DA4102 Special Information Operations

This course serves as a project-oriented culmination of the studies of those specializing in the SOLIC "IO track." Students are given a specific, real-world problem and challenged to find the place for IO in developing solutions. The goal is both to mobilize the knowledge amassed from previous study and to use practical experience to gain insight into the issues of how IO can support special operations, and how special operations can support IO. Another key element of the course is the requirement that the students work as a team, employing either organizational concepts they have learned about, or developing new ones that may be most suitable to the particular problem at hand. The course concludes with briefings to the sponsors of the given project undertaken. The course is conducted at a Top Secret level. Prerequisites: None.
