[] US StratCom bekommt neue Aufgaben: IO, C4ISR,...,

Was mich etwas wundert: Wenn Info-Ops bisher Aufgabe des SpaceCom war,
und SpaceCom seit Oktober zum StratCom gehört: Wieso ist das erst jetzt
Aufgabe des StratCom geworden?

Stratcom acquires new IT missions

U.S. Strategic Command last month acquired four new missions,
including oversight of the Defense Department's information operations
and global command, control, communications, computer, intelligence,
surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities.

Air Force Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
said that President Bush signed "Change 2" to the Unified Command Plan
Jan. 10, which assigned four emerging missions to Stratcom:

* Missile defense.

* Global strike.

* DOD information operations.

* Global C4ISR.

In his Feb. 5 testimony before the House Armed Services Committee,
Myers said the changes reflect "the U.S. military's increased emphasis
on a global view."

"With its global strike responsibilities, the command will provide a
core cadre to plan and execute nuclear, conventional and information
operations anywhere in the world," Myers said in his prepared
testimony. "Stratcom serves as the DOD advocate for integrating the
desired military effects of information operations."

Stratcom, which has its headquarters at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.,
and is commanded by Navy Adm. James Ellis Jr., merged with U.S. Space
Command in October 2002. However, it retains its space operations
responsibilities and its nuclear triad of submarine, bomber and
missile forces, Myers said.

Army Maj. Gen. J. David Bryan, commander of Stratcom's Joint Task
Force for Computer Network Operations (JTF-CNO), said one of his top
priorities is to help facilitate Stratcom's growth and increased
responsibilities by sharing his office's experience with cyber

The JTF-CNO's mission is to defend all DOD networks from attack, as
well as to initiate cyberattacks when instructed by the president or
Defense secretary.
