Abstract : This discussion concerns C2 adequacy for land warfare in the 21st century. Doctrine, organization, and equipment for present C2 systems are based on U. S. history through World War II. However, in the ensuing fifty years technology has changed with exponential speed. The dichotomy between lack of organizational change and vast technological development forces modern leaders to question whether or not the signal corps is best serving the army's warfighters.
