Conference Proceeding
The article presents information on the Wolf PAC experiment by the U.S. Department of Defense. Quickly producing investment options — here, the advanced-technology Stiletto — that can adapt to an uncertain future should be the Department of Defense's main objective. Wolf PAC's goal will be to perform operational experimentation that examines the increasing command-and-control challenges of distributed networked forces in joint sea-based and special operations contexts. The Office of Force Transformation is undertaking the Wolf PAC initiative to explore command and control of geographically dispersed, networked, autonomous and semiautonomous assets.
