2 Prosecuting Difficult Targets

3 Time Sensitive Targeting  The problem-space  Threat profile  Politics  Weapons  The solution-space  Enabling technology  Coalition operations 

4 TRIDENT WARRIOR Architecture

5 TRIDENT WARRIOR – HEADLINE LESSONS  Large Joint and Combined ISTAR networks at high maturity  Networks better than stovepipes  Commanders can have actionable target data in low order timescales  Target resolution is highly accurate  Networks find what single platforms miss

6 HOWEVER….KEY ISSUES  Conceptual  Security  Architectures  Procurement processes

7 CONCEPTS  Aligning Concepts and TTPs  Policies  Rules of Engagement  Inter-Service issues  Sequencing network assets with tactical events  Networks have an optimal configuration  Geometry  Electro-magnetic coverage  Time Its not about the technology…stupid!

8 SECURITY  Security is on critical path  Security gatekeepers need to recognise strategies such as NEC  Long lead times  Strategic to tactical domains  TSTs = JFC priority targets The desire to share…

9 ARCHITECTURES “An architect is the drawer of dreams…” Grace McGarvie  Turning Dreams into Capability  Focus on operational Analysis  Bring work strands together  Project managers role  Service Orientation  Business processes  Solution not a concept  Central role  Technology road-maps  Standards and protocols Virtual Communication Path (Dynamic Path Creation) Target ID Service Network Configuration Control Electronic Picture Compilation Mission Management Correlation & Data Fusion Mission Monitoring Collection Steerage (retask) Synchronisation Collaborative Mission Planning System protection Distributed Database Meta-Data Catalogue GMTIIMINTHUMINTAMTIOSCINTMASINTELINT

10 Procurement Processes  Spiral Acquisition  Proof  Financial straight jacket  Reciprocal altruism  Newtonian cause and effect vs organic modification  Approvals processes  Balancing experimentation with exploitation  Appropriate sovereignty

11 What next?  Portfolio manage existing programmes  Be more financially transparent  Stop talking about SOA until we have defined what is meant by it  Align coalition business processes  Architectures  Use as a business tool  Understand how to fight as a network  Exploit already mature technologies

12 Time Sensitive Targeting  Additional and expanded target set available to the Commander  Robust C2 procedures required  Rupert Smith’s vision of ‘ …fighting amongst the people…’  Precision  Timeliness  Decision-making  Future balance between time-sensitive and routine targets  Does EBO make everything a TST?  Why drop a bridge until you need to?  Event triggers effect
