Abstract
The ubiquitous nature of information in modern warfare has increased interest by the naval community in understanding the concept of Information Warfare (IW). While the control of information has long been a significant supporting activity, the aim of this paper is to explore Maritime Information activities as they relate to a “warfare” area; that is, equivalent to the other warfare areas such as surface, above and underwater warfare. In particular, the paper examines what it means to be a warfare area with emphasis on the maritime domain. As part of this discussion, we propose Narrative Dominance as an over-arching warfare concept that provides the framework within which information warfare exists.
