Abstract:

A fundamental objective of NATO and one of the highest priorities of the NATO Allied Command Transformation ACT is to take full advantage of Network-Enabled Capabilities NEC to build a robust, globally interconnected network environment for data sharing. This Guide discusses how modelling and simulation MS can be applied to NEC, from Concept Development and Experimentation CDE, Acquisition, Training, Exercises, and Operations, to enhance military effectiveness and transformation, and prepare for the security challenges of the future. This Guide structures Best Practices of MS around Key Principles in each chapter, provides real world Case Studies, and offers evidence-based advice to achieve the following objectives 1 Ensure that allied defence capability programs are truly able to support future force capabilities from CDE, Material Acquisition, Training, Exercises to Operations 2 Document the principles in real world practice, for both military capabilities and DAT capabilities and 3 Provide evidence-based advice on how a nascent NEC can be influenced by MS from CDE to Operations. This Report documents 24 Key MS Principles in support of NATO Network-Enabled Capabilities NNEC of interest to Armed Forces, Governments, Industry and Academia, concerned about military and Defence Against Terrorism capabilities
