Effect-based operations; battlespace; understanding, quantity of intelligence information needed for understanding the information; “pulsation” of information at situation change.


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.
