Omnipresent in discussions of military use of cyber is how cyberspace fits in with the other warfighting “domains” of land, air, sea, and space. This question is vital to several issues facing future security and force planners including military command and control doctrine and the possibility of deterring aggression in one domain with the promise of punitive measures in another (cross-domain deterrence).
Today’s posting features a recent paper (Document 03) by Army Lt. Col. John L. Rafferty, Jr., published by the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, on the interplay between the land, space, and cyberspace domains, and includes selections from the significant volume of US Government publications the paper references. The Army War College report, and the literature it draws on, provide a deep profile of cyber’s importance to the future “joint force”.
