Abstract:

Currently, there is an information void for commanders, their staffs and soldiers while on the move. One of the Army Transformation goals is to deploy a brigade size combat force to anywhere in the world within 96 hours and have that force fully capable of warfighting, which means maintaining updated situation awareness while enroute to the objective. This is not the case for En route and Early Forced Entry forces today. Initial work is underway to address the shortfall, but this beginning is fraught with concept of operations and technical challenges. My research will look beyond the current static, Battle Command concepts and technology towards the future as it relates to the Objective Force. I will focus on Army requirements for airborne, seaborne, and groundbased on the move operations with emphasis on Enroute Mission Planning and Rehearsal. I will address the concept of operations for Command and Control on the Move C2OTM and highlight some of the technological capabilities that will help establish the Objective Force Initial Operational Capability in the 2008 timeframe.
