Abstract : With the evolution of AirLand Battle doctrine has come to visualization of a battlefield characterized by initiative, agility, depth and synchronization. There has been renewed interest in what has been termed the operational level of war; the planning and execution of campaigns and major operations to attain strategic goals. And we now anticipate a requirement to fight close, deep and rear operations simultaneously throughout the depth of the battlefield. The command and control system which supports the execution of AirLand Battle doctrine is one that facilitates freedom to operate, delegation of authority, and personal leadership from critical points on the battlefield.
