Good news...US national-level policy and military doctrine, at Joint and Service levels, now recognize Information as a specific domain in which to conduct operations, paralleling that of air, land, and sea. They realize wars can be fought and lost in the information domain. Conducting information operations without effective opposition, defined as Information Superiority , can be as crucial as air superiority to the outcome of war. Information Superiority now stands as one of six Joint operational concepts and as one of six Air Force core competencies. AFDD 1-1 states, Dominating the information spectrum is as critical to conflict now as controlling air and space, or as occupying land was in the past, and is seen as an indispensable and synergistic component of air and space power. 3 This concept expands the battle domain formerly recognized only as air, land, and sea.
