Abstract:

Military operations are becoming increasingly reliant on a communications and information infrastructure that provides seamless, interoperable connectivity between all forces, anytime and everywhere. This operational emphasis is changing the manner in which command and control C2 systems are defined, developed and fielded. Communication systems can no longer be ,application-centric. Instead, we must define a communications infrastructure to support a variety of applications and missions. In particular, communications systems must be interconnected to create a network accessible by all applications and users. This network-centric communications infrastructure has been coined the Global Grid. In many ways, the tremendous technology advances over the past ten years in the commercial world are making the Global Grid realizable.
