19th ICCRTS [International Command and Control Research and Technology] Cyber Operations Model for Multi-Domain Conflict [open pdf - 854KB]
"Cyberspace is now recognized as the fifth operational domain, and future military operations will both rely on, and--at least in part--be fought within, it. In addition, the dependency on cyberspace of the entire national critical infrastructure will continue to increase. This paper proposes an 'analytic model for multi-domain cyber operations,' which, coupled with a comprehensive 'cyber operation capability frame of reference,' can serve as the basis for a solution architecture to provide the required automated decision support (ADS) capability. The benefits of such an ADS capability are highlighted in the context of selected scenarios for multi-domain operations, and an implementation plan is proposed and discussed."
