision. Will be redesignated ATP 3-11.41. Will be published 1st quarter, FY 16. ATP 3-11.41 will focus on DOD support to domestic or foreign CBRN consequence management operations. It will be designed for CBRN responders who plan and conduct CBRN consequence management operations in domestic, foreign, or theater operational environments. It will provide an important reference for planning and conducting CBRN consequence management. ATP 3-11.46 AFTTP 3-2.81 Weapons of Mass Destruction–Civil Support Team Operations 20 May 14 Current. ATP 3-11.46 serves as the foundation for WMD–civil support team (CST) doctrine. It focuses on the organization, mission, command and control (C2), and operations of WMD-CSTs, which are full-time Army National Guard units designed to provide the specialized capability necessary to respond to intentional and unintentional incidents and natural and man-made disasters. The WMD-CST, a component of the CRE, provides direct support to local, tribal, state, and federal emergency responders, including fre, police, and emergency medical service personnel. Unless federalized under Title 10, U.S. Code (10 USC), Armed Forces , WMD-CSTs operate in 32 USC, National Guard, status within the United States and its territories and possessions. Responding under the authority of the state governor, WMD-CSTs assist agencies that may be overwhelmed or may require specifc technical capabilities which are not otherwise readily available. ATP 3-11.47 AFTTP 3-2.79 Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High-Yield Explosives Enhanced Response Force Package (CERFP) and Homeland Response Force (HRF) Operations 26 Apr 13 Current.
