Brigadier James Bowder
Commander, 1 ISR Brigade
• Outlining the 1 ISR Brigade’s objectives and support to British warfighters at the tactical level
• British Army ISR capabilities and its relationship with contemporary concepts of operations
• How do we harness the drivers of change in the land domain to maintain decision making advantage?
Success in future land warfare will require a more decentralised decision-making structure, where units at the tactical edge are able to rapidly assess intent and execute manoeuvre warfare in an environment characterised by decision-making compression and potentially degraded or congested situational awareness. As we move towards a more devolved authority of command and control, it is vital that we adapt our training and leadership development processes to ensure that the next cadre of army leaders are prepared and equipped to make decisions, even when the tactical or operational objectives may be changing rapidly. What steps need to be taken to ensure we can achieve this vision of decentralised C2?
