Project Announcement: Re-Announcement of Evaluation of Kinetic Targeting Processes in the United States Africa Command Area of Responsibility (Project No. D2020-DEV0PD0093.000)

Evaluation

We plan to restart the subject evaluation in May 2021. Due to the Coronavirus-19 travel constraints we suspended the project 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 area of responsibility to reduce civilian casualties (CIVCAS) and collateral damage. We will also determine whether USAFRICOM and USSCOCOM followed CIVCAS reporting procedures in the USAFRICOM area of responsibility. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
