Battlefield Automation: Army Needs to Update Fielding Plan for First Digitized Corps
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC NATIONAL SECURITY AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
Over the next decade, the Army plans to field dozens of new and improved battlefield systems through its digitization initiative. Digitization involves the application of information technologies to acquire, exchange, and employ timely information on the battlefield. Use of digitization on the battlefield is expected to increase the Armys survivability, lethality, and tempo of operations. The Army plans to equip its first digitized division by December 2000, its first digitized corps by the end of 2004, and its remaining active and reserve divisions and corps by 2015. The Army plans to invest about 17.4 billion for digitization from fiscal year 2001 through fiscal year 2005.
