From the introduction: "DoD is confronting the most complex and competitive global security environment in decades. In this new era of great power competition, the Department must increase lethality for the Joint Warfighter, strengthen partnerships and alliances and attract new partners, and reform DoD for greater performance and affordability. As we build a more lethal force and strengthen alliances and partnerships, the Department must focus on the critical enabling tools to employ the Joint, Multinational Force effectively against great power competition. Effective force employment begins with effective C2, the exercise of authority and direction by a properly designated commander over assigned and attached forces in the accomplishment of the mission. In modern warfare this may be human-to-human, machineto-machine (M2M) with a human in the loop, or, with increasing levels of autonomy, M2M with a human on the loop."
