These Logistics and Engineering operations manuals are specially written for use in a military or survival context. Such topics as bridge building engineering, defense structures and underground construction are covered as well as moving cargo efficiently and effectively.
Engineering is the design, analysis, and/or construction of works for practical purposes. The Engineers’ Council for Professional Development, also known as ECPD, defines Engineering as: “The creative application of scientific principles to design or develop structures, machines, apparatus, or manufacturing processes, or works utilizing them singly or in combination; or to construct or operate the same with full cognizance of their design; or to forecast their behavior under specific operating conditions; all as respects an intended function, economics of operation and safety to life and property.”
The broad discipline of engineering encompasses a range of specialized sub disciplines that focus on the issues associated with developing a specific kind of product, or using a specific type of technology.
The engineering operations handbooks in this section suggest, explain and provide plans for many different constructions essential in combat, warfare and survival.
This manual states the doctrine, policy and guidelines for the conduct of land equipment maintenance functions in static operations. It expands on Land Maintenance System, which describes the basic principles, doctrine, and policies governing the organization, personnel and equipment that form the Land Maintenance System (LMS).
This US Army Field Manual – General Engineering – provides a doctrinal basis for the planning and execution of general engineering in the Theater of Operations. General engineering sustains military forces in the theater through the performance of facility construction and repair, and through acquisition, maintenance, and disposal of real property.
Marine Corps Warfighting Publication, Rear Area Operations, describes the Marine Corps’ approach to rear area operations. It provides general doctrinal guidance for the Marine Corps component and the Marine air–ground task force (MAGTF) commander and staff responsible for executing rear area operations.
This manual describes the organizations, processes, procedures, and systems involved in the control of movements across the military spectrum. The focus of this manual is for the reader to gain an understanding of the movement control system and how it functions from the strategic to the tactical level.
The foundation for engineer doctrine in the AirLand Battle is built with combined mobility, countermobility, and survivability efforts. This manual provides the basic framework of fielded and developmental countermobility methods, planning, and execution with the purpose of integrating countermobility into the overall AirLand Battle structure.
Field fortifications are natural or man-made protective features used as defensive obstacles, personnel and weapons shelters, and protected firing positions. This sub-course teaches you how to construct personnel, vehicle, and weapons emplacements, entrenchments, shelters, entanglements, and obstacles under various climatic conditions.
This army field manual describes how engineer recon teams support and augment a maneuver battalion or brigade's recon effort. This manual serves as a guide for both brigade and task force (TF) engineers, as well as for subordinate leaders (especially recon team leaders) in planning, integrating, and conducting recon operations.
This publication provides general information on the numerous capabilities engineers bring to the battle, from planning through to the execution of an operation. It provides guidance for planning and coordinating engineer support and explains the unique command and support relationships of engineers.
This course presents a survey of the functions of management, the principles governing the functions and their ability to apply them to construction management. An understanding of these factors and the ability to apply them to construction projects is essential to the engineer company commander and the members of the battalion staff.
The purpose of this manual is to provide the authoritative doctrine by which the Army's combat service support (CSS), as part of the national–theater CSS system, supports full spectrum operations. This manual serves as the Army’s keystone CSS doctrine and bridges the gap between Army doctrine and joint and multinational doctrine.
