The goal of M.I.R. is to produce a product that increases the efficiency and effectiveness of small unit leaders, while remaining simple, straightforward and intuitive. Adhering to this philosophy has yielded a product that consists of a combination of elements that work in conjunction to create a functional, cohesive whole: a proprietary, re-write capable, paper replacement material, containing unit specific templates and text, are combined to form the product core. These pages are used with permanent marking pens, a correction pen, a bottle of correction fluid, and a cover, to form the dedicated interactive field reference kit – the THULS (Tactical Handbook, Unit Leader, Small).
