006150-The Directed Telescope; A Traditional Element of Effective Command 54 Pages 1985 The directed telescope or, more specifically, the use of specially selected, highly qualified, and trusted young officers as special agents or observers for the commander has been a fundamental method of responding to this persistent challenge. These young officers have been popularly referred to as the "eyes" of the commander. Throughout military history, the use of officers in this capacity has been critical in obtaining battlefield command information for the commander. The utility of these special agents, whether they are aides, liaison personnel, or special staff officers, has been proven in war after war for thousands of years. The directed telescope has survived despite successive waves of information-gathering communications technology. From the loyal aides-de-camp of the Napoleonic era to the British command liaison officers of World War II, command and staff liaison systems, an often overlooked technique of command, have played an extremely important role in successful command and control at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels of warfare.
