Project Announcement:Evaluation of Kinetic Targeting Processes in the U.S. Africa Command Area of Responsibility (Project No. D2020-DEVOPD-0093.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in March 2020. The objective of this evaluation is to determine whether U.S. Africa Command (USAFRICOM) and U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) established and followed targeting procedures in the USAFRICOM AOR to reduce civilian casualties (CIVCAS) and collateral damage. We will also determine whether USAFRICOM and USSCOCOM followed CIVCAS reporting procedures in the USAFRICOM AOR. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
