"The key here is to build interoperability between the CF and SOF."In order to provide even more realism for the conventional forces and increase SOF development, the SF teams trained and employed. Interoperability between Special Operations Forces and Conventional Forces ABSTRACT Interoperability between Special Operational Forces and Conventional Forces is the ability of both the units to support each other in services and operations and to get services from each other and to utilize the services so communicate to facilitate them to function efficiently and effectively collectively.
US SOF and CSOF Staff Integration. During the initial stages of the operation in Iraq, the 5 th Special Forces Group (Airborne) made up much of the staff assigned to the CJSOTF-W. Embedded and integrated coalition staff, consisting of Australian and British officers, served in many of the directorates of CJSOTF-W. Notably, the CJSOTF J3 (Operations) and the deputy commanders, as well as the J3. The U.S. Special Operations Command Europe has, working with NATO and other allies, developed the Resistance Operating Concept (ROC) that will contribute to deterring and resisting aggression in Eastern Europe. The ROC is a concept that will assist Nordic and Baltic countries to conduct ‘resistance operations’ in the event of an invasion or occupation by Russian military forces.
The target audience for this manual spans from special operations staff officers and enlisted personnel at United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), its component and subordinate commands, the theater special operations commands, conventional force/unified commands and their staffs that may employ SOF in their areas of responsibility.

Achieving interoperability between SOF and the conventional force is the underpinning of SOFas an effective contributor to national security efforts.
The precursor to discussing a reconfiguration of SOF is understanding the evolutionary process of SOFs. The interplay of these variables showed that environment changes combined with the sponsorship of civilian leadership had a dominant, yet, short-lived effect on SOF attempts at achieving interoperability with the conventional military, and that the incremental gains in structural and organizational aspects of SOF created conditions for achieving interoperability in the future.
The same is true today for discussion of the integration of Special Operations Forces (SOF) and the General Purpose Force (GPF). This paper will examine the doctrine within the scope of two case studies: OPERATION ANACONDA and Operations in northern Iraq during OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM in Price: $ The goal of this thesis was to decide what environmental variables affected past SOF attempts at achieving interoperability with the conventional military, to examine the status of SOF and conventional forces interoperability as it exists today, and to explain why now is the time for SOP to engage in the reconfiguration of its forces to achieve an optimal level of : Edward J.
McHale. Conventional and coalition force interoperability and interdependence with U.S. and coalition special operations forces must begin in training and be sustained through contingency operations. The routine interaction of these forces in training and during operations builds relationships and respect for each other’s capabilities.
interoperability (I&I) of Special Operations Forces (SOF) and Conventional Forces (CF) is critical to achieving the required unity of effort. Regrettably, this requirement has proven to be very problematic. Historically a marked separation has evolved between SOF and Conventional : Jeffrey Ortoli.

During 14 years of war, the Army’s Special Operations Forces (SOF) and conventional forces have been forced to work closely together. They have overcome command and control issues, communications incompatibilities and operational differences and today, they are better integrated than at any other time, said Lt.
Gen. Kenneth E. Tovo, commanding general of the Army’s Special Operations Command. Download the Brief The Issue Since 9/11, America has more than doubled the size of SOF and tripled the SOF budget.
The SOF community has developed an intelligence-driven mode of operations enabled by niche technologies, a decentralized command-and-control structure, and a unique budgeting process. Rebalancing and reorienting the SOF enterprise will require much more than a few.

A number of C2 issues contributed to inefficient execution, including the transfer of operational control (OPCON) from the Joint Special Operations Task Forces (JSOTFs) to the conventional JTF despite a special operations/indigenous forces main effort, national and theater SOF operating under separate chains of command, and the failure to include the Joint Force Air.
