Overview Edit

FORCEnet is

the operational construct and architectural framework for naval warfare in the Information Age, integrating warriors, sensors, command and control, platforms, and weapons into a networked, distributed combat force. The objective of FORCEnet is to provide commanders the means to make better, timelier decisions than they currently can and to see to the effective execution of those decisions. The underlying premise from which FORCEnet gets its power is the network effect, which causes the value of a product or service in a network to increase exponentially as the number of those using it increases. Since most headquarters are already well connected, the real power of FORCEnet is connecting the extremities of the force — individual people, weapons, sensors, platforms, munitions, shipments, end items, parts, and so on. A main objective of FORCEnet is extending visibility and empowerment to the extremities. The greatest breakthrough that FORCEnet will achieve in future command and control is in the area of maximum decentralization.[1]
