NCOIC - Achieving the Vision and
Accomplishing the Mission
  Vision
 Industry working together with our customers to provide a
 network centric environment where all classes of information
 systems interoperate by integrating existing and emerging
 open standards into a common evolving global framework that
 employs a common set of principles and processes.


                                                                                          NCO

                      System C    Mission
                                 Our mission is to facilitate the global realization of Network Centric
                                 Operations. We seek to enable interoperability across the spectrum of
                                 joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational industrial and
                                 commercial operations. NCOIC is global, with membership open to those
                                 who wish to apply the vast potential of network centric technology to the
                                 operational challenges faced by our nations and their citizens.

NEER IPT’s key findings

    Apply network-centric principles
     to emergency response
    Everything over Internet
     Protocol: focus on the middle –
     what’s in-between?
      – Ensure broad band connectivity
      – IP standards in the middle
      – Systems, local networks have
         gateways to the middle
      – Translate to IP and to
         standards
    Focus on the middle – core
     services
      – Who are the participants and
         their characteristics?
      – What are they allowed to do?
         How do we enforce that?

  The NIF Guides Development of
  Net-Centric Systems




A Net-Centric Pattern provides composite guidance to enable a set of
   collaborative operational capabilities by:
       Identifying supporting technical interoperability capabilities
       Providing architectural guidance
       Clarifying the selection and use of standards and technologies
        to enable these capabilities and mitigate related interoperability problems.
