One statement of the vision for future
warfighting is “the right data to the right
warfighter at the right time.” As simple as it
sounds, this statement has profound implications
for systems and software that are expected to
make it reality. To fulfill this vision, many
engineering, organizational, and technology
issues need to be resolved. Engineering issues include constant evolution, dynamic composition, and predicting emergent
Key organizational requirements include a shared global vision, understanding how constituents influence each other, processes, and legal and business frameworks. Underlying technologies required for Network Centric Warfare (NCW), such as Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and Model Driven Architectures (MDA), are evolving. We must understand what can be accomplished today and the remaining research challenges.
This presentation will explore some of those issues, noting things we know how to do now and those we do not. It will propose appropriate research topics for those implications that need further work.
