Information operations, network-centric operations and, certainly, effect-based operations have become very popular in the last few years. Information, with its importance for battlespace awareness, occupies a special place in all three types of operations. The objective of this article is to impart a quantitative evaluation to this understanding to the extent possible. This would enable the creation of mathematical models, by means of which to investigate different information processes in the pursuit of understanding (or misleading the enemy) of the current or predicted situations.
