1-15. Protection Levels. The staff develops an OPORD, an OPLAN, or a contingency plan
(CONPLAN) and may publish a full environmental annex/appendix (only once). To facilitate changes in
environmental requirements, the command may produce an environmental-protection level matrix
similar to the example in Table 1-2. This matrix ties directly into risk assessment and is applied in the
MDMP during mission analysis step 7.

1-16. Notional Array of Protection Levels. Standard levels of environmental-protection facilitate
planning, communications, and flexibility. The notional array of protection levels in Figure 1-2 ranges
from Level 1 to Level 4. Level 1 is less restrictive and more appropriate for tactical units in combat.
Level 4 is very restrictive and more appropriate for tactical units in garrison, on fixed installations,
