Information superiority is the foundation for Joint Vision 2010 and the method tor services to dominate the battlefield. The goal of IT21 is to rapidly implement a warfighting information network. To facilitate the engagement of information warfare, this thesis proposes that all officers be issued a laptop computer. This thesis discusses how a computer can be as valuable as a ifle or a tank, and possibly change the way the Department of Defense fights wars. With a laptop computer, officers can have 24 hrs access to critical information - turning all Naval officers into Information Warriors! When officers transfer, they will be immediately on line at their new duty station. This thesis uses the Technical Architecture for Information Management (TAFIM) model for strategic planning and evaluatesthree migration paths: a paycheck computer allowance; continuing buying desktop computers within individual command budgets; and leasing laptop computers. The alternatives are evaluated using an Information Technology Assessment Worksheet. This thesis recommends that the best alternative is to lease computers for all officers and have Naval Information Systems Management Center (NISMC) be the program manager. This thesis dearly shows that after a three-year period the cost of leasing a computer is more economical than purchasing a computer
