Abstract:

This article discusses the Navys development of the C4I system Copernicus. The Navys goal is to make Copernicus the pillar for Naval C4I responsive to warfighers to field these systems quickly to capitalize on advances in technology and to shape Naval doctrine to reflect these changes. Designed as a user-centered C4I architecture it provided a blueprint for capturing technological change. It answered critical C4I problems and articulated the essence of modern command and control.
