The three main pillars of Net-centric operations include: FORCEnet, which is the operational construct and architectural framework for Naval Warfare information age, LandWarnet, the Army's portion of the Global Information Grid (GIG), supports users around the world and the C2 Constellation/constellation net, the Air Force program designed to support net-centric warfare. The systems aim to promote rapid access to data stores that support situational awareness; effects based operations, and predictive battlespace awareness while providing for processing, storing, and transporting information over a seamless network.
With recent milestones in the net-centric framework and underlying systems such as GIG, this conference will provide perspectives from all forces including joint forces on the current challenges, applications and lessons learned from net-centric operations and applications. Focus will be placed on the funding, management and development of new systems as well as the acute management and security of information when transmitting data across networks. Progress reports on each of the individual systems will also be discussed along with the applications of net-centric operations for the warfighter, which go beyond the overview. In depth discussions on interoperability of forces and systems and interface-ability, will also be featured at this conference. Doctrine, leadership, personnel and materiel need to work together in order to realize the benefits of net-centricity. This forum provides the perfect opportunity to facilitate this growth.
