Topic: Operations Other Than War (OOTW)

Dr. Dean S. Hartley III

Operations Other Than War (OOTW) includes all military operations other than combat and garrison activities. Related terms are Low Intensity Conflict (LIC), Irregular Warfare (IW), Stability and Support Operations (SASO), Global War on Terror (GWOT), and Stability, Security, Transition and Reconstruction (SSTR) operations. In order to understand the nature of these operations, variables beyond attrition are needed. The most prevalent characterization is Diplomatic, Information, Military, Economic (DIME) / Political, Military, Economic, Social, Infrastructure, Information (PMESII), where the PMESII variables describe the state of the situation and the DIME variables identify the actions that can be taken to affect the situation. In some circles this is known as Human Social and Cultural Behavior (HSCB).
