Abstract:

There exists today a symbiotic relationship between Space Control and Information Operations. Recent events in Operation Enduring Freedom show we are just now beginning to understand the mutual advantages these two communities provide. The overarching focus of Joint Vision 2020 is full spectrum dominance achieved by the interdependent application of dominant maneuver, precision engagement, focused logistics and full dimensional protection. Information superiority becomes the key enabler to achieving full spectrum dominance - Information Operations IO and Space control have become the pillars. Army Space Operations Officers today need to understand the relationship between IO and Space control, and how Space control can support current and future information operations.
