Title

An Introduction to Network Centric Warfare

Abstract

This paper gives a short explanation of Network Centric Warfare, some background information and technology that makes this a reality. It also provides an example of how network centric solutions can be used to do a kill Chain and its advantages over platform centric scenarios. NCW faces a lot of challenges to System Engineers interoperability, increased complexity, fault tolerance, distributed computing are all needed to be understood to make NCW a reality. The nature of network centric makes us focus also on wireless networks and how they can be used, its advantages, protocols, and later on two frameworks implemented by Sun, Jini an Jxta. Each has its own set of protocols, procedures and ideology, and both are being used to create very reliable networks with changing topology.
