Networks in the Tactical Environment
Date and Time to be Announced
The observed manner by which consumers easily access and share information using Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) technologies is influencing how planners envision the conduct of 21st Century military operations. However, the environment that each operates within are drastically different resulting false assumptions. Though the concept of System of Systems (SoS) approaches are well reasoned and existing technology should support their implementation, comparing the tactical environment with the commercial reveals a whole host of unique challenges. Factors such as environmental conditions, dynamic network configuration, and server access along with the unique characteristics of each participating node impacts the ability to Command and Control the internal and external movement of information throughout the battle space. Even though each SoS and its associated operating environment is unique, using analysis and recent examples Networks in the Tactical Environment will identify, describe and help the participant better understand how these factors impact the 21st Century Warfighter.
