Abstract:

The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI, under the sponsorship of the Director, Force Development, Headquarters, Department of the Army HQDA, and the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff for Concepts and Doctrine, HQ, Training and Doctrine Command, developed blueprints for the tactical, operational, and strategic levels of war. The Blueprint collectively includes three separate blueprints, one for each level of war. The Blueprint is a common reference system for field commanders, combat developers, analysts, trainers, and planners who analyze and integrate operations. As such, the Blueprint helps staff and field organizations relate Army needs to Army missions and provides a basis for describing Army requirements, capabilities, and combat activities at the three levels of war. This report discusses the background for completing the final Blueprint, as well as methods used for researching and developing the Blueprint, the three levels of war, and each of the three blueprints. It discusses applications of the Blueprint and limitations and linkages among the blueprints. It also includes a summary of issues that require decisions by Army sponsors. Finally, the report provides the end product of the project as appendixes i.e., Blueprints of the three levels of war. Theater, Doctrine, Operational, Area of operations, Levels of war, Strategic, Battlefield operating system, Tactical, National military, CBRS.
