This article focuses on Millennium Challenge, a joint exercise hosted by U.S. Joint Forces Command in summer 2002. One goal was to develop recommendations on doctrine, organization, training, manpower, logistics, personnel, and facilities. From the outset of the exercise it was apparent that information operations could produce decisive effects in the fight. These efforts integrate military deception, psychological operations, electronic warfare, operational security, and computer network operations.
