Abstract : Current military technological trends clearly point to an unprecedented theater-level integrated sensor-to-shooter (TLSISTS) capability that will soon seamlessly bind all branches of the Armed Forces, achieving a synergistic capability greater than the sum of their parts. This TLISTS capability is described, followed by its operational implications in the areas of operational reconnaissance and intelligence, operational fires, tempo and synchronization. Command and control (C 2) and doctrinal issues are also explored. The operational implications suggest that a TLISTS capability will enhance the operational commander's ability to craft operational art.
