Doctrine in the digital age
A vast array of military knowledge is never more than a few clicks away with Doctrine Online
THE latest tactics are more accessible
than ever with the Army's doctrine now
available on iArmy and efforts under
way to make the most of new technolo-
gies for accessing information.
Doctrine Wing transitioned its collec-
tion to iArmy's Doctrine Online during
the past few months and has been updat-
ing a range of publications with the latest
lessons coming from recent operational
Doctrine Wing's Lt-Col Gavin Bourke
said available doctrine ranged from
high-level documents such as LWD 1
Fundamentals of Land Warfare 2011 to
publications "more likely and suitable to
be used by the people on the ground".
"These might include the Military
Appreciation Process or F89 pams we're
about to publish," he said.
"Publications on everything from
adventurous training to the Army at wor-
ship come through the wing and we're
trialling new ways to get our message out
This means making use of the latest
technologies, such as tablet computers,
for greater flexibility in the ways doctrine
is delivered and used.
"For example, LWP-CA 3-3-6
Ambush and Counter Ambush has been
earmarked for a trial electronic method
of distribution to better meet user needs,"
Lt-Col Bourke said.
"We're encouraging all members
to look for information in our doctrine
before looking at overseas references.
Just give it a go and if you can't find
something, ask us."
He said with the introduction of new
Workplace Health and Safety legislation,
commanders at all levels would need to
make extra efforts to stay up to date with
the latest doctrine.
"The changes in legislation mean any
safety incident resulting from a failure to
follow established doctrinal requirements
may leave individual commanders vul-
nerable to Comcare action," he said.
He recommended discussing points of
concern with Defence Legal.
