Introduction to Joint Operations

By The Cove August 26, 2020


The Australian Defence Force Warfare Centre (ADFWC) is one of our premier institutions for training and education. Specifically, they adopt a joint approach, rather than focusing exclusively on single service objectives and milestones.

Here they offer 'an introduction to joint operations' (Accessible via the Defence Protected Network (DPN)), a series of presentations as well as a series of other joint concepts. Presentations include:

  • Intro to Joint Operations
  • Joint Operations - Doctrine
  • Land Capabilities
  • Intro to Amphibious Operations
  • Intro to Joint Intelligence
  • Intro to Communications
  • Intro to Operations Law
  • Intro to Joint Fires & Effects (IO & Joint Fires)
  • Maritime Capabilities
  • Air Capabilities
  • Intro to Special Forces
  • Intro to Logistics
  • Intro to Rules of Engagement
