Abstract:

This monograph discusses light infantry battle command at battalion and below with a view focused on identifying those advanced command, control, communications, computer applications, and intelligence processing C41 capabilities that will be required by the infantry force in the early twenty-first century. Current infantry technological development programs and experimentation initiatives will be examined to determine what efforts are currently underway in developing technologies which support the attainment of these capabilities. Technological shortfalls will be identified for future consideration by force developers, doctrine writers, and Army leaders to facilitate further discussion and consideration of whether such shortfalls warrant changes in current infantry technology development.
