Paper Abstract

The recent profound change in the geo-political alignment of nations, fall of Soviet Communism, economic reform at home, lessons learned from Operation DESERT STORM, and increased reliance on the military to execute Operations Other Than War (OOTW), has resulted in a Modernization renaissance throughout the Department of the Defense. Focused by a diminished strategic threat and reduced budget, the Army must tackle the challenge of realism and accurate Comand and Control capabilities across the entire spectrum of the Synthetic Environment. To accomplish this, as the DoD lead for DIS, it has formulated many new modernization strategies during the last three years to ensure its premier status as the world’s Dominant Landforce into the 21s1 Century. Responding to the National Military Strategy, the Army has established five modernization objectives that are necessary to ensure future sustainment of the warfighting force over the next decade.
