QWI (ISR) provides the Find, Fix, Track and Assess portion of the kill chain. Each morning the QWI students are given an Air Tasking Order (ATO). They then need to plan the appropriate missions required to fulfil the commander’s objectives laid out by the ATO and promulgated in higher level tasking documentation.
