Network-Centric Naval Forces: A Transition process for boosting Operational Capabilities is a examine to recommend the dep. of the military relating to its transition technique to in achieving a network-centric naval strength via expertise software. This document discusses the technical underpinnings wanted for a transition to networkcentric forces and capabilities.

There has advanced whatever of a fable in regards to the warfare within the air among 1914-1918. the parable is going that, whereas within the dirt and gore of the trenches under any idealism and chivalry quick sputtered and died, within the purer air above the final noble heroes battled in one-to-one dogfights like knights of outdated.

Since the network will have commercial components, the standards will also have to be compatible with and often the same as commercial standards. These standards, and the rules and coordinated operational procedures that go with them, will be the only means by which full interoperability can be achieved.

In the large, however, the operation of the network will remain a closed loop in that information will lead to action, and the mission decision maker—the one who decides what the target is—will have to know that the target was engaged and the outcome of the engagement, as a condition for deciding on further action. In addition to having to be linked, sensors require continual improvement. Phenomenology in all spectral domains must be explored to exploit multiple sensing paths to the greatest extent possible, both physically and economically, and the quest must continue for automatic recognition of targets that are detected.

Today, however, all of these network-centric operations and capabilities, existing and under development, are evolving in an essentially fragmented and stand-alone manner. The focus is still on the subsystems or components of the total naval force combat system, and they are not yet fully coordinated with one another. It has become clear that unless networked naval forces are treated as a total system, a great deal of money will be wasted and opportunities to enhance warfighting capabilities will be lost.
