Paper Abstract

The US military is undertaking an uncertain and far-reaching transformation in its adoption of a network centric operational philosophy. This transformation will maximize the military's reliance upon data superiority and decision superiority. However, we have yet to develop the doctrine and data insights needed to fully exploit the network-centric capabilities being developed. We require a means for assessing the performance impact of tradeoffs in computational power and network bandwidth. These network and computational management assessments would allow us to address issues associated with network-centric operational needs and insure that the right data reaches the right user at the right time. The research that we report addresses the development of metrics to assess the impact of policy choices and uncover the requirements for effective network-centric operations.
