THE MULTIDOMAIN APPROACH WITHIN LAND FORCES’ OPERATIONS

  • Paul TUDORACHE Land Forces Academy

Abstract

The frequency of operational changes, which are often unpredictable, and the difficulty of addressing the challenges posed by them represent sufficient motivational factors to trigger the Land Forces’ adaptation to the requirements of the operational environments. For these reasons, the article aims to highlight the foundation of a new operational approach able to ensure for Land Forces’ military structures the augmentation of their combat power and also the possibility to transcend the traditional approach of the military operation to a multidomain one, much more suitable to the context of contemporary and future operational environments. Also, highlighting the attributes necessary for commanders, staff and subordinate structures, as well as analyzing the operational implications for Land Forces’ military structures are the primary objectives which are circumscribed to the purpose of this research.
