Targeteer

[tahr-gi-teer]

The targeteer is a military or intelligence officer responsible for planning and coordinating bombardment-type attacks. His duties include identifying critical elements or vulnerable points, estimating collateral damage, identifying effect and weapon required and presenting/submitting targets that meet the Commander's requirements for the operational plan for approval. Once approved, the targets are passed to the unit conducting the operation (squadron, artillery or submarine) for conduct of the strike. Post-strike, the targeteer is responsible for battle damage assessment (BDA) to establish whether the weapon had the effect desired.
