Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to describe the observed impact of electronic messaging on battle command during the Advanced Warfighting Experiments (AWEs) conducted by the Battle Command Battle Laboratory (BCBL) at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, from January through May 1994. BCBL, in response to the Louisiana Maneuvers 94 issue, 'Holistic Review of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence', had the mission to develop a prototype Battle Command Support System (BCSS) capability. This prototype system was expected to support faster, more accurate situation assessment which in turn would lead to more effective mission planning and execution in a digitized force. The experiments were conducted in the context of two Command and General Staff College (CGSC) activities, the Battle Command Elective (BCE) and the Prairie Warrior student exercise. Observations focused on students representing commanders and staff of the Mobile Strike Force (MSF), a notional experimental force.
