ABSTRACT

Department of the Navy Information Superiority Vision   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Introduction: "War is intrinsically unpredictable. We reduce the fog of war by gathering information. We increase the enemy's friction by creating uncertainty. In maneuver warfare, a commander masses distributed forces to decisively engage the enemy's critical vulnerabilities to remove his center of gravity. Success depends on rapidly understanding the environment and enemy to make decisions faster than the adversary. [...] Information Superiority is delivering the right information to the right hands, ready to observe, orient, decide, and act faster than the adversary. It provides freedom of action within the Information Environment for friendly forces and prevents interference by the opposing force. As noted by Admiral Michael M. Gilday, the 32nd Chief of Naval Operations, in the Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority, our Fleet will be a potent, formidable force that competes around the world every day, deterring those who would challenge us while reassuring our allies and partners. Commanders must maintain decision-making superiority and expand our digital competitive advantage."
