Navy Information Dominance Forces (NAVIDFOR) released an updated Information Dominance Warfare Officer (IDWO) Qualification instruction that expands who is eligible to receive the designation, and outlines new requirements and procedures for facilitating the program. NAVIDFOR's release of COMNAVIDFORINST 1412.1 is the first update to the IDWO instruction since it was initially released by OPNAV in September 2010. The most significant change in the new IDWO qualification instruction is the addition of four designators that were recognized as making significant contributions to information dominance. Another significant change allows, under certain circumstances, non-information dominance officers to participate in the IDWO program and earn the IDWO warfare designation. A copy of the instruction can be downloaded from the NAVIDFOR Website.
