The Cyber Defense Review

ABOUT THE CDR

The Cyber Defense Review (CDR) journal is a scholarly effort from the Army Cyber Institute (ACI) at West Point. The CDR generates an intellectual multidisciplinary dialogue through thought provoking scholarly articles and essays on the strategic, operational, and tactical aspects of the cyber domain. The CDR breaks down barriers and fosters innovative solutions to global cybersecurity challenges. The CDR compiles perspectives from preeminent thinkers across the government, industry, and academia regarding potential challenges, impacts, and initiatives for consideration as we solve over-the-horizon problems for the Army and the Nation.

Nonsimplicity: The Warrior’s Way

Our world is complex – uncertain, irrational, chaotic, foggy, and full of paradox. The U.S. military must become nonsimple and agile to best serve the Nation. That means being able to meet its missions in all their forms; major conflict, full-spectrum combat, cyber and information warfare, asymmetric and unconventional warfare, disaster relief, stability operations, and cognitive challenges. This book discusses and explains in a nontechnical and informal style how the U.S. military can grow and change to prepare itself for the future. Modern warriors will need new cognitive and leadership skills to adapt their thinking and planning for the approaching deceptions and paradoxes that easily confuse and defeat industrial age systems. The information age military requires new talents and a combination of warriors that include data analysts, complex problem solvers, cyber experts, information scientists, network scientists, roboticists, and interdisciplinary modelers. The authors highlight the roles that new science, especially artificial intelligence (AI), will play in the future of military operations. Nonsimplicity: The Warrior’s Way describes the strategies, tactics, doctrine, tools, systems, and weapons that the modern warriors need to develop, refine, and use for mission command, network-centric warfare, multidomain operations, adaptive operations, and a hyperwar-based OODA loop. The authors conclude their proposed modernization of the U.S. military by recommending a new set of Information Age Principles of War
