This publication, Army Techniques Publication ATP 3-09.12 Field Artillery Target Acquisition July 2015, contains the techniques used to employ and manage field artillery (FA) target acquisition systems. It updates and replaces information formerly contained in field manual (FM) 3-09.12 and incorporates emerging techniques on new equipment such as the AN/TPQ-50 and AN/TPQ-53 radars. It also introduces the new Army Structure of the division artillery (DIVARTY) and the field artillery brigade (FAB). The material contained in this Army techniques publication (ATP) applies to all personnel involved in the target acquisition process.
