Network-Optional Warfare (NOW)

  • Vulnerabilities arise for naval forces using constant communications due to lost stealth and dependence on external information.
  • Emissions control (EMCON) and limited use of low-probability of intercept (LPI) data channels can restore naval covertness and tactical surprise.
  • Data compression and a well-defined signal book enable fluid operations across Network-Centric Warfare (NCW) and NOW.

Network-Centric Warfare (NCW)

  • “Seeks to translate an information advantage, enabled in part by information technology, into a competitive advantage through the robust networking of well-informed geographically dispersed forces.”
  • “This networking—combined with changes in technology, organization, processes, and people—may allow new forms of organizational behavior.”
