THEME AND SESSION TOPICS THEME: FULL SPECTRUM OPERATIONS FOR FUTURE CONFLICTS AND HOMELAND DEFENSE The FiestaCrow 2003 theme will draw on current world events and actions related to the counter-terrorism conflicts as well as the heightened interest in Homeland Defense of the United States. After the events of Sep 11, new interest and focus has evolved on the use of Information Warfare (IW) to support full spectrum operations. Increased emphasis on areas such as integrated air, space, and information operations; effects based operations (both defensive and offensive); the weaponization process for IW, and expanded use of the perception management portions of IW are all worth exploring through the technical track of FiestaCrow 2003. Session 1: Effects based operations and Information Operations. Information Operations (IO) and Information Warfare (IW) are enablers to the overall mission plan developed for theater operations. In today's environment, the Combatant Commander is building a plan to accomplish specific objectives and complete planning guidance. To this end every task, sub-task, and action should provide some impact (effect) to the mission. IO/IW expands the range of options available to the Combatant Commander allowing both kinetic and non-kinetic options as well as short term as well as long term effects. This track will investigate the role of IO/IW in effects-based offensive and defensive operational planning. Session 2: Information Operations and the role of strategic influence and perception management. US adversaries have made excellent use of perception management in every operation conducted over the past 15 years. This session will review past attempts at using the perception management aspect of Information Operations as well as look to the future uses of this powerful tool. The use of PSYOPS, Deception, Counter-Deception, Public Affairs, and more will be examined in this track. Session 3: IO/IW in support of Homeland Defense. What role can and is the military playing? Track will investigate the support that the military has and continues to provide to the other elements of government post 9-11. This includes looking at intelligence support, technology, and lessons learned. The track will consider support at the national, state, and local levels.
