On 28 September 2012, l issued the Capstone Concept for Joint Operations (CCJO): Joint Force 2020. lt presents a vision for how the Joint Force of the future can effectively address security challenges going forward. Central to this vision is the idea of globally integrated operations, increasing the overall adaptability of the force to cope with uncertainty, complexity, and rapid change.
There is no better example of the challenge ahead than that ofthe information environment. From moving supplies in the wake of a hurricane disaster to ordering troops to the Pacific, or addressing the ever-changing cyber threat, the global dependence on information and networks in everyday activities demands our attention now. The approach to addressing this nexus of dependence and threat for Joint Force (JF) 2020 is the Joint information Environment, or JJE. What follows is my vision for the JIE and its reievance for operations within the context of my vision for Joint Force 2020 and beyond.
