151st Theater Information Operations Group
Soldiers from the 301st Information Operations (IO) Battalion validated their skills and their ability to work as a cohesive team during their July Training Readiness Exercise (TRX). The TRX is the organization’s last internal validation before IO Soldiers begin their mobilization process to ultimately impact the information battlespace across various theaters of operation. Capt. Iva Brown explains what is expected from Information Operations planners and who is likely to succeed in this cognitively challenging career choice.

MISSION

On order, the 151st Theater Information Operations Group deploys modular and tailorable Information Operations forces worldwide in order to gain and maintain information dominance by conducting Information Warfare in the Information Environment.

Globally engaged, the 151st TIOG is the Army Reserve Information Operations force provider to EUCOM, AFRICOM, CENTCOM, SOUTHCOM and USCC. Since the establishment of the TIOGs in 2009, the demand signal for IO support to theater activities and operations has increased by eight fold. The 151st TIOG executes six recurring FTNs, participates in up to 24 exercises annually, and continues to increase capability and capacity to support increased demand. With information newly established as a Joint Function and ARCYBERs recent declaration of Training Readiness Oversight (TRO) over all IO forces, Information Warfare rapidly evolves. 151st TIOG stands ready and available to meet current and future requirements.
