Battle Space[edit]

Battle Space has huge article potential as much as any other. It encompasses many theatres and should have it's own article. This is not a word definition, it is an article. List of marijuana slang terms 23:27, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Well currently it really isn't anything other than a dictionary definition. I'm happy to give you some time to improve the article, but at some point if it doesn't turn into a true Wikipedia article then I or someone else will send it to AfD. Good luck, Gwernol 02:52, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
Save your threats for someone who will actually be intimidated by them. Go ahead and post it for a vote, I will enjoy it ! List of marijuana slang terms 10:47, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
I'm not threatening you, just trying to advise you about the need to expand the article. I'm glad to see you've started doing this, and the article is getting a lot better. Best, Gwernol 12:35, 5 July 2006 (UTC)


Where and when did this concept arise, and who subscribes to it? This article reads more like a US field manual than an encyclopedia article. Michael Z. 2007-07-29 20:25 Z

Battlespace is NOT a unified military strategy. You only have to read the correct DoD/MoD definition, (which it appears somebody has bastardised) to understand that it is about situational awareness. Perhaps you should have all gone to staff college before bullshitting on military topics — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:08, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

The term "Battlespace" has been rescined from US Army use, although the USMC retains the term. The term now being used is "Operational Environment." D Vance — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:16, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield[edit]

IPB stands for Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield, based on the US Army Field Manual, Federation of American Scientists, and Mark Lowenthal's book Intelligence: From Secrets to Policy. I see a sprinkling of this IPB as "battlespace" idea on the Internet, but the major US sources say "battlefield". Is "battlespace" a British term? --Pat 05:02, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
