Abstract:

This is a study designed to further the examination of the tenets of Network Centric Warfare NCW, which hypothesizes that a robustly networked force improves information sharing, collaboration, quality of information, and shared situational awareness resulting in significantly increased mission effectiveness. This volume is the third of a three volume set produced by the United States Army War College in conjunction with the Office of Force Transformation, Office of the Secretary of Defense. This volume is meant to provide the military reader with two sets of insights first, an introductory view of implications of network centric warfare for the operational and strategic levels of war, and second, a series of six short tactical-level battle stories or vignettes that can be used to further the study of network centric warfare tenets and to illustrate the impact of new technologies on organizations, leaders, and combat effectiveness.
