As Clausewitz states, the degree of unity formed by military forces and the geographical spaces in which they have to fight can create more than one COG
. He advocates tracing multiple COGs
back to a single one whenever possible.
The main contribution of this work is twofold: (1) to investigate an extremely low-cost method for determining the CoG
, with minimum hardware and calibration requirements, with an accuracy suitable for many practical applications, and (2) to provide a comprehensive error analysis which is validated through experiments.
(5) The nature of these operations has meant that COG
analysis often had to be applied more flexibly than the JMAP doctrine seemed to intend (for example, by being applied to nonadversarial actors within an area of operations).
Lawrence Freedman, professor of war studies at King's College London, put it thus: "First, countries, or indeed any political entities, or their armed forces, do not have COGs
. As a metaphor, it encourages a search for some vital core that holds the enemy system together.
was pioneering but as soon as other manufacturers see something like that, you'll find all advertisers try to up their game.
In line with this contention, some studies found that COG
fixations benefit task performance.
This study examined the concurrent validity of the GAMA using the WJ-R COG
as the criterion measure.
According to the report, developed by creative advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, the ad shows a cog

By merging Pape's concept of coercion with Strange's COG
definition and the JP 5-0 COG
descriptions, this paper concludes that at the strategic level, there is usually a "will" COG
that decides on policy and strategy and at least one "ability" COG
that is the agency/entity responsible for the main strategic effort.

Focusing on the center of gravity (CoG
) in both the nation and the insurgent group allows a way of analyzing and solving both the problem of an insurgent group and of an unstable nation that would allow the insurgent group to grow.
