In January 2006, the San Diego Naval Postgraduate Cohort was tasked to evaluate a FORCEnet scenario which involved a Humanitarian Support Mission which escalated into an Expeditionary Warfare Mission in and around the Philippine Islands, employing AUSCANNZUKUS Coalition forces. The task was to study the impact of Coalition forces participating in the United States Navy FORCEnet Fn program. The goal of this study is to provide options, perspective, technical and tactical insight to each nation in identifying opportunities to participate in FORCEnet and the operational benefits that result. The San Diego Naval Postgraduate Cohort developed an architecture and modeled it in an effort to demonstrate enhanced collaboration capability between U.S. and Coalition partners with an improved ability to collect, process and share information for joint decision making and joint tactical employment of resources between U.S. and Coalition countries, and to fully integrate Coalition operations. The modeling approach focused on integrating a Sensor grid, C2 grid, and Engagement grid. As a result, enabled Network-Centric warfare for Coalition Forces shows a significant increase in capabilities. Joint employment of FORCEnet demonstrated Coalition enhancements by providing a scalable and composable Joint force structure.
