Direction for the Future Army
As military science advances, the concept of future warfare is transforming into network-centric operations, in which combat effectiveness is maximized through the visualization of the battlefield overcoming the limitations of time and space in operating the forces The future concept of warfare is geared towards an integrated and simultaneous force employment by connecting all the advanced sensor-to-shooter systems. The combat effectiveness will be maximized by applying the concept of 「Network-based Simultaneous and Integrated Operations」.
The basic concepts of「Network-based Simultaneous and Integrated Operations」
Identify the enemy Center of Gravity (COG) through all-weather Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems.
In order to visualize the battlefield, all the available ISR measures will be employed in the extended battlespace. Targets will be selected to neutralize the enemy's intention through identifying and analyzing strategic and operational center of gravity.
Destroy enemy capability and intentions through the effects-based precision strike systems.
In order to destroy the enemy's capabilities and intentions, all the available forces will be integrated and used efficiently against selected targets.
Terminate combat through decisive maneuver.
combat will be terminated in the shortest time possible, through neutralizing the enemy's capabilities and intention by maneuvering decisively against the enemy's Center of Gravity (COG) and securing related objectives.
Neutralize the enemy capabilities and intention though information operations such as electronic and psychological warfare.
By conducting information operations such as electronic and psychological warfare, our capability and intentions will be protected and maximized while the enemy's capability and intentions will be neutralized at an early stage of war.
Seize the initiative in the battlefield and secure victory through the aggressive use of forces and tactics that includes the conduct of asymmetric warfare.
In order to seize the initiative and win battle relative superiority of the combat power will be achieved through the active use of forces and tactics for asymmetry effects.
Maximize combat power through protection and effective combat support.
In order to win decisively, the ROK Army must minimize damage through protection, and maximize the sustainability and effectiveness of combat power through providing Combat Service Support of right quantity at the right time and place.
