At the core of all TTOS programs, we focus on addressing the threats of each environment through three concepts. Survival, Mobility, and Lethality.
This course is conducted over ten training days on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. The ten-day POI is for special operations and reconnaissance units in their pre-deployment workup cycle. Teams are taught the basics of jungle living and survival over five days while they conduct small unit tactics, mountain mobility training, and combat tracking patrols. During the second week of training, teams are trained in threat detection, signature reduction TTPs, greenside shooting TTPs, finishing with a 24-36 hour dismounted targeting and interdiction CULEX.
Like all TTOS advanced programs, this course focuses on our three pillars, Survival, Mobility, and Lethality.
Survival is a broad topic. Our approach to survival is with an operational mindset designed to give the individual the confidence to live in the jungle with an expeditionary mindset, and commanders to have the confidence that their men can operate in the jungle for at least 72 hours at a time with no need for tactical resupply, preserving assets for other tasks.
Jungle terrain is mountainous terrain. Teams are taught realistic and straightforward techniques to negotiate jungle and mountainous terrain to accomplish their mission. Moving men, weapons, and equipment through the jungle has been a challenge since the beginning of time. Being light, fast and undetectable are critical to mission accomplish environment. Because of the challenging mountainous terrain, many of the USASOC Mountaineering Tasks per USASOC Regulation 350-12 are met during this program. TTOS offers additional modules to accompany essential small unit mobility such as Off-Road Driving and vehicle recovery and Amphibious Operations
Our lethality block in the jungle is Tracking, specifically the Tracking of men. It is imperative that in the jungle, the most critical ISR platform that you have access to is the tracking team. It is also critically important for commanders to understand that teams operating jungle will be tracked by enemy forces. The only way to counter this is to understand how tracking operations are conducted and to know how to track. Trained trackers give commanders the ground truth about what has happened at a given location in the jungle. Additionally, trackers are training in our program to mitigate the threat of IEDs and indigenous booby traps. We meet all PACOM IED threat brief requirements.
Our former special operations personnel staff will train your teams in the most current and historically proven immediate action drills used against the VC, ISIS, and ASG. Your teams will also have the opportunity to use their current SOPs against an OPFOR that employs enemy jungle TTPs, and you will be able to access your current capability based on that and adapt to the current threat.
The skills learned during this course will greatly enhance personnel's ability to live, operate, and fight in any jungle or greenside environment.
