01 Jun 06. Exploring Network Enabled Capabilities to Achieve Decision
Featured Speakers:
• Major General Georges D’hollander, Director, C3, NATO
• Major General Francesco Cariati, Chief, 4th Division, Joint Staff, Italian Army, Ministry of Defence, Italy
• Brigadier General (Ret) Hans-Herbert Schulz, Former Bundeswehr, Germany

Conference Focus:
Network Enabled Capability is at the heart of Defence Transformation across Europe. It is the coherent integration of sensors, decision-makers and weapon systems along with support capabilities to create superior decision-making. This combined structure will enable military forces to operate more effectively in the future strategic environment through the more efficient sharing and exploitation of information. This will lead to better situational awareness across the board, facilitating improved decision-making, and bringing to bear the right military capabilities at the right time to achieve the desired military effect.

This enhanced capability is about more than equipment; it will exploit the benefits to be obtained from transformed doctrine and training, and optimized command and control structures. The ability to respond more quickly and precisely will act as a force multiplier enabling forces to achieve the desired effect through a smaller number of more capable linked assets. Network enabled warfighting force elements will have the ability to operate at a higher level and pace. Intelligence gathered from multiple sources will be fused and presented to those who need it anytime, any place and anywhere in the theatre environment.

Gain Valuable Insight From:
• Interoperability and integration in network enabled capability
• Network enabled vulnerabilities
• Network enabled capability: In support of the warfighter
