Abstract:

Information warfare promises to become a revolution in military affairs. If so, then not only must the technology adapted to military operations, but also organizations must adapt to bring the full capability to bear. This paper examines the nature of offensive information warfare and current doctrinally based organizational structures. Centralized control, linkages to intelligence, strategic capabilities, and security constraints are discussed. Based on these characteristics, alternatives to the existing framework are presented. Finally, recommendations are made for the framework of the information warfare organization of tomorrow.
