From the Paper:

"The Chief Information Officer of the United States Army is required to adhere to FISMA like any other government official. The Army CIO has the goal to improve the effectiveness and enabling the Army's interoperability with its mission partners. In 2009, Army CIO Lt. Swanson announced that the Army was attempting to go wireless. Lt. Gen. Jeffery Sorenson who is the current Chief Information Officer for the United States Army recently announced that the Army was going to begin eliminating cables, wires and terminals by going wireless. The development of technology will help to reshape the Army as it will make the Army more information based rather than infantry based."
