Abstract:

Networked centric warfare or networked enabled operations are increasingly featured with prominence in defense planning and implementation strategies of leading defense forces around the world. Central to these concepts is network enabled, knowledge-based war fighting that will enable armed forces achieve greater force optimization, self-synchronization, greater flexibility and efficiency of action as well as enhanced speed and quality of decision making. An integral component of network centric operations is an adaptive and agile logistics capability that will allow combat service support CSS elements to project and sustain combat power with greater speed, accuracy and flexibility and to effectively meet the changing logistics demands in the network centric battlefield. As such, there is a need to transform from the previous mass logistics model based on just in-case planning to one with sense and response capability that can deliver logistics on-demand and to provide the necessary congruency between combatants and their logistics supply system.
