Examining Network Centric Warfare (NCW)
Examining Network Centric Warfare Training (NCW) Course Description
This two-day Examining Network Centric Warfare Training (NCW) offers an initial exposure to network centricity in US military service systems and programs from the warfighting edge vice enterprise. Information is power. In the past 30 years, the most significant renaissance in the art of war has transpired in the implementation of collaborative networks for and between military platforms and entities. In many cases NCW replaces mass with understanding. This course is a mark in time, and seeks to provide the student with some level of currency and sensitivity to service programs and also a candid perspective from industry. It also suggests where and what future vulnerabilities and opportunities exist within the scope of network centricity. This course is restricted to US citizens only.
• What are the foundations of network-centricity in doctrine and practice across the Services?
• What are the Joint and Service interpretations of NCW? What is the Joint Information Enterprise (JIE)? the Joint Operational Access Concept (JOAC)?
• Examine Army LandWarNet/Land ISR net and its components
• Examine Navy NGEN and CANES Programs and its components.
• Examine Air Force Aerial Layer Network (ALN)
• Examine -Some perspectives on NCW for SOF, First Responder and Industry at large.
• Understanding the impact of Space and Cyberspace on NCW
• The impact of unmanned systems and intelligent wireless at the network edge
• The Future. What are the next network transformational Legos® ®?
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
