From page 1...
... These forces are now and will continue to be highly dependent on a wide range of tactical information and subsequently on the supporting information infrastructure. Future naval warfighting strategies are being shaped by trends we see emerging today, particularly within the commercial information services industries worldwide.
From page 2...
... Information superiority will not, however, be viewed with the importance it demands unless naval officers are rewarded, career paths established, and education programs put in place within this warfare area. INFORMATION INFRASTRUCTURE To establish information superiority, a robust, seamless information infrastructure must be established to allow future military forces to transmit and receive needed information from any point on the globe in a flexible, reconfigurable structure capable of rapidly adapting to changing tactical environments.
From page 3...
... In particular, because of the utilization of satellite communications to provide connectivity to forwarddeployed naval forces, special emphasis must be given to the seamless integration of terrestrial fiber, satellite communications, and in-theater wireless tactical networks. Integration of these diverse, largely commercially developed communications systems into a robust, protected information infrastructure is a critical issue that will require significant Navy Department interest and research and development investment.
From page 4...
... The Department of the Navy must support technology development within the domain of information content, including information understanding and recognition theory, where unique military applications are involved. Technologies for improving information content involve information representation, search, integrity, and reasoning, as well as issues associated with information presentation and human performance prediction models.
From page 5...
... In spite of the major contributions the commercial sector is likely to make toward satisfying future military sensor requirements, there will always be a subset of those requirements that has no identifiable, profitable commercial counterpart. Many of the significant radar, electro-optical, and acoustic sensor technologies that will be critical for future military operations will require Navy Department investment to ensure their robust development and tailoring to naval applications.
From page 6...
... Establish a clear policy designating responsibility in the Navy Department for identifying, organizing, classifying, and assuring all relevant information sources that permit information extraction and communication from multiple remote locations. Invest in research on and development of tools and techniques to facilitate this shared information environment.
