Chapter 1

INTRODUCTION

1.1. General. This instruction establishes operational reporting within AFSPC. The reporting requirements in this instruction are structured to conform to those specified in Joint Reporting Structure (JRS) of the Joint Staff (JS) and the Air Force Operational Reporting System (AFOREP). Specific Air Force Space Command responsibilities, formats, and reporting requirements are outlined herein.

1.2. Overall Responsibilities. The Commander Space Operations Flight (DOC), Directorate of Operations (DO), and Headquarters AFSPC are the overall offices of primary responsibility (OPR) for the AFSPC Reporting System (ARS).

1.3. Definitions and Abbreviations. The definitions and abbreviations used in this instruction conform to JS Publication 1.

1.4. Supporting Procedures. This instruction outlines the requirements for the ARS and requires supporting operating procedures and checklists.

1.5. Recommendations for changes. Send recommendations and revisions to this instruction to HQ AFSPC/DOC, 150 Vandenberg St, Ste 1105, Peterson AFB CO 80914-4190 for approval.

Chapter 2

AFSPC REPORTING SYSTEM (ARS)

2.1. General. JS reports are designed at the highest level of command, and are specified for use at all levels. The JRS serves as a model for all report systems created by subordinate levels of command. The JRS defines the format and content of reports specifically required by the JS of subordinate commands and further establishes a report structure that is used by all subordinates as a prototype for subsequently designed reporting systems. This system does not include all service and command designed reports necessary to satisfy the unique missions of the services and the commands. Within AFSPC there are three separate reporting systems: the JRS of the JS, the AFOREP, and the ARS as detailed in this instruction. Where possible, the ARS follows the content and format criteria of the JRS and AFOREP. The reporting requirements in this instruction are exempt from licensing in accordance with paragraph 2.11.10 of AFI 37-124, The Information Collections and Reports Management Program; Controlling Internal, Public, and Interagency Air Force Information Collections. All AFSPC subordinate units are required to maintain Air Force publications referenced in this instruction as follows:

2.1.1. AFMAN 10-206, Operational Reporting.

2.1.2. AFP 102-2, Vol I, Joint User Handbook for Message Text Formats (JUH-MTF).

2.1.3. AFI 91-204, Investigating and Reporting USAF Mishaps.

2.1.4. AFI 31-101 Volume 1, and Volume 2 (C) The Physical Security Program (PA) (U).

2.1.5. AFI 10-707, Spectrum Interference Resolution.

2.2. AFSPC Reporting System (ARS). The system is designed to:

2.2.1. Conform to the reporting format and reporting criteria of the JRS of the JS and the AFOREP while allowing the latitude to design AFSPC unique reports using the same standardized reporting criteria.

2.2.2. Satisfy the information needs of the NCA, Chief of Staff of the Air Force (CSAF), USSPACECOM, USSTRATCOM, NORAD, and Commander, AFSPC.

2.2.3. Help the Commander, AFSPC plan, direct, coordinate, and control assigned forces.

2.2.4. Provide a systematic approach to establishing and monitoring report requirements.

2.3. How To Submit Reports:

2.3.1. AFSPC wings and groups submit reports using the procedures and addressees specified in this instruction. Wings/groups will specify reporting procedures for subordinate units. Maximum support from host bases should be arranged to meet Air Force reporting requirements for subordinate units that are tenants on other installations. Reports submitted by host bases will not be duplicated through AFSPC channels.

2.3.2. Voice reports submitted by AFSPC units begin and end with the report title.

2.4. Reporting Authority. Joint Publication 2, DOD Directive 7750.5, and AFMAN 10-206 provide the authority for ARS reporting requirements.

2.5. Report Categories. Information sent through the ARS is divided into the following categories:

2.5.1. Operational and Maintenance Reports. Provide information on planning, initiation, termination, and results of operations, significant events, incidents, or operational situations. These reports enable AFSPC commanders at all levels to determine and report their readiness capability and to provide and receive appropriate responses to significant incidents. Reports under this category are the operational reports (OPREP) and the Spectrum Interference Resolution Report.

2.5.2. Other Reports and Notifications. Provide Daily Operations Reports (DORs) and Daily Activity Reports (DARs). Those units with a requirement to submit DORs or DARs will use formats and requirements in each unit's Tactical Requirements Document (TRD), AFI, or similar document.

5.5.4. MINIMIZE. Not affected by MINIMIZE.

5.5.5. Authentication. As required.

5.5.6. Voice Report. Make telephonic communications, via host WCP for all appropriate higher headquarters agencies through the appropriate NAF to the AFSPC Command Center. Use voice notification format located in AFP 102-2, Vol I., Annex 141 to chapter 3, para 3-141-6.

