This report of the operations panel of the Information Management summer study served as the basis for the full summer study report sections that included warfighter assessments of needs and suggested improvements to enhance combat capabilities. The panel examined the operational value enabled by information networks. Particular attention was paid to emerging missions, counterinsurgency, counterterrorism, stabilization and reconstruction, and response to catastrophic disasters. The panel assessed the state of knowledge management for information networks. Additionally the panel focused on information discovery, sharing, collaboration, visualization, and storage for all missions and users. In addition, the elements of a Combat Information Capability CIC were developed and described. The panels principal focus was on warfighters needs as viewed through the eyes of those who experienced combat operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. This perspective helped the study members appreciate the value of a CIC both as kludged in todays combat environment and desired for the future.
