Abstract : The Army is keenly aware of and preparing for a future that portends great change associated with land force dominance. A hallmark of the future battlefield will certainly be advanced technologies. Inordinate amounts of information in real and near-real time will be the rule not the exception. The new challenges for commanders are multi-dimensional. They are predicted on the need to integrate vast amounts of friendly and enemy information in short periods of time by covering large geographic areas quickly. The new Battle Dynamics include Battle Command, Battle Space, Depth and Simultaneous Attack and Early Entry. Because of the greater complexity and the diversity of future operational environments, emerging systems and doctrine will incorporate: (1) networks for widely distributing information, (2) descriptive models that bring reliable clarity rather than uncertain predictions to the command environment, (3) flexible sharing of information and (4) command display systems capable of sending and receiving images and graphics while on the move.
