Abstract:

This paper seeks to analyze the command and control issues an sing from the advent of NCW. While information superiority is not a new concept, the blazing speed of advancement in information technologies have brought about dramatic changes to other lifestyles and profound changes in the conduct of modern warfare. This leads to the birth of Network Centric Warfare. NCW offers great opportunities to dramatically enhance combat prowess by establishing shared situational awareness, increasing speed of command, improving systems lethality and survivability, and enabling greater flexibility through self synchronization. However, these revolutionary changes in NCW do not depend on technology alone. In order to harness the full benefits of NCW, the full span of elements ranging from organization, doctrine operational concepts to training must co-evolve.
