Multi-Domain Operations describes how U.S. Army forces, as part of the Joint Force, will militarily compete with, penetrate, dis-integrate, and exploit our adversaries in the future. To accomplish this, the Army must develop or improve capabilities that contribute cross-domain options within the Joint Force to “set the theater” (i.e., establish and maintain conditions to seize the initiative and retain freedom of action in the theater of operation). Key amongst these required Army capability sets are computer networks that enable our commanders and staffs at each echelon to visualize and command a battle in all domains, the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS), and the information environment, converging organic and external capabilities at decisive spaces.
