Pentagon officials want to "revitalize" military deception activities at the combatant commands, according to the recently unveiled defense budget justification documents.
With $940,000 for fiscal year 2010, the cost of this would be modest -- at least according to the budget documents released to the public. Details of the effort are classified.
Here is the exact wording from the defense-wide research, development, test and evaluation book:
Joint Military Deception Initiative (JMDI) is an initiative to revitalize DoD military deception planning and execution capability in the combatant commands. RDT&E funds will support development of next generation devices and capabilities.
