The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

27 Feb. 2020 -- In maneuver warfare, a commander masses distributed forces to decisively engage the enemy’s critical vulnerabilities to remove his center of gravity. Success depends on rapidly understanding the environment and enemy to make decisions faster than the adversary.

As stated by General David H. Berger, the 38th Commandant of the Marine Corps, the character of warfare has changed. Peer competitors operate in the grey zone. Adversaries gain an advantage in the Information Environment by leveraging a proliferation of inexpensive information technologies while developing high-tech capabilities for the kinetic fight.

Success in traditional warfighting domains now requires mastering the Information Environment, which includes the electromagnetic spectrum, space, cyber domain, and the data that crosses them. Rapid data-enhanced decision-making, which increases lethality, defines warfare in the Information Age.
