Abstract : The Army Digitization Master Plan (ADMP) provides the roadmap for the introduction of digital information technologies as the Army transforms itself via the Force XXI process into a 21st Century force. The ADMP addresses strategies, responsibilities, requirements, architectures, acquisition, experimentation methodology, management processes, and coordination of digital battlespace issues in the Army, with the other Services, and within future coalition forces. This annual update of the ADMP establishes the overall strategy for achieving battlespace digitization and defines the migration plans of individual battlespace systems to the Defense Information Infrastructure Common Operating Environment (DII COE). The Plan also describes how the Army is working toward achieving interoperability with joint and combined forces. The objective of the ADMP is to put forth a specific and measurable strategy for digitizing the battlespace. Individual objectives include: (1) Identifying the primary partners in the process and delineating their responsibilities; (2) Furnishing the framework for Army, joint, and multinational interoperability; (3) Defining the Army's implementation strategy; (4) Describing the digitization architectures; (5) Detailing a streamlined acquisition strategy consistent with sound business practices and conforming to policies outlined in Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 5000.1; (6) Laying out the process for evaluating and assessing system migrations to the DII COE; (7) Highlighting the key support strategies and digitization issues; (8) Depicting how the Army Digitization Office (ADO) will manage the integration of digital information and decision support systems within the joint and multinational arenas; and (9) Providing direction for future digitization efforts.
