This study presents an alternative to continued reliance on close combat urban operations paradigms that require a commitment of large numbers of soldiers to urban actions. It has six mutually reinforcing, largely simultaneous components: intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance enhancements; denial of access; nodal operations; noncombatant control; selective dominance; and post-conflict sustainment.
