The Mission Command Network describes the operational capabilities that must be provided within the context of the Army Operating Concept. The Army faces a complex world which demands 'expeditionary' forces - forces task organized and deployed on short notice to austere locations, capable of conducting operations immediately upon arrival. These forces will conduct expeditionary maneuver in order to win against increasingly capable and elusive enemies. Such maneuver will employ joint combined arms, air-ground forces quickly across multiple domains and extended distances. Expeditionary maneuver will combine military, inter-organizational, and multinational capabilities delivered from global, theater, and local resources. Hence we require an approach to mission command that fully integrates unified action partners, and all elements of power they can bring to bear.

The Mission Command Network is key to achieving this integration. The "Mission Command Network (MC Network)" is integrated mission command and LandWarNet capabilities, which enable commanders, leaders & soldiers to exercise mission command (the philosophy) and integrate all warfighting functions and Unified Action enablers (the warfighting function). It is an inherent component of the Joint Information Environment. The MC Network allows commanders to develop and maintain situational understanding, maneuver across domains and locations, and conduct joint combined arms operations to accomplish the mission.
