Abstract:

This paper describes key concepts and applications of composable FORCEnet, which is the US Navys operational construct architectural framework for naval warfare in the information age. It describes the concepts and architecture, in several categories 1 systems and general software engineering 2 networks 3 intelligent software and 4 network security. The engineering approach to implement FORCEnet is an example of rapid prototyping in which the requirements of the users reviewed periodically and frequently with considerable user input. Examples of applications of composable FORCEnet include the KWeb, which is a knowledge- and web-based system designed to present the common operating picture to all users. Another example of composable FORCEnet is the Knowledge Management for Distributed Tracking KMDT, which allows sensor analysts and commanders on ships to access sensor information collected on other ships and shore-based sensor stations, using intelligent-agent and web technology. Composable FORCEnet is designed to capture and implement changes in user requirements. It strongly supports the development of relevant and useful systems with up-to-date technology that will be responsive to the users rapidly changing needs.
