The continuing evolution in information technology presents both opportunities and challenges for the U.S. Navy. Information is becoming increasingly central to all aspects of maritime warfighting and is core to the Navy s strategic, operational and tactical missions of sea control, power projection, deterrence and forward presence. Defined as the operational advantage gained from fully integrating the Navy s information functions, capabilities and resources to optimize decision making and maximize warfighting effects, Navy Information Dominance has become a leading Service priority. In 2009 the Navy consolidated information-related programs, resources, and manpower in order to organize, unify and concentrate its information capabilities. This Strategy for Achieving Information Dominance provides the framework through which the Navy s information capabilities will be mainstreamed into the Navy s culture as a distinct warfighting discipline. The strategy focuses on the three fundamental Information Dominance capabilities of Assured Command and Control, Battlespace Awareness, and Integrated Fires, and sets forth the following major goals for the 2013 2017 timeframe Strong and Secure Navy Command and Control Persistent, Predictive Battlespace Awareness Integrated Combat Information Integrated Kinetic and Non-kinetic Fires and Information Dominance as a Warfighting Discipline.
