Abstract:

Information superiority seeks to ensure that force elements receive the right information at the right time to optimally influence the outcome of an operation. Currently the ad hoc planning for force information exchanges does not optimally support early dominance and rapid mission success. This paper proposes that Information Feasibility be used in advanced planning of C2 information distribution requirements. Information feasibility analysis is a concept that treats information advanced planning requirements in a way that is very similar to that of other force deployment needs. An example is provided using a set of validated Information Exchange Requirements IERs. The paper concludes that an Information Plan derived from Information Feasibility analysis and based on prioritized IERs, is the way to improve advance information planning, especially in a coalition environment where predeployment planning is often limited.
