Army newspaper: learning a new ability to win the information war is a profound change in
Abstract: To improve the “system-based information system operational capability,” we can not have wishful thinking that the information system must be “based.” “Based on information system” on the premise that “based on people.”
talking about “information-based systems to improve the combat capability”, has now become familiar to all officers and soldiers of a “fixed phrases.” Many comrades very Shunzui, written very smooth. However, the phrase “based on” word, we really understand? If not.
based, from the English “baseon”, meaning “built on the basis of ….” As the name suggests, based on information systems to improve combat capability of the system, information system is based. However, things often can not withstand deep question further: Is the information system will naturally have a “based on” it? Obviously not, “based on the information system” is simply “based on” people. As President Hu pointed out: advancing information technology to military training military training under conditions of change, the most fundamental and most crucial in improving the overall quality of officers and men to make greater efforts.
This is so because the information system is controlled by people. Information warfare era of military confrontation, people are not appendages of information systems, but pilots. Nowadays, “Let the bullets fly” has become fashionable “net language.” However, under the condition of the information, let bullets and shells flying, come to the silent bits and bytes flying, because the latter is the former’s eyes and nerves. Military confrontation, the real enemy, not bullets and bombs, but the information flow traction energy flow – cable is the fuse, the keyboard is the transmitter, the chip is the bomber. This is just the physical aspects of the physical device, hiding behind them, is confront the military, information warfare is the military’s ability to control and quality. Military information, the process requires us to constantly improve their own qualities. Without high-quality personnel, to promote scientific capacity building can not, can not even manage information system-based combat system.
However, for such a revolutionary change, some of the officers and men, especially commanders, not only the lack of a keen perception of the lack of deep insight, but also a lack of urgency. Some conservative, holding information of the steering wheel, but could not bear to throw away the cattle drive of the whip; some drift, catch the express train of information technology, mechanization also holding stop sign … … At present, more and more comrades are recognized that improving the system based on information system operational capability, the most fundamental and most critical is also in improving the overall quality of officers and men, in particular, efforts to improve the quality of information, to create the corresponding capability.
to want to see how far the brain, can go far on foot. Currently, the starting point of our men’s information literacy is low, too few information technology professionals in general, the relative shortage of high-end information technology professionals, will inevitably affect the information system-based system to enhance the combat capability of the effect, thereby affecting the mode of combat effectiveness to accelerate change progress. Why do we want to speed up, speed up hope, but in practice often “fast” does not it? Rooted in the quality of people’s ability to have a short board, is “not that I do have, in fact, can not have.”
visible, we can not have wishful thinking that the information system must be “based.” Easy development of physical hardware to improve the ability and quality problems. Information system based on the premise that people, based on the premise that human minds, that a solution “over the neck” problem. Information on how to improve the quality of the core, with a change in mode of combat effectiveness of new ideas, winning the information war to learn new skills, which is a from the top to the grassroots, from generals to soldiers of the profound transformation.
construction of military information, winning the information war. Changes in the way forward, we still have some way to go not less!
