Abstract : The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) was asked by the Information Proponent Office (IPO) to conduct a Needs Analysis for the Information Operations (IO) officer. Information Operations (IO) is the integrated employment, during military operations, of IRCs in concert with other lines of operation to influence, disrupt, corrupt, or usurp the decision making of adversaries and potential adversaries while protecting our own (JP 3-13). The IO officer serves as the integration specialist for IO. The purpose of the needs analysis was to determine the training, education, and/or other changes to Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Education, Personnel, and Facilities (DOTMLPF) needed to meet future requirements for IO officers. Data was collected through interviews with IO officers and commanders and a survey administered to IO officers. Results and recommendations are organized by DOTMLPF.
