Abstract : As a matter of record most senior defense leaders have acknowledged that the United States military is experiencing a revolution in military affairs during what has been termed the information age. The debate in this revolution is based on how the integration of knowledge-based systems into U.S. military forces will effect force structure and future conflicts. However, the indeterminate influence of information age technology on the means of conducting warfare will have a significant impact on the way an operational commander employs his forces. Paradoxically, the information age commander will find a greater level of uncertainty and inflexibility to conduct major operations and campaigns with knowledge-based forces.
