Abstract: This paper examines some of the challenges of embedding information and communication technologies (ICTs) into the mobile land battlespace. It links a long tradition of research that highlights difficulties in deriving value from investment in ICTs to current efforts to build a mobile land battlespace. Two theoretical frameworks assist in understanding the complexity of these efforts. Lessons from research into technology appropriation and technology portfolios highlight the time needed to embed new ICTs, the types of support that facilitate change, and management strategies to reduce likely risks. These lessons are applied to the defence domain. Guidelines for achieving the potential inherent in the mobile land battlespace are provided.
