Excerpt
Excerpt: Since the age of fighting sail, command and control has been a central element of naval operations. Across the full range of operations- from peace, to operations other than war, to war- it is our means of influencing the actions of our forces and imposing our will on the enemy. Command and control enables the naval commander to understand the situation in his battlespace, select a course of action, issue intent and orders, monitor the execution of operations, and evaluate the results. It is the primary tool he uses to cope with the disorder and uncertainty of warfare. Without it, organized military operations are impossible. In itself, command and control is no substitute for superior mobility and firepower- but it is the key to exploiting these capabilities at critical times and places, to ensure success in military operations.
