Abstract : The emergence of information warfare and its application to air and space doctrine will forever change the form and conduct of modern warfare. While history does not provide specific solutions that can be applied without modification to present and future situations, it does provide a broad conceptual basis for understanding war, human nature, and air and space power. This document provides the framework for exercising judgement and is a starting point for understanding what information warfare is and hit it can be applied. Like any doctrine, information warfare doctrine should be alive--growing, evolving, and maturing. New experiences, reinterpretation of past experiences, advances in technology, changes in threats and cultures can (and should) require alternation of doctrine. We must leverage and maximize the advantage of technology to harness the benefits of the information technology explosion, if we are to win the information war
