Network Centric Warfare: Its Origins and Future

  title={Network Centric Warfare: Its Origins and Future},
  author={Arthur K. Cebrowski and John J. Garstka},
We are in the midst of a revolution in military affairs (RMA) unlike any seen since the Napoleonic Age, when France transformed warfare with the concept of levŽe en masse. Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Jay Johnson has called it "a fundamental shift from what we call platform-centric warfare to something we call network-centric warfare," and it will prove to be the most important RMA in the past 200 years. 

Network-Centric Warfare and the Operational Concepts of War: A Synergistic Effect

Abstract : The rapid development of information processing technology portends a change in the ways and means U.S. forces will conduct future warfare. This potential revolution military affairs


What is all this fuss about network-centric organizations? Is Network-Centric Warfare an “emerging theory of war” or just about technology? Is it possible to harness the power of information to gain

The Sheriff: America's Defense of the New World Order

Since the end of the Cold War, and especially since September 11, 2001, few issues have been more hotly debated than the United States' role in the world. In this hard-nosed but sophisticated

Remote Split

This article analyzes US drone operations through a historical and ethnographic analysis of the remote split paradigm used by the US Air Force. Remote split refers to the globally distributed command

Security Governance and Networks: New Theoretical Perspectives in Transatlantic Security

It is proposed that security governance can help to explain the transformation of Cold War security structures, whereas network analysis is particularly useful for understanding the relations and interactions between public and private actors in the making and implementation of national and international security policies.



Metcalfe''s Law and legacy

The world of networks breaks into two polar paradigms: most familiar is the Public Switched Telephone Network, and the 4ESS supercomputer switch, which is a vast, deterministic web of wires and switches.

Cooperative Engagement Capability

A revolutionary approach to air defense has recently been extensively evaluated within the United States Navy that allows systems to share unaltered sensor measurement data with very small time delay and with retention of precision, enabling the units of a battle group to operate as one.
