Abstract:

Tremendous learning opportunities presently exist to understand how to realize net-centric operations. The ability to share information to and from the tactical edge will allow operators to work in more dispersed environments while taking decisive, collective actions. However, to realize this vision there are significant ST issues that must be resolved. Possibilities of net-behavior must be better understood in order to shape future DoD net-centric systems technologies and operations concepts, to define with stability the defense industry after next, and -- centrally -- to develop the future tactics, techniques, and procedures that will enable net-centric advantages to be effected at the tactical, operational and ultimately strategic levels. Near-term success will be realized by proceeding with scenario-driven experimentally-based tiered systems development and demonstration activities that are co-evolved in small development cells staffed with cohesive teams of Service Lab technologists and OperationalTactical war fighters who are chartered to work collaboratively for four to five consecutive years.
