This article focuses on the importance of pervasive sensing in network centric warfare. Network centric warfare refers to joining the many parts of a military force through shared command, control and communications systems. So joined, these parts become a more efficient and effective whole. Information from persistent sensing capabilities is not enough to solve the information management challenges of network centric warfare. Pervasive sensing means flooding an area with sensors that an adversary cannot detect, but that operate well behind their lines gathering information with an up-close-and-personal perspective.
