Abstract:

Canadian Land Forces has produced the Army of Tomorrow AoT conceptual framework, which is intended to guide the development of the Army to the year 2021. The AoT framework provides the basis for the Adaptive Dispersed Operations ADO concept, which is concerned with the manner an adaptive and dispersed Army can operate across the full spectrum of operations while being involved in a Joint Interagency Multinational and Public JIMP context. The concept of ADO is about conducting coordinated and interdependent actions by widely dispersed teams driven by an operational design created to achieve the desired end-state. DRDC Valcartier has investigated concepts of decision support for a tactical commander conducting operations and having to modify the plan in real-time in response to changes in the situation. This paper describes concepts of decision aids for tactical planning and operational execution management appropriate for an ADO context.
