3 “… NATO will no longer have the large, massed units that were necessary for the Cold War, but will have agile and capable forces at Graduated Readiness levels… [to] prepare the Alliance to meet any threat….” - General (ret) James L. Jones, former SACEUR View of NATO Transformation

4 To transform NATO Response Force (NRF) operations from a “platform-centric” to a “network- centric environment,” NATO Consultation, Command and Control (C3) elements, NATO’s two strategic commands, member nations, and industry must move beyond Collaborative Information Environment (CIE) rhetoric and a “business as usual” Cold War mindset as enterprise network stakeholders by implementing a federated NATO Network Enabled Capability (NNEC) concept as the interoperability driver that joins common interfaces and information services. Thesis

5 The Challenge: A Pictorial View Users MaritimeLandAirLogistics Network & Comm Services provided within functional areas Users / Outcomes Other AirTargeting Layers and ‘Building Blocks’ of services provided across functional areas to multiple users From this - “Stovepiped” Interoperability To this - “Gridded” Interoperability

6 NRF Concept – Two Envisioned RolesNRF Concept – Two Envisioned Roles  M odular, quick reaction force  NATO’s transformation catalyst: entry point for capability improvements NRF Principles (Relative to Capabilities)NRF Principles (Relative to Capabilities)  Deployability  Scalability  Rotation NRF Concept and Principles

15 NATO and nations will rely upon NRF as a focal point to operationalize CIE network enabled common services; however, implementing NNEC presents interoperability challenges in migrating stakeholders away from a platform- centric legacy environment to a network-centric force – a “paradigm shift”NATO and nations will rely upon NRF as a focal point to operationalize CIE network enabled common services; however, implementing NNEC presents interoperability challenges in migrating stakeholders away from a platform- centric legacy environment to a network-centric force – a “paradigm shift” Conclusions (1 of 2)

16 NRF in quick reaction force roleNRF in quick reaction force role - Can’t leverage NRF capabilities without NC3 bodies breaking away from stovepiped policies, architectures, and management approaches NNEC is intended to overcome with this plug-and- operate concept - Can’t leverage NRF capabilities without NC3 bodies breaking away from stovepiped policies, architectures, and management approaches NNEC is intended to overcome with this plug-and- operate concept NRF in transformation catalyst roleNRF in transformation catalyst role - Can’t accelerate NNEC evolutionary programs or improve NATO/national systems without firm mutual stakeholders’ national commitments to reduce technology and capabilities gaps - Can’t accelerate NNEC evolutionary programs or improve NATO/national systems without firm mutual stakeholders’ national commitments to reduce technology and capabilities gaps Conclusions: Role Implications (2 of 2)

17 1st: Regarding NRF’s quick reaction force role1st: Regarding NRF’s quick reaction force role - NC3 organizational bodies must reassert overarching CIS interoperability roles and responsibilities and focus on “quick wins” - NC3 organizational bodies must reassert overarching CIS interoperability roles and responsibilities and focus on “quick wins” Recommendations (1 of 3)

18 2d: Regarding NRF’s transformation catalyst role2d: Regarding NRF’s transformation catalyst role - NC3 organizational bodies should exploit distributed Alliance cross-cutting capabilities, integrating NNEC economies of scale where consensus is possible - NC3 organizational bodies should exploit distributed Alliance cross-cutting capabilities, integrating NNEC economies of scale where consensus is possible - Nations must have political will to invest upfront in network-centric initiatives while reducing investments to recapitalize national legacy systems - Nations must have political will to invest upfront in network-centric initiatives while reducing investments to recapitalize national legacy systems Recommendations (2 of 3)

19 3d: Regarding industry3d: Regarding industry - NC3 organizational bodies and nations must stay connected with industry forums such as Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium – implementing NNEC in the NRF is an intellectual teaming effort - NC3 organizational bodies and nations must stay connected with industry forums such as Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium – implementing NNEC in the NRF is an intellectual teaming effort Recommendations (3 of 3)
