Network Centric Warfare
Definition/Scope: (FM 3-04.11) Network-centric warfare enables the Army and other U.S. forces to achieve an advantage through improved information sharing. The ability to develop and leverage this information advantage and use it to achieve increased combat power is key to success of the aviation brigade. Networking the force into a single virtual infosphere provides the warfighter with a distinct information advantage. (Signal) The term network-centric warfare broadly describes the combination of strategies, emerging tactics, techniques, and procedures, and organizations that a fully or even a partially networked force can employ to create a decisive warfighting advantage.
