Abstract:

The military communications and computer community continues at an accelerating rate to outpace the warfighting support infrastructure. That infrastructure includes training, doctrine, and education. Given the rate at which new technology is being introduced, it is no wonder that the usual military way of doing business is now unable to keep up. It will take more than simple improvements in outdated processes to maintain pace with the rate of introduction of new technology. Innovative ideas and new approaches will be essential as the services re-engineer the processes. This book proposes new ideas about joint training for information managers over Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence c4I tactical and strategic levels. It suggests a substantially new way to approach the training of future communicators, grounding its argument in the realities of the fast-moving c4I technology. Furthermore, it is also clearly a purple-suit approach to this challenging issue. The Directorate of Advanced Concepts, Technologies, and Information Strategies ACTIS feels that publishing this work will help incubate additional thinking in the c4I community with respect to training and education for the next decade. Although ACTIS may not necessarily endorse every one of the books specific recommendations, it applauds the authors efforts to break away from the rigidity of old paradigms and offer new ideas for improving joint training.
