Recent conflicts have shown the necessity to simultaneously deploy coercive actions, establish zone control and provide support to populations within a region or a city. They highlight the relevance of having land forces that are agile and able to set up adaptable military structures. From the start of operations to the withdrawal of forces, military engineering is structurally organized and equipped to deal with operational constraints of mobility and effects monitoring. The principle of “not a step without support” is integral to the action of military engineering in ensuring forces in the field freedom of action and capacity to endure

Engineering can apply to several fields of action

  • Mobility support
  • Counter-Mobility support
  • Deployment Support
  • Terrain Arrangement
  • Specific Information System
