Abstract:

This thesis is an analysis of the critical information requirements needed by the Force Commander to execute AirLand Battle doctrine. It uses the 85 critical information elements documented in the Force Level Information Requirements Plan FLIRP as a basis from which a subset of 24, which were extracted by the Combined Arms Combat Development Activity, was evaluated. The principle sources of input of this evaluation were a survey administered to select General Officers and Command and General Staff College Students, and a thorough review of current doctrine. Among the many conclusions which can be drawn from this thesis are There are different perceptions between Division and Corps Commanders versus School Commandants as to what information is critical to the execution of AirLand Battle Doctrine there is a difference between the perceptions of Combat Arms and Combat Support and Combat Service Support CGSC students as to what information is critical there is a difference between the General Officers and the CGSC students as to what is critical. The major result of this thesis is the identification of a set of information requirements which are critical to successful execution of AirLand Battle doctrine.
