Graphic Control Measures Fundamentals

A control measure symbol is a graphic used on maps and displays to regulate forces and warfighting functions. Definitions of terms related to control measure symbols are found in FM 1-02.1. Control measure symbols generally fall into one of three categories: points, lines, or areas. The coloring and labeling of control measure symbols are almost identical to framed symbols.

Colors of Graphic Control Measures

Friendly graphic control measures will be shown in black or blue when drawn manually or on a color computer-generated display. Hostile graphic control measures will be shown in red. If red is not available, they will be drawn in black with the abbreviation "ENY" placed on the graphic in at least two places. Obstacles as shown in this chapter (friendly, hostile, neutral, unknown or factional) will be drawn using the color green. If the color green is not available, obstacles should be drawn using black. The color yellow will be used for the hatching for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) contaminated areas.

Example

Control measure symbols can be combined with other symbols, icons and amplifiers to display operational information. For an example of this see the image below.

  • Enhance the effectiveness of accomplishing the commander’s objectives

  • Prevent mutual interference

  • Facilitate air defense identification

  • Prevent fratricide

  • Help in safely accommodating the flow of all air traffic in the area of operations

Graphic Control Measures - Maritime

The U.S. Army has sustainment maritime vessels that use maritime control measures to direct actions by establishing responsibilities, preventing ships, units, or aircraft from impeding one another, and imposing necessary coordination. Maritime control measures aid in the cooperation among forces without imposing needless restrictions on their freedom of action. In general terms, maritime control measures can be broken down into three groups: points, lines, and areas.

Graphic Control Measures - Mobility and Countermobility Control Measures

Mobility and countermobility are subordinate tasks within the movement and maneuver/maneuver warfighting function. Mobility and countermobility are complementary opposites. Mobility is focused on friendly force movement and maneuver, and countermobility is focused on affecting or thwarting enemy mobility.

Mobility is a quality or capability of military forces which permits them to move from place to place while retaining the ability to fulfill their primary mission.

Countermobility operations are those combined arms activities that use or enhance the effects of natural and man-made obstacles to deny enemy freedom of movement and maneuver, and includes proper obstacle integration with the maneuver plan, adherence to obstacle emplacement authority, and positive obstacle control.

Example Symbol: Obstacle Bypass, Easy

Description: Obstacles are any natural or man-made obstruction designed or employed to disrupt, fix, turn, or block the movement of an opposing force, and to impose additional losses in personnel, time, and equipment on the opposing force.

Graphic Control Measures - CBRN Events

Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear events control measure symbols depict those conditions found in an area resulting from immediate or persisting effects of chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) attacks or events. CBRN event plumes are formatted and processed by the warning system and are broadcast to operational unit common operational pictures to provide a standardized picture of CBRN hazard effects throughout the operational environment.

CBRN Events example

The symbol above represents 3 enemy chemical nerve agent event delivered by canister at 0700 Zulu hour, on 30 JUN 2008, location HS10211948.

  • A– Icon that Identifies the main function

  • C– Quantity, Identifies the number of items present
