Mission command WFF
Definition/Scope: (FM 3-0) The related tasks and systems that support commanders in exercising authority and direction. It includes those tasks associated with acquiring friendly information, managing relevant information, and directing and leading subordinates. Through command and control, commanders integrate all warfighting functions to accomplish the mission. The command and control warfighting function includes the following tasks: execute the operations process, conduct command post operations, integrate the information superiority contributors - the Army information tasks, ISR, knowledge management, and information management, conduct information engagement, conduct civil affairs activities, integrate airspace command and control, execute command programs. The command and control warfighting function is the primary integrator of information tasks associated with information superiority. Army leaders use information tasks to shape the operational environment throughout the operations process. During operations against an enemy, they degrade the enemy’s ability to do the same. FM 6-0 describes command and control warfighting doctrine. THIS WAS PREVIOUSLY, PRIOR TO FEB 2011, AS THE COMMAND AND CONTROL WFF. This term eliminated battle command and changed from command and control.
