    NATION SPECIFIC RESERVATIONS

    DEU DEU will implement STANAG 2019 (EDITION 6) - AAP-6(C) initially for manual use only, automated systems will follow on a case by case basis.

    GRC

    Hellenic Navy will implement APP-6(C) in the operating planning - analysis framework by inserting the related symbols manually. The electronic format of APP-6(C) will be applied as a standard for the future acquisition of Automated Command and Control Support Systems on a case by case basis and in such way to

    avoid possible screen clutter.

    The United States (USA) does not subscribe to the language in Table 3-3 which reads: “A unit in which infantry and armour units are assigned together to achieve a combined arms effect.”

    Rationale. US ratification is contingent upon higher lever AJP approved terminology and MCM-0041-2010, “MC Position on the Use of Effects in Operations”; effects are created or generated to support achievement of objectives. Effects and objectives are not interchangeable terms. Text should read: “A unit in which infantry and armour units are assigned together to create a combined arms effect.”

    The USA does not subscribe to the language in paragraph 0701 which reads: “Ultimately, the joint force commander and his forces must be capable of accomplishing their mission, either directly or indirectly, by the application of physical or psychological effects, and be able to sustain such operations for as long as is necessary to achieve operational objectives.”

    Rationale. US ratification is contingent upon higher lever AJP approved terminology and MCM-0041-2010, “MC Position on the Use of Effects in Operations”; effects are the result of the employment of capabilities. Effects are not something that is applied. Text should read: “Ultimately, the joint force commander and his forces must be capable of accomplishing their mission, either directly or indirectly, by the employment of capabilities to create physical or psychological effects, and be able to sustain such operations for as long as is necessary to achieve operational objectives.”

    PREFACE

    0001.  This standard provides common operational symbology along with details on its display and plotting to ensure the compatibility and, to the greatest extent possible,

    the interoperability of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) command and

    control systems, operations, and training and is intended to be equally applicable to

    operations conducted by a coalition of NATO, partners, non-NATO nations or other

    organisations.

    0002.  This new edition reflects a baseline of agreed changes, provides additional symbols, and reflects the harmonization initialised with all services.

    0003.  Allied Procedural Publication (APP)-6(C) focuses on the building block nature of military symbols. It contains figures and tables that provide the user with standard

    frames, icons, modifiers, and amplifiers using colour, graphic and alphanumeric

    representations along with guidelines for their use. Each of the symbols shown is a

    reflection of NATO doctrine.

    0004.  APP-6(C) is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate further change, development and input from the operators and users. Changes to these symbols and

    the addition of new symbol sets will be worked through NATO procedures.

    MILITARY SYMBOLS

    SECTION I - INTRODUCTION 

    Scope

    0101. This publication provides a standardized, structured set of graphical symbols for the

    display of information in military systems and applications. A standard method for symbol

    construction is provided using common building blocks which shall be used to create currentsymbol sets as well as for creating sets that may be needed in future1.

    Purpose

    0102. In command and control of military operations, the reality of the displayed operational

     picture, its correct assessment and the decision-making speed are decisive factors. In joint

    military operations, it is imperative to have a common language clearly understood among all

    users. Graphical representation of objects, commands, movements and additional information

    (including alphanumeric text and colours) are observed and readily understood faster than

    merely text alone. This is valid even more for a us
