Information Dominance ID is the operational advantage gained from fully integrating information functions, capabilities, resources and people to optimize decision-making and maximize warfighting effects. It enables the Navy s ability to maneuver and engage the enemy at the nexus of the maritime and information domains. The human component of ID is the Information Dominance Corps IDC and it has three core functions in this mission. First, it must assure the Navy s ability to command and control its forces. This requires the employment of information technology capabilities to ensure a that commanders can exchange orders with subordinates, b that the Navy can target and conduct strikes as part of the joint force, and then c assess the result of the strikes. The combat systems that IDC members control, from sensing the environment to understanding our adversaries to operating and defending our communications and networked systems, are inextricably linked to the success of this mission. Maintaining our operational and technological advantages depends directly on the sustainment of our human capital advantage. We require an elite workforce that is recruited, trained, and educated to pace technology, understand the maritime environment, and deliver integrated warfighting effects on demand. It is a formidable challenge, but one we are uniquely prepared to face. Developing and sustaining a viable and responsive IDC requires a commitment to workforce planning and management processes, delivery of a Corps-wide learning continuum, and cultivation of an identifiable, inclusive Information Dominance culture and ethos. This Human Capital Strategy constitutes the first installment on that commitment and provides a structured, balanced and deliberate approach for ensuring the Navy s IDC is qualified, ready and sustainable.
