The Threat Targeting and Allocation Specialist must have an understanding of each threat country's differing capabilities, preferred Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) and strategic objectives for any given scenario and be able to apply these capabilities to the specific scenario.The Threat Targeting and Allocation Specialist functions as the threat targeteer, and from the adversary's perspective assigns a ballistic missile from that country's Order of Battle against specific targets, and then functions as the threat weaponeer, assigning a specific warhead to each missile used in the attack to achieve the scenario's training or engineering objective.
The Threat Targeting and Allocation process results in an end-to-end threat attack laydown file that is modeled by the TMC, providing the kinematic output data of simulated ballistic missile trajectories. This is provided to US missile defense activities and select foreign countries for use in their simulations to analyze missile defense system performance and effectiveness. A function of the Threat Allocation Specialist is to help review customer scenario requests and provide feedback on potential problems or issues before the production process begins. The Threat Targeting and Allocation Specialist must review the final document to ensure the customer's objectives were met and the high resolution data accurately reflects the specifications provided to the TMC.
