Conference Proceeding
The U.S. Navy moved a couple of steps closer to completing the outline for its path toward force transformation this past summer with the publication in June 2003 of a 'campaign plan' for implementing FORCEnet, the fourth component of Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Vern Clark's 'Sea Power 21' strategic vision, as of September 1, 2003. The campaign plan describes FORCEnet as the architectural framework for naval warfare that aligns and integrates warriors, networks, sensors, command and control, platforms and weapons into a globally networked, distributed combat force. When completed this fall, the final architecture document will describe how the Navy will cooperate with the other services to achieve a genuine and credible joint data-management architecture.
