    JTAC Brevity

    I'm not completely up to speed on JTAC brevity codes. Does anyone know what these mean/when they are used?

    Pulse
    Snake
    Rope
    Spot
    Termiante
    Shift beam
    Shift

    Thanks!

      Yes, I have them, but not all of those commands are in thereor are explained fully, or told when you are supposed to use them (sequence).

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multis...l_brevity_code give this a looksie. unfortunately PULSE is not listed. and i think you meant TERMINATE. pulse i believe is a shortened command. another good link is this. multiservice brevity code listing https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a404426.pdf

          Those are for IR/laser designation procedure, since you asked :
          Pulse = illuminate a position w/ a flashing IR pointer (used to deconflict several pointers on the battlefield)
          Snake = oscillate IR pointer in a figure 8 shape about a target, used to distinguish friendly from target
          Rope = circle IR pointer in the given direction (cardinal or straight up) to allow acquisition of friendly position
          Spot = laser designation acquisition
          Terminate = not used anymore, "cease" is used instead i.e "cease laser/sparkle"
          Shift beam = doesn't exist
          Shift = shift laser/IR/whatever to the given direction

          There are many more brevities for IR or laser procedures, you should learn them, it's easy. SPARKLE/STEADY/DEADEYE/NEGATIVE LASER/CONTACT SPARKLE/10 SECONDS to name a few.

            Thanks.

            What about brevity such as Have Quick and Mickey?

            I heard this come up in some of Sedlo's missions.

              Mickey is for the Time Of the Day for Have Quick, havequick is a radio mode. Go active is the brevity for initiating HQ.

                Thanks. Can you give an example how/when these are used?

                  A mickey (TOD) is typically self generated by each A/C using a GPS time stamp. However, if someone in the flight can't get a mickey for some reason - then another airplane can pass a mickey to get them synched up with the rest of the flight. The comm might sound like this:

                  "Rocket flight, standby Mickey in five".

                  The flight lead would then send a tone over the flight common radio freq to make sure everyone was on the same TOD.

                  Once everyone was able to go into Have Quick Mode, the comm would be:

                  "Rocket flight, Push (or Go) button 5, active".
                  "Rocket check active" (flight responds) "twoop, threep, fourp"

                    Since HQ is frequency hopping, it has to be time synchronized and I guess MICKEY is what you call to give the TOD, but don't get me wrong, I have never used it. And for "go active", well you use that when you want HQ mode for your comms eh?

                    EDIT : Notso beat me to it!
