Military Information Networks as Complex Adaptive Systems

  title={Military Information Networks as Complex Adaptive Systems},
  author={Lee Dee Miller},
New information technology now permits a vastly increased degree of connectivity in military communication networks. This more connected architecture should result in faster response times and greater efficiencies in military operations. A potential downside, however, is that highly connected network architectures are more prone to chaotic behaviors. Unfortunately, these behaviors are: nonlinear, frequently counter intuitive, usually manifested only under severe stress, and difficult to discern… CONTINUE READING
