    center of gravity model, Robert Pape’s concept of coercion, and effects based operations (EBO) is proposed. The model creates unity of effort by affecting the adversary’s will and strategy, using all national and international IOPs, as well as securing . ters to critical vulnerabilities, enabling an attack through weak points in the overall system. Similar to the approach adopted by the Marine Corps, centers of gravity and critical vulnerabilities and Joint Pub , Joint Doctrine for Campaign Planning, to establish a clear understanding of the meaning of cen-ter of gravity. Joint Doctrine.

    Revised COG analysis draws on systems theory and uses it to link critical factors to the center of gravity. Critical factors consist of critical capabilities, critical requirements and critical vulnerabilities. The majority of the systems present in the world are nonlinear in nature. Commanders must also analyze friendly _____ and identify critical vulnerabilities (see Figure III). For example, long sea and air lines of communications (LOCs) from the continental United States (CONUS) or supporting theaters could be a critical vulnerability for a friendly _____.

    An important element of emerging joint doctrine is the idea that potential enemies have centers of gravity and critical vulnerabilities. Joint Publication , Doctrine for Joint Operations, states, "The essence of operational art lies in being able to mass effects against the enemy's sources of power in order to destroy or neutralize them. An indirect attack against an enemy center of gravity’s CRs causes a center of gravity to lose its critical capability or ability to generate force. In this case, some of a center of gravity’s CRs might be vulnerable to attack or disruption. A direct attack on a COG’s requirements is an indirect attack on the COG proper.

leads us not to a CoG, but to a set of critical (physical or psychological) capabilities. This process appears to have borrowed from Dr. Joseph Strange’s popular “CG (center of gravity)—CC (critical capabilities)—CR (critical requirements)—CV (critical vulnerabilities)” approach.

In theory, Strange’s approach linked CoGs (which he definedCited by: Clausewitz, On War, excerpts relating to term "Center[s] of Gravity." This term "center of gravity" (Schwerpunkt) appears about 40 times in Clausewitz's book, most often with no particular or consistent meaning.

See pp,, 2 Note that this model uses the abbreviation “CG” for center of gravity. For all purposes, “CG” and “COG” should be considered synonymous.

We discuss the new Center of Gravity definitions that are starting to be used in Joint planning and how they improve on the traditional definition.

By definition, a critical vulnerability cannot also be a center of gravity since they are polar opposites; one a strength the other a weakness.

Since it makes more sense to attack a weakness than a strength, once identified, critical vulnerabilities provide opportunities for exploitation. While easy to describe in concept, both centers of.

The operational-level centers of gravity were the SS units, armor, and mechanized units in the Army (the Luftwaffe was a center of gravity in the beginning of the war but by the end of the war it had been destroyed so much that it no longer played a major role and the navy's only role was in submarine warfare and was not an operational center.Get this from a library!
