Abstract:

Joint Vision 2010, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staffs template for future military operations, identifies information superiority as the linchpin of the emerging operational concepts of Dominant Maneuver, precision Engagement, Focused Logistics and Full Dimensional protection. While the technical challenges to realizing these concepts are acknowledged, I contend the tasks required to successfully integrate the human and cultural side of Joint Vision 2010s information superiority are as daunting as any of the still unsolved technical hurdles. Currently, the human element of technology enabled warfare is not getting the attention it needs. The military must begin to examine whether current training and doctrine are sufficient to prepare operational commanders for the Chairmans vision of the future.
