United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Military Signals Unit Manual
This first edition of the United Nations Signals Unit Manual provides field commanders and their staff with a guide for planning and conducting Military Signals Unit operations in support of United Nations peacekeeping Missions. Troop Contributing Countries, United Nations Headquarters and Mission staff will find this Manual an essential reference as they plan for, generate and employ Military Signals Units for UN Missions. The intent of this Manual is not to override the national military doctrine of individual Member States or Troop Contributing Countries, nor impose requirements on national training, operations or structures. This Manual does not prescribe any military tactics, techniques and procedures, nor is it the intent of this Manual to serve as an instrument for unit selection. Indeed, unit structures will be adapted, ultimately, in accordance with specific Mission requirements and any Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) negotiated between the UN and a Troop Contributing Country. Instead, this Manual serves as a complement to existing or emerging Troop Contributing Countries’ military doctrine, and preparation for the enhanced performance achieved through interoperability with other Troop Contributing Countries participating in the peacekeeping operation.This Manual is primarily written at the operational level. It is based on UN guidance reflecting lessons learned, feedback from field Missions and input from peacekeeping practitioners in UN Military Signals Unit peacekeeping.
