Network Centric Operations @ NCO - Pengenalan

There have been many questions about the Network Centric Operations in the web and in Parliament. Maybe we need a bit more understanding into the NCO process so that we can deliver suggestions or critical comments that have substance, rather than heresay.

1. Network-centric warfare, also called network-centric operations, is a military doctrine or theory of war pioneered by the United States Department of Defense in the 1990's.

It seeks to translate an information advantage, enabled in part by information technology, into a competitive advantage through the robust networking of well informed geographically dispersed forces. This networking—combined with changes in technology, organization, processes, and people—may allow new forms of organizational behavior.

Specifically, the theory contains the following four tenets in its hypotheses:

a) A robustly networked force improves information sharing;

b) Information sharing enhances the quality of information and shared situational awareness;

c)Shared situational awareness enables collaboration and self-synchronization, and enhances sustainability and speed of command; and

d) These, in turn, dramatically increase mission effectiveness.
