Abstract : This paper concludes a trilogy that began with The Copernicus Architecture in August 1991. Copernicus addressed the need and provided an approach for a new C4I strategy in the post-Cold War. But C4I is only a supporting part of a new kind of warfare, the doctrine and technology of which were addressed in the second paper, Space and Electronic Warfare, in April 1992. The Croesus Strategies proposes to solve three seemingly difficult problems that clear the way to build Copernicus and the other subsystems needed to conduct SEW. In that sense, all three papers are related. Metaphorically, they are different movements of a sonata. In logical sequence, the first movement, Space and Electronic Warfare, addresses SEW definition, doctrine, technology, and techniques. Copernicus, the second movement, describes C4I as a means of conveying information so critical to the conduct of SEW. This paper outlines the three programmatic strategies by which we will proceed.
