I am very proud of all of our players who took part in the IWFF
World Cup, including captains John Rowlands and Scott Bendle, proud of our volunteer staff, especially managers Martin Ransom and Ashleigh Hopkins, and proud of our supporters.
The nature of the conflict over the past 15 years, combined with the focus on brigade combat team-centric operations, has resulted in an increased tendency for the IWfF
to operate in intelligence stovepipes that limit multi-disciplined collaboration, and challenges our ability to efficiently visualize and describe the complexities within today's operating environment.
For the IWfF
, this means our ability to fight DCGS-A has never been more important.
Therefore, to properly set the theater and extend the IWfF
network within the PACOM Theater, the 500th MIB-T is in the process of requisitioning additional network agnostic expeditionary communications platforms.
These speakers discussed a variety of topics such as command relationships, the S-2's relationship within the staff and brigade, and various other leadership topics focused around the IWfF
and the S-2 role.
A good BCT S-2 is able to communicate effectively the BCT commander's intent for the IWfF
, while incorporating the BEB and MICO's input to manage, assess, and implement the full capabilities of the IWfF
in any environment or scenario.
There is an overall lack of collective level training of the IWfF
, including intelligence processes using DCGS-A tools.
training events solely for the IWfF
and those including the other
With no single standard, the IWfF
lost the ability to have a common analyst that could move from one BCT to another and still function immediately upon arrival.
Determination Directorate Team for leading the IWfF
Megacities are fundamentally different, extremely complex, and present unique challenges to the IWfF
. The Army must learn how to adapt and innovate intelligence support capabilities to accurately describe the environment; then, correctly identify challenges and gaps, in order to define clearly DOTMLPF capability solution sets.
must be prepared to deploy and fully integrate as part of a joint/coalition team with multiple partners across multiple domains as demonstrated by the Army's many ongoing RAF missions.
