Tasking Combat Camera
The allocation of COMCAM capability is executed through the Global Force Management (GFM) process. The purpose of the GFM is to manage the allocation and apportionment of deployed forces into a predictive, streamlined and integrated process. Utilization of the GFM enables the SecDef to make proactive, informed management decisions by evaluating risk to the Services and allocating appropriate forces to known requirements. COCOM planners develop requirements and submit them to JCS through the respective J1/3 by entering the requirement into the Joint Capabilities and Requirements Manager (JCRM). Refer to Appendix A for specific capabilities. All rotational and emergent COMCAM requirements for joint operations must be vetted through the GFM process to the Service providers. Once the requirement is sourced to the respective Services, the details (personnel and logistics) will be loaded in the Joint Operations and Planning Execution System (JOPES) for assignment of Unit Line Numbers (ULNs).
Note: A lack of familiarization with COMCAM capabilities can often lead to inaccurate requests for COMCAM services and support. For detailed assistance contact the component command (COCOM) COMCAM Planner to plan COMCAM integration into Joint Operations. In the absence of the COCOM Planner contact the Joint COMCAM Program Manager at Defense Imagery Management and Operations Center.
