5. Relationship to Modernization Plan Annexes

Figure III-F-2 shows the correlation between IEW S/SU/ACs and other Army Modernization Plan Annexes. Note that IEW sensors provide a significant capability in the Modernization process of other mission areas.

The long-term goal is for Army C3IEW functions to evolve into an integrated Battlespace Information System (BIS-21) which provides for the information collection, management, transport, and denial functions required in the 21st century. This BIS-21 concept is synchronized with the DoD "C4I for the Warrior" concept, which promotes the ability of a warfighter to globally "plug in" and obtain required battlespace information at any time.
