This course addresses the evolution of Information Operations (IO), from its roots in early warfare, through recent manifestations as Command and Control Warfare and Information Warfare, to its modern conception as a strategy for conflict and competition in the information age. The course focuses on the present day formulation of IO as a broad range of military and non-military activities intended to achieve information and decision superiority. The course complements related studies in command and control, decision support, information management and knowledge management.
