How Will the Internet Affect Military Ops?

How Will the Internet Affect Military Ops?: The Defense Science Board plans to find out, launching a summer study to come to grips with the revolutionary military operations that include “Googling” and “blogging.” The increasing reliance of the military on Internet operations raises the question of what information networks will be needed for future operations and how to develop a “clear direction and defined doctrine,” writes Ken Krieg, Pentagon acquisition guru and ostensible head of the DSB, in a memo requesting a study titled “Information Management for Net-Centric Operations.” Krieg adds, the ability to leverage information and networking will be a “critical enabling factor” in developing better ways to work within the government and with coalition partners, since access to information and collaboration is the “lifeblood of military and civil-military operations.”
