Sample text

Indeed, it was the difference between the amount of information available to the Blue Force versus the information available to the Red Force (the information that is obtained from various sources such as sensors or scouts, and made available to the commander and staffs) that emerged as a key predictor of battle outcome. Because this difference was so important, the Blue force found (empirically) that limiting Red’s ability to see the Blue force was critical to winning the battle. The information available to Red routinely increased during the fight when distances between Red and Blue were small enough that relatively weaker Red sensors became effective.

This requires tools that will allow them to better understand inherent cyber vulnerabilities and prevent both future attacks of a known type and future attacks that have never occurred before, but which might be possible. They will need tools that will allow them to profile suspected attackers, creating profiles of identities, motives and sponsors that can be used to formulate mission relevant strategies. And they need tools that can help them to share knowledge of potential future attacks and defensive countermeasures.

In the military domain, commanders will also examine cyber options along with other types of both lethal and non-lethal effects at their disposal. R. S. Connors employing a missile that uses microwave energy to knock out its electronic systems, or to use a cyber attack to disable the command and control system? What would be the expected outcomes of these various options, what are the risks, and how long would it take to carry them out? These are the types of realistic questions that will need to be answerable and supported in future military command centers in order for cyber effects to be used within the context of broader mission operations.
