3. LandWarNet Transformation

4. GNEC Objectives (CIO/G-6 Chart) GNEC has four Objectives. Enable warfighting capabilities by providing one network to both the generating and operating force that supports all phases of Joint operations including time in transient while deploying . Improve network defense posture by centrally managing computer network defense with tools and applications that improve network defense practices. Realize economies and efficiencies by eliminating duplicative efforts and focusing resources on network effectiveness. Ensure Army interoperability across DoD by institutionalizing governance practices that prevent duplicative efforts and creation of stove-piped capabilities. Network Service Centers located in CONUS, Europe, Southwest Asia, and the Pacific will provide network services and capabilities through three components; Theater Network Operations and Security Centers (TNSOC), Regional Hub Nodes (RHN), and Area Processing Centers.

5. NetOps as Defined by DoD From: DoD Instruction NUMBER 8410.02, Subject: NetOps for the Global Information Grid (GIG), December 19, 2008 “NetOps. The DoD-wide operational, organizational, and technical capabilities for operating and defending the GIG. NetOps includes, but is not limited to, enterprise management, net assurance, and content management. NetOps provides commanders with GIG situational awareness to make informed command and control decisions. GIG situational awareness is gained through the operational and technical integration of enterprise management and defense actions and activities across all levels of command (strategic, operational, and tactical).” From: DoD Instruction NUMBER 8410.02, Subject: NetOps for the Global Information Grid (GIG), December 19, 2008 “NetOps.

6. APC Mission Plain English: Host Army applications, data and IT services in an interconnected set of globally linked and defended data centers. Warfighter Terms: Enable a globally connected Army to build and employ an informed warfighting force that can fight on arrival. IT Mission Statement: Deliver a standardized, global info-structure that is scalable, accessible, flexible and defensible. Enable streamlined access to the Army’s applications, data and enterprise services. Purpose: Describe the APC mission to different audiences Purpose: Describe the APC mission to different audiences

7. NSC Purpose: Describe how APCs fit within the NSC construct From an acquisition perspective, GNEC comprises all the areas listed plus more Three legs to NSC; areas highlighted in red are PM NSC responsibility Purpose: Describe how APCs fit within the NSC construct From an acquisition perspective, GNEC comprises all the areas listed plus more Three legs to NSC; areas highlighted in red are PM NSC responsibility

8. 8 What is an APC? Purpose: Visually depict the elements of an APC Mission areas rely on all the APC servicesPurpose: Visually depict the elements of an APC Mission areas rely on all the APC services

9. What are we buying? The graphic represents the way the Army is using IT (computing, data, and voice services) in support of LandWarNet, to seamlessly deliver the right information to the right user, in the right context, to the right location at the right time whether deployed or at home station. The Network Service Center (NSC) is composed of a virtual or logical combination of three interdependent components which are Processing (provided by the APC), Transport (provided by Regional Hub Nodes / Global Information Grid) and finally NETOPS (provided by the NOSC). We will explain each of the three major components within the NSC with a focus on the APCs. The large blue oval forming the outer perimeter represents the NETOPS capability which is the operational construct used to operate and defend LandWarNet. NETOPS is provided by the Network Operations Service Centers (NOSCs). Next, I would like to highlight the light green areas labeled as Transport. The Transport function is delivered by the Regional Hub Nodes in tactical environments and the Global Information Grid in fixed environments. These are the functions that transmit and carry data from the APC to the warfighter and users regardless of their location. The APC is viewed in three different tiers. The first tier, represented by the green box, is the enterprise infrastructure. Enterprise Infrastructure is the basic building block upon which all services will be delivered. These building blocks are the Facilities, HVAC, Power, Storage Area Network (SAN), Routers and Servers which are basic computing and telecom needs. The entire Army leverages infrastructure that is already in place to reduce the need to build or expand service delivery mechanisms and facilities. Sitting on top of the Enterprise Infrastructure block is a blue box representing the C4IM Services which are a standard set of computing, voice and data services provided to all authorized Army Users. On the left hand side you can see the four service areas identified in the C4IM Services List; Service 15 - Base Communications, Service 16 - Multimedia/VI, Service 18 - Information Assurance and Service 19 - Automation. These services are built on top of the infrastructure and are provided to all authorized users. The top of the three tiered box is the IT Portfolio Management structure consisting of the distinct mission applications as well as the battle command systems. Lets take a look at a few examples that illustrate the advantages of using enterprise APC services. Currently services provided as part of the C4IM are underutilized and underfunded. This is being partially addressed by the Single DOIM Action Plan, however, there are additional gaps. These gaps can be seen by the red box in the automation section of the C4IM services. The APCs will mitigate these deficiencies by enterprising much of the constituent provided support by leveraging the infrastructure already available in the APC. For example, as applications migrate into the APCs the requirement for independent support organizations will diminish. Therefore minimizing duplication of effort and promoting migration towards Single DOIM. Now, lets take a look at an example of an organization bringing in an application that can be leveraged across the Army but is not a component of the C4IM Services List. An ACOM wants to bring a collaboration tool such as MS SharePoint into an APC. In this case, the hosting and implementation of SharePoint in the APC will be leveraged to instantiate a new capability which can be used by all authorized organizations and users. That is a fairly high level description of the APCs but two main things to note are: 1) The APC is an II PEG funded effort that provides a foundational set of capabilities and C4IM baseline services. That foundation is extensible using other PEG/ GWOT sources of funding. It is a core capability supporting Installations as Flagships of Readiness and the Train As You Fight strategy. 2) There is mutual leverage of resources. The functional applications leverage the existing infrastructure and services. Similarly, as functional apps are hosted, any common services components are subsumed into the C4IM baseline. Some functional application deployments will be leveraged to instantiate new capabilities into the APC (Example ACOM brings Sharepoint). In conclusion the NSC is a combination of processing (APCs), transport (RHN/GIG) and NETOPS (NOSC) which is used to seamlessly deliver the right information to the right user, in the right context, to the right location at the right time whether deployed or at home station and this entire slide can be seen as LandWarNet.The graphic represents the way the Army is using IT (computing, data, and voice services) in support of LandWarNet, to seamlessly deliver the right information to the right user, in the right context, to the right location at the right time whether deployed or at home station.

Final Thoughts Sophisticated Problem Set Fiscal Environment Political Environment Cultural Environment We are in the ‘learning phase’ Getting our arms around the scope of the issues Need dialogue to understand where you have gotten “skinned knees.” Innovation required across all aspects of the program
