Abstract:

The information function is changing the character of warfare. Peer, near-peer, and hybrid threats are gaining proficiency in the employment of information environment operations to achieve objectives across all levels of war. Many times competitors are leveraging information on the margins beyond peace but short of war. Technologies advancements, proliferation, and the cunning means of its employment are drivers for the U.S. military to innovate with information being the driver for change. The Marine Corps is developing concepts such as the Marine Corps Operating Concept and the Marine Air Ground Task Force MAGTF Information Environment Operations Concept of Employment to sharpen the readiness of the Marine Corps for future multi-domain conflict. The Marine Corps information environment concept has created the Marine Expeditionary Force MEF Information Group MIG. The MIG aggregates information specialties from across the Marine Corps under one commander, in support of the MEF Commanding General. The MAGTFs ground combat element will be at the forward edge of future conflict. In future multi-domain conflict the battlefield will be dynamic and multi-domain combined arms integration will be imperative. Does the current organization of the MIG support the ground combat elements maneuver for future multi-domain conflicts
