YSANAOYOA Maj Roger Roland, USMC, Ret. “Open Source ... They gotta Cream for that..” IBID.
“ Operational Architecture” How we do what we do With or Without specialized tools
“ Except....” “ TRANSFORMATIONAL TOOLS ” For Example: The RADIO - We can do things farther away from each other - We can have a much larger “frontage” - Effects over larger areas -Perfected by German Tankers .... Blitz
“ Software Transformation” INTERNET == Better Radio WWW == INFORMATION EFFECTS - MORE, BROADER, NEW DIMENSIONS TRANSFORMATIONAL?
But ... What can “SMART” Radios Do? Don't Care .. We're Gonna Win Anyway ...
OK .. Maybe we care, But ... What does “SMART” Mean anyway? Increase TACTICAL AWARENESS Increase PRECISION Increase SPEED Increase SURVIVABILITY
Can't we already do this? ... Not Hardly POSITION LOCATION INFORMATION (PLI) “ Common Operational Picture (COP)”
Stupid Radios Crappy Software ACQUISITIONS FAILURE MODEL POSITION LOCATION INFORMATION (PLI) “ Common Operational Picture (COP)”
YSANAOYOA POSITION LOCATION INFORMATION (PLI) “ Common Operational Picture (COP)”
PLI is about INFORMATION SHARING Current Systems don't share on purpose - Stupid security - Vertical Integration - HARDWARE focus - Do it WRONG BETTER “ Can't Solve Problems with same thinking that caused them” - Albert E.
COMBAT RELEVANT PLI REQUIRES AWARENES OF THE OPERATIONAL ARCHITECTURE
COMBAT RELEVANT PLI REQUIRES OPEN SOFTWARE INTEGRATION
OK – LET'S FIX THIS Information is a SOFTWARE problem Software is NOT a radio Radio == Internet Software == WWW
What does a RADIO need to be “AWARE OF” To EXTEND range through CYBERSPACE ? Operational Architecture.
What is OPERATIONAL ARCHITECTURE ? WHO WHAT WHERE WHEN WHY
DATA MODEL FOR OPERATIONAL ARCHITECTURE: WHO == IDENTITY WHAT == RANK, SPECIALTY WHERE == LOCATION ON PLANET WHERE == LOCATION IN CYBERSPACE WHEN == NOW ! WHY == MAKE A DECISION
MARINE AIR GROUND TASK FORCE ( MAGTF ) MAGTF SHARED AWARENESS COMBAT RELEVANT PLI TACTICAL DATA NETWORK EXTENSION - REQUIRES MORE THAN CONNECTIVITY -
WHY OPEN SOURCE FOR TACTICAL COMPUTING? BLUE FORCE TRACKER = FAILURE MODEL WWW = SUCCESS MODEL WWW = SHARED DATA WWW = OPEN SOURCE OSS = SUCCESS MODEL
WHY OPEN SOURCE FOR TACTICAL COMPUTING? Share Data – Stop Fratricide Coalition Integration Continuous Improvement
WHY OPEN SOURCE FOR TACTICAL COMPUTING? Fix Stupid SEMPER FIDELIS !!
