Synopsis: This unique electronic book on CD-ROM has a complete reproduction of the U.S. Army Field Manual, Information Operations: Doctrine, Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures, 314 pages. In addition, as a bonus, there are reproductions of over 100 vital U.S. Army Field Manuals covering such topics as combat, arms, operations, training, support, and dozens of special topics! Information is an element of combat power. Commanders conduct information operations (IO) to apply it. Focused IO synchronized with effective information management and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance enable commanders to gain and maintain information superiority. IO is a prime means for achieving information superiority. As the Army s key integrating manual for IO, this manual prescribes IO doctrine and tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP). It also establishes doctrine and TTP for the IO elements of operations security and military deception. This manual implements joint IO doctrine established in JP 3-13, Joint Doctrine for Information Operations; JP 3-54, Joint Doctrine for Operations Security; and JP 3-58, Joint Doctrine for Military Deception. This manual establishes the following as the definition of IO used by Army forces: Information operations is the employment of the core capabilities of electronic warfare, computer network operations, psychological operations, military deception, and operations security, in concert with specified supporting and related capabilities, to affect or defend information and information systems, and to influence decisionmaking. This definition supersedes the definition of IO in FM 3-0. It is consistent with joint initiatives. Information operations (IO) encompass attacking adversary command and control (C2) systems (offensive IO) while protecting friendly C2 systems from adversary disruption (defensive IO). Effective IO combines the effects of offensive and defensive IO to produce information superiority at decisive points. IO brings together several previously separate functions as IO elements and related activities. IO elements include the IO core capabilities, specified supporting capabilities, and related activities discussed in chapter 1. It also allows commanders to use all of them both offensively and defensively, as they deem appropriate. The assistant chief of staff (ACOS) G-7 has the coordinating staff responsibility for coordinating IO elements and related activities. This enables the G-7 to shape the information environment to friendly advantage and protect commanders and friendly C2 systems from adversary IO. Commanders do not conduct IO simply for the sake of doing IO. Effective IO is an integrated effort that synchronizes the effects of IO elements/related activities to accomplish specific objectives designated by the commander. It is the means commanders use to mass the effects of the information element of combat power. Offensive IO destroy, degrade, disrupt, deny, deceive, exploit, and influence adversary decisionmakers and others who can affect the success of friendly operations. Offensive IO also target the information and information systems (INFOSYS) used in adversary decisionmaking processes. Defensive IO protect and defend friendly information, C2 systems, and INFOSYS. Effective defensive IO assure friendly commanders an accurate common operational picture (COP) based not only on a military perspective, but also on nonmilitary factors that may affect the situation. An accurate COP is essential to achieving situational understanding. (See FM 6-0.) Most IO elements may be used either offensively or defensively. Effective IO requires integrating IO related activities such as, public affairs and civil military operations into IO as well. The goal of IO is to gain and maintain information superiority, a condition that allows commanders to seize, retain, and exploit the init
