Abstract:

Combatant commanders currently do not have the best possible support from information warfare doctrine and capabilities that facilitate organizing forces for offensive and defensive information warfare. A balance of offensive and defensive information power is required and this research project suggests clearer doctrinal command and control relationships, integrated ways of employment, and sufficient information warfare means to enable a joint force commander to project dominant information power. The appropriate organization for combat will include a Joint Information Warfare Task Force to assist the joint force commanders planning effort and execute information operations.
