Abstract:

The Department of Defenses DoDs Global Information Grid GIG provides the foundation for net-centricity. The GIG is the globally interconnected, end-to-end set of information capabilities, associated processes, and personnel for collecting, processing, storing, disseminating, and managing information on demand to warfighters, defense policy makers, and support personnel. The information capabilities that constitute the GIG include transport, Web-based services, information assurance technologies, applications, data, architectures and standards, and the tools, techniques, and strategies for managing and operating the GIG e.g., Network Operations NetOps. By securely interconnecting people and systems independent of time or location, DoD can achieve substantially improved military situational awareness, better access to information, and dramatically shortened decision cycles. Our warfighters are empowered to more effectively exploit information more efficiently use resources and create extended, collaborative communities to focus on the mission.
