Director General Land Development Networking the Land Battlespace

  1. 1. Networking the Land Battlespace Lieutenant Colonel Martin Griffiths Deputy Director - Integration 1
  2. 2. Presentation Outline – Definitions – Theory – Networking in the Land Environment – The Land Approach – High Payoff Areas – Industry Opportunities
  3. 3. Land Networking Definition “The method of operation in which the automatic and rapid transfer of information enables the most effective use of combat power. NCW takes place when the force operates as a federated network.” Objective Force C2 Paper May 2003
  4. 4. Land Definition of NCW (draft) • Is the ability of the Land Force to execute more complex operations at the same or lower risk through enhanced decision making enabled by shared SA, under-pinned by robust networks, professional mastery and mission command.
  5. 5. Network Advantage Networked Current Army Army Capability 2006 2015 Risk (complexity ) (risk ) Complexity 1. The 2015 Networked Army can deal with the same level of complexity as the 2006 Army with less risk; or 2. For the same level of risk as the 2006 Army, the 2015 Networked Army can deal with
  6. 6. NCW Theory Key Tenets: • A robustly networked force improves information sharing. • Information sharing and collaboration enhance the quality of information and shared Situational Awareness. • Shared Situational Awareness enables „self synchronisation‟. • Provides increased mission effectiveness through enhanced lethality, improved survivability, and responsiveness
  7. 7. Networking in the Land Environment • Sharing information to achieve a warfighting advantage • Three primary dimensions: – Network – Human – Information Management
  8. 8. Networking Premises for Land • Mission Command is an effective philosophy • Able to share information if C2, ISR and Engagement nets are connected • Professional Mastery is essential • Robust networks and professional mastery allow the ADF to collaborate and share SA • Shared SA enables self synchronisation
  9. 9. Command and Control • If we embrace Mission Command – More information to lower levels – Knowledge edge – Empowerment to act • Opportunity for command functions to be focused on orchestrating / planning • Opportunity for control functions to be focused on self-synchronisation • Impact on Headquarters structures
  10. 10. Army’s Broad Approach • Joint Focus with an eye on coalition partners • Digitise the Network – Land 125 – Land 75 – JP2072 • Automation of processes • „Learn by Doing‟
  11. 11. NCW Roadmap • Launched at Land Warfare Conference 2005 • Declared Milestones 2009 – Interim Networked Land Combat Force 2012 – First Networked Brigade 2014 – Second Networked Brigade 2015 – Networked Joint Task Force
  12. 12. NCW Generations Current Interim NCW NCW Force Force Enabled Transformed Gen 0 Gen 1 Gen 2 Gen 3 S D S D S D S D SY SY SY SY • Manual COP • Semi auto COP • Auto COP • Seamless joint and • Extant doctrine & • BG structures & • BG structures & coalition COP structures doctrine revised doctrine evolved • BG structures & • Voice only C2 system • Limited C2 system • C2 systems doctrine transformed integration integration (BMS & integrated (incl limited • C2, Fires and Log • Limited C2 Grid BCSS) joint & coalition) systems fully integrated (analogue) no BMS • Limited C2 Network • C2 Network (digital) (incl joint & coalition) • Voice only (digital) fully implemented • C2, Engagement and Engagement Network • Limited Engagement • Engagement Network Log transformed (No BMS for Fires) Network (incl of BMS BMS Fires • Limited, stove piped Fires) implemented Log system • Limited log system • Log and C2 Integrated
  13. 13. Land NCW Development Methodology • Three Development Blocks – Block 1 - 2006-2010 – Block 2 - 2008-2013 – Block 3 - 2011-2016 • Four NCW Milestones – Milestone 1 (2009) - Networked Battle Group – Milestone 2 (2012) - Networked Brigade 1 – Milestone 3 (2014) - Networked Brigade 2 – Milestone 4 (2015) - Networked JTF

  15. 15. NCW Development Block 1 • Timeline – 2006 - 2010 • Milestone – Cavalry Battle Group from 1 Bde • Generation Goal – Gen 1 force • Key Projects: – Land 75 – JP 2072 – Land 125 – Land 907
  16. 16. High Payoff Areas • C3 – Digital Backbone - Section to Brigade (Voice & Data) – Analytical tools - commanders‟ decision aids with real- time updates – Combat ID for Land Forces within a Joint environment – Automated information and resource management – Network planning and management tools • ISR – Distribution of sensor data – Geospatial data integration – Geospatial dissemination systems
  17. 17. High Pay Off Areas • Engagement – Automated digital C2 for Joint Fires • Logistics – Load tracking – Logistic management efficiency – Automated logistic information flows • Fuel / ammunition states • Vehicle health usage and monitoring
  18. 18. Industry Opportunities • Many of the major projects are functional options which are largely equipment independent • Significant focus on: – Integration of legacy platforms and networks – Support contracts – Training – Doctrine development
