Information Operations Planning is a comprehensive tour de force of the latest concepts and technologies in the field of IO planning, never before brought together in a single volume.?The book covers all aspects of IO planning, including attack, defense, and influence, as well as planning for the logistics of IO.?You find in-depth coverage of concepts and tools that have been implemented in real-world IO planning, which have in turn driven enhancements in IO doctrine.?These tools have been selected as the basis for the Department of Defenses next IO planning tool, as well as the Air Forces Air Operation Center Strategy Development tool.

The book offers you both traditional and innovative ways of thinking about IO both now and in the future, while debunking many common myths and misperceptions.?This unique resource presents the mutually supporting aspects of traditional military and IO planning, weaving a seamless approach for planning both kinetic and non-kinetic options across IOs offensive, defensive, and influence operations as an integral part of the overall plan.

Highlights of this authoritative book include discussions on:

 Why Military Deception and Operations Security planning must be undertaken as mutually supporting aspects of the same planning and execution monitoring process.?

Why the United States is currently losing the battle for the minds in the Idea Battlespace, and specific steps to succeed in that arena.

Why the United States needs to define the Information Space as its own Domain, with an Interagency Service as the primary combatant.?

How to define and monitor satisfaction of political constraints throughout the planning process.

How to include computer network operations in exercises, experiments, and testing while not shutting down the event.

How to plan for, task, review, and document reachback support for distributed planning, and why the end product is a distributed plan.

Why IO is more important now than ever before in history.
