Abstract : Recent agreements between the Army and the Air Force have resolved long standing issues on who commands and controls the Surface Component Commander's (SCC) deep battle. This paper investigates critical failings in the current organization and doctrine for conducting the SCC's deep battle. It then proposes a possible structure and functions of a doctrinal cell at echelons above corps that would plan and direct this important battle.