5.5.6.1. HOMELINE. OPREP-3 HOMELINE reports thatdeal with USAF and AFSPC matters exclusively; such as deaths, injuries, and assaults are not sent to USSPACECOM or NORAD addressees. Send voice reports through the WCP, appropriate NAF, and AFSPC Command Center.

5.5.6.2. Agencies. When contact is made with the WCP, NAF and Command Center, pass a voice report giving all available information on the event or incident.

5.5.7. If the report contents are classified and securevoice communications are not available, advise higher headquarters that a hardcopy message has been submitted.

5.5.8. If expected to exceed the record copy time constraints, pass an initial voice report stating this fact.

Note: Use the OPREP reporting chain for advice or direction whenever in doubt as to which report to send.

5.5.9. Degraded Communications: When there is no voice contact with the WCP or appropriate NAF, pass all reports to the next higher level of command. If there is no contact with any level within AFSPC, pass BEELINE/PINNACLE reports to the NMCC (DSN 851-3840) or AFOC (DSN 227-6103) directly until contact with the AFSPC is reestablished. For HOMELINE reports when there is no contact with the WCP, NAF, or AFSPC Command Center, send the report to the following agencies:

5.5.9.1. NORAD/USSPACECOM Consolidated Command Center (NUCCC).

5.5.9.2. Either the Missile Warning Center (MWC), or the Space Control Center (SCC), but only if direct communication is available to these agencies.

5.5.9.3. The agencies listed in above paragraphs will pass reports to the appropriate NAF Operations Center or AFSPC Command Center by the fastest means available.

5.6. Specific Reporting Instructions. DO NOT delay OPREP-3 reporting for the purpose of sending a cosmeticallyreport. The knowledge of the event or incident is more importanttimeliness is of the essence. Commanders must be prepared to make an immediate decision as to the degree of significance of each occurrence and the necessity for reporting it. The paramount guideline for commanders making the decision to report or not report an incident or event is: WHEN IN DOUBT - REPORT IT. No criticism is forthcoming for reporting an event or incident which at the time seemed significant but is later deemed to be not reportable. If the event or incident is later deemed not reportable, make appropriate up channel notification.

5.6.1. Report Numbering. Number all OPREP-3 reports consecutively and keep a separate log for the various OPREP-3 message types. Number the first report for the calendar year 001 and subsequent in sequence; for example, 002, 003 and so forth. Further reports concerning the same event or incident use the same number with an alphabetical suffix; for example, 001A, 001B, and so forth. Since a voice report is sent first, it is numbered and the follow-on record reports use the same number; for example, initial voice report is 001, initial record report is 001, follow-on voice and associated record report is 001A so forth.

5.6.1.1. Exercisenumbered independently of real-worldbeginning001 at the start of each exercisecontinueduntil exercise termination. Exercise reports should have their own log.

5.6.2. OPREP-3 HOMELINE.

9.1.5. The DORs contain the overall OPSCAP/SYSCAP by color code for system elements/systems at the time of the DOR closeout, a chronological listing of OPSCAP/SYSCAP changes since the previous DOR, a twenty-four hour summary of operations, rehearsal activities, and Significant Data Losses (SDLs), and remarks to include corrections or additions to previous DORs, high-interest items related to operations and mission, and miscellaneous information essential to support DOR entries. For GPS, include a chronological listing of Selective Availability/Anti-Spoofing (SA/AS) periods and levels, NDS events, and link 3 (L-3) activations. 50 SW will also provide (as soon as available) orbital accuracy (apogee, perigee, and inclination) for payload-booster separation for all launches and final mission orbit for AFSPC-operated systems in sigma terms.

9.2. Notice Advisory to Navigation Users (NANU). For GPS, the 50 SW will submit routine and supplemental NANU reports. NANUs advise GPS users of systems changes affecting quality of navigation messages and contain past and or predicated changes in accuracy or availability of navigation messages, satellite status as it affects navigation mission, remarks including corrections or additions to previous NANUS, and items related to the navigation mission. Routine NANUs are submitted as soon as possible after confirmation or implementation of a system change affecting accuracy or availability of navigation messages. Supplemental NANUs are submitted within 1 hour when navigation outages last more than 30 minutes. Transmit by PRIORITY precedence. Emergency status and precedence category assigned to this report is IMMEDIATE (C-2), minimize code is YES, classification is according to the GPS/NDS SCG.
