1 Topic 13 Collaboration Tools Enabling Objectives 13.1 DISCUSS Collaboration at Sea (CAS) concepts and technologies. 13.2 DISCUSS CENTRIXS architectures and enclaves. 13.3 EXPLAIN the purpose of Defense Connect Online (DCO), including the three major components and the Help Desk resources.

2 CAS Overview Standard Knowledge and Information Sharing Platform Navy-wide Architecture Navy-wide Web Applications Centralized Design Centralized Administration Coalition Replication

3 CAS Replication NOC Servers CV Server CV Users Shore-based Users Ship Users Ship Server SIPRNET and NIPRNET NOCs replicate together Decreased bandwidth needs Dispersed responsibility Collaboration servers at each NOC and all CVNs Connectivity failure = Data accessibility

4 CAS Web Applications Baseline Site (Distributed Input) –Content Providers Add, Edit, & Delete via Web into Shared Libraries Knowledge Web (KWEB) –Organized links to CAS Content used as a briefing tool Stoplight Charts –Graphical Status Capability CommandNet –Event Logging tool Sametime –Chat Client and Meeting Center (Whiteboard and Application Sharing)

5 CAS II Features Enhanced Site Customization Selective Replication –No Distribution –Limited Distribution –Distribute to all (optional) One-Click Access –Post to Libraries, Browse Libraries, Recent posts List Enhanced integration with KWEB Enhanced integration with Stoplight Max Size Limitation for documents

6 Collaboration at Sea CAS III roll-out scheduled for FY08 with newly developed CAS III user’s guide (NNWC) PRNOC CAS server refresh planned for FY08 CAS transition to POR scheduled for FY09 Voice and Video IP Circuits –VoIP requires ~26Kbps of dedicated BW –VTCoIP utilizes between 64-768Kbps –High latency and jitter experience with BW constrained users –Expect transition to occur in parallel with increased BW availability and ADNS Incremental upgrades CAS Transition to POR in FY09

16 CENTRIXS History Feb 02, FLTCOMs emergent requirements satisfied with COWAN capability. Due to funding constraints for POR NIDTS/COWAN, NIDTS/COWAN Lite systems were fielded. –Force Level ships NIDTS Lite –Unit Level ships COWAN Lite Sep 02, CLF/CPF directed name change from CoWAN/NIDTS Lite to CENTRIXS Blk 0 & 1. Configuration was designed and fielded to support IP connectivity and services for three non-simultaneous, coalition security levels. CENTRIXS Blk 0 & 1 fielding is in process for deployed ships in PAC & LANT fleets.

17 ASD(NII)/DoD CIO Instruction 8110.1, dated February 6, 2004, directed that each DoD Component shall “plan, program, budget, and execute funding to support the [Multinational Information Sharing] MNIS Program and MNIS CENTRIXS networks used by their organization, forces, or the Combatant Commands.” CENTRIXS Direction

19 CENTRIXS Program Description CENTRIXS-M provides secure tactical and operational information sharing between U.S. and coalition maritime partners CENTRIXS-M is a key enabler for Command and Control and warfighting readiness in C7F AOR CENTRIXS-M forms the network backbone and global infrastructure for Coalition and Multinational C4I interoperability C4I Interoperability throughout the Coalition and Joint Enterprise Remains Paramount Coalition and Multinational Interoperability is Fleet #1 C4I Priority Coalition and Multinational Interoperability is Fleet #1 C4I Priority

20 Enclave and COI Description EnclaveDescription CFE - CENTRIXS Four EyesExchange of information between members of Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and the United States. NIDTS - NATO Information Data Transfer Service Exchange of information between United States and members of the NATO nations. GCTF - Global Counter- Terrorism Task Force Exchange of information between United States and members of the GCTF includes over 60 nations. CENTRIXS-JExchange of information between United States and Japan. CENTRIXS-KExchange of information between United States and Republic of Korea (ROK). MCFI – Multi-Coalition Forces Iraq Exchange of information between United States and members of the MCFI. Primary coordination network for coalition forces operating in Iraq. CNFC – Combined Naval Forces CENTCOM Primary maritime coordination network in CENTCOM AOR CMFP – Cooperative Maritime Forces Pacific Primary multi-national coalition network in PACOM AOR comprised of GCTF nations
