Field Manual (FM) 3-05.301 presents tactics, techniques, and procedures for implementing United States (U.S.) Army Psychological Operations (PSYOP) doctrine in FM 3-05.30, Psychological Operations. FM 3-05.301 provides general guidance for commanders, planners, and PSYOP personnel who must plan and conduct effective PSYOP across the full spectrum of operations. This manual also provides guidance for PSYOP personnel to accomplish a broad range of missions successfully, using the latest organizational structure, terminology, and capabilities. FM 3-05.301 is a guide, not a regulation. As such, the tactics, techniques, and procedures it presents should not limit creativity or imagination, provided that they adhere to Army doctrine, U.S. national policy, and the commander’s intent. The targeted user of this manual is primarily the PSYOP community. Written to give PSYOP officers, noncommissioned officers (NCOs), enlisted Soldiers, and civilians standardized PSYOP doctrine, FM 3-05.301 is a comprehensive how-to manual, focusing on critical PSYOP tasks, duties, and responsibilities.
