In line with its policy to keep industry informed about future opportunities, the Department of Defence has released an outline of steps it plans to achieve with the goal of a combined, seamless NCW force by 2020.
NCW uses modern information technology to link sensors, decision-makers and weapons systems. To improve coordination across the three arms of the Australian Defence Forces, Defence will develop a single information network. The new network will automate the transfer of information, much of which is transferred manually at present.
