The Australian Defence Force (ADF) yesterday released the updated Network Centric Warfare (NCW) roadmap 2007.
Head of ADF's capability systems, Rear Admiral Matt Tripovich, released the roadmap which outlines the steps to achieve the goal of a combined joint seamless NCW force by 2020.
Tripovich said NCW is about significantly enhancing the ADF's warfighting capability.
"NCW uses modern information technology to link sensors, decision makers and weapons systems to produce a decisive war-fighting advantage," he said.
"The NCW Roadmap 2007 provides an overview of the milestones that the ADF views as critical to the realization of our vision for NCW.
It will guide the ADF as it exploits the opportunities of NCW in its journey to become further network-enabled. The roadmap sets out measurable milestones in the progression to our networked objectives."
The roadmap outlines the development path for improved capability and identifies future opportunities.
