Abstract:

To fully realize the revolutionary potential of new military technology we must develop doctrine that incorporates innovative operational concepts as well as organizational structures that are joint, deployable, and informationally smart. Technological upheaval is already reverberating throughout many critical military functions. As a result doctrine must reflect changes in time and space relationships on the battlefield, the balance between capability and manpower, and the nature of command and control. This article examines these changes and organizational structures capable of integrating new technologies and maximizing their warfighting potential. To understand the need for change, we must first grasp its causes. New technologies are reconstructing the world. Just as military institutions reflect society, they also experience change. Computers, digital technology, and improved performance of equipment are creating enhancements in many areas. Tomorrow we will shoot, move, and communicate differently than we do today.
