The Joint Staff envisions the future operating environment as one characterizedby uncertainty, complexity, rapid change and persistent conflict. The continuedspread of low-cost, high-technology information systems could soon presentthe U.S. with an array of technological peers in a relatively short period of time. Global advances in the areas of long-range precision weapons, unmannedsystems, and cyberspace weapons will significantly complicate U.S. planning efforts and could constrict U.S. military freedom of action across a number of  warfighting scenarios.The essential access challenge for future U.S. military forces will be our ability to project force into a heavily-contested operational area and to sustain theforce in the face of increasingly capable enemies equipped with sophisticatedanti-access and area-denial defenses. Over the next fifteen years, the impactof these emerging technologies will lead to an increasingly complex and morelethal maritime operating environment. Of concern, some adversaries arealready developing the military means to impede or prevent U.S. naval forcesfrom responding to crises overseas. In particular, growing threats withinthe cyberspace domain and across the electromagnetic spectrum could soonchallenge long-held U.S. Navy advantages within selected areas of the maritimebattlespace.Projected operational and informational environments are driving the need forsignificant changes and improvements in how the Navy will use and protectits current, planned and forecasted information-based capabilities in conflict.This U.S. Navy Information Dominance Roadmap, 2013–2028 was developedto highlight emerging challenges across the range of military environments,and to describe Navy’s advanced information-based capabilities required in theareas of Assured Command and Control, Battlespace Awareness and IntegratedFires. This roadmap is intended to help synchronize and integrate Navy’sdiverse information-related programs, systems, functions and initiatives tomaintain decision superiority and meet future combat objectives in high-threatenvironments. Achieving these advanced capabilities will require leveraging Navy’s intellectual, technological, human and financial resources across the Fleet,Systems Commands and OPNAV Staff. WILLIAM E. LEIGHERRear Admiral, U.S. Navy Director, Warfare Integration
