It means "Contingency Plan of Action Format". Ive taken it years ago from the FM 21-76. Not sure if its still in use but Ive found it very usefull for me.

Take any maps or local gudes you can find in your area BEFORE you go) with you and supliment them asap when you get there. You never know what maps you might find when you get there. A GPS and a good compass goes well with the maps.

My PSK goes with me or as much of it that is legal to transport or have with me. Can't take a knife or blade, lighter or matches; ect with you on the plane, buy some when you get there. Even a cheap pocket knife you can toss later when leaving, us better than NO KNIFE. Same for fire makers I adjust my EDC and PSK for the area I am going to be in.
Our most important survival tool is our brain, and for many, that tool is way underused! SBRaider

Perhaps the single greatest piece of recon for another area is someone who's already been there and taken extensive video footage with narrative.
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.
-- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
