Title Technical Application of the Human Element in the Information Domain.

Abstract Information Operations (IO) are a national priority and a critical enabling capability for every type of operation conducted by the Joint Force Commander. Although IO is recognized as a necessity for future warfare, and arguably current irregular warfare that involves kinetic and nonkinetic options, it has been difficult to identify a service career force capable of integrating full-spectrum Information Operations. The Navy Information Warfare Officer (IWO) with core skills of Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic Warfare (EW) and Computer Network Operations (CNO), although focused on the technical elements that constitute the information environment, is best suited to 'subvert, coerce, attrite, and exhaust adversaries rather than defeat them through direct conventional military confrontation,' while protecting our own forces; and incorporate the remaining IO components of Military Deception (MILDEC), Operations Security (OPSEC), and Military Information Support Operations (MISO) into full-spectrum operations. The Navy should be designated the Joint Force Information Operations Component Commander to fully integrate IO into full-spectrum operations.
