NOTES:
  • All information about the generic corridor herein is purely fictional, fabricated based on the Project Team's collective experience, to provide a basis for describing the ICM operational concepts herein. The CONOPS for a real corridor will have more information.
  • The actual situation for most real-world corridors will undoubtedly be different from this generic corridor in terms of network types and other corridor characteristics, stakeholders, institutional and technical environments and the ICM concept and operational capabilities as discussed herein. Accordingly, users should tailor the information and/or sections within each chapter of this Generic CONOPS to develop their site-specific ICM CONOPS to meet any and all of their unique corridor conditions.
  • The generic corridor and the associated CONOPS does not attempt to be all-inclusive with respect to the types of networks that might be included within a corridor, the ICM stakeholders, and the operational approaches and strategies to be deployed.
