Abstract : With developments in information and network technologies, more systems began to be connected to each other in a network environment, and interoperability among them became a crucial requirement. To achieve this interoperability, systems should be adapted to more net-centric solutions in which the information is shared, rather than stovepiped approaches in which the information is for local use only. This paper will focus on the experiences of the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI) Command and Control team during its Network Enabled Capabilities (NEC) studies with the Integrated Command and Control (ICC), Air Command and Control Information Services (AirC2IS), and Joint Targeting System (JTS). The authors share practical lessons learned with the command and control (C2) community.
