Consortium Vision and Mission
Responding to the Need

  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.

   of increased levels of interoperability within, and amongst, all levels
   of government of the United States and its allies involved in Joint,
   Interagency and Multinational (JIM) operations.

Consortium Concept of Operations

 The primary objective of the Consortium is to better enable
   transformation through NCO by helping our government clients identify
   common existing and emerging open standards, processes and
   principles, together with their patterns of use and interoperability.

 The Consortium will achieve this objective:
    – Through the use of commercial and defense best practices, and
    – By leveraging other activities related to increasing interoperability in a
      network centric environment.

 The Consortium will also act as an advocate for transformation and
   network centricity and help increase their adoption throughout industry
   and governments alike.

Consortium Value Proposition
Consortium Efforts Will…

 Increase interoperability within and among systems involved in
    Joint, Interagency and Multinational operations
   Lower development costs and increase commonality of design in
    future systems – tailored standards and best practices
   Improve force readiness through more rapid fielding of network
    centric systems – leverage technical “lessons learned”
   Reduce systems cost and sustainability through re-use and
    commonality – facilitate ease of integration, upgrade, and support
   Reduce Development Risk by Identifying the common
    components needed for the network centric environment – Develop
    them where none exist
   Improve Force Effectiveness through new, more focused
    development on domain specific capabilities for the Warfighter

Description (Chair – Mark Bowler, Boeing)

 Charter
   – Work with customers to develop a secure interoperability framework that
     enables increasing degrees of network-centric operations.
 Key Activities:
   – Create an NCOIC Interoperability Framework (NIF) to define the applications,
     data and communications elements required to design and evaluate NCW
     systems with respect to interoperability
   – Create a Network Centric Analysis Tool (NCAT) to provide for a common basis
     to analyze architectures and initiatives
   – Review the various government initiatives with respect to NCO interoperability
   – Examine Mobility with regard to Interoperability needs and areas for
   – Review Open Standards and make usage recommendations relative to

Architecture & Standards Analysis Team
NCOIC Interoperability Framework (NIF) WG

  Charter
    – Develop the NCOIC Interoperability Framework (NIF), Operational
      Decompositions (ODs), and Protocol Functional Collections (PFCs)
    – The NIF provides a Systems Engineering framework for vendors
      developing components of the NCO environment to foster communications

  Key Activities
    – Describe and characterize the global NCO communications environment
      with a focus on overall communications interoperability
    – Characterize applications making use of communications technology
      described by customer initiatives using common terminology (ODs)
    – Specify collections of protocols and data models to be used to implement
      various communications functions (PFCs)

Architecture & Standards Analysis Team
Network Centric Analysis Tool (NCAT) WG

 Charter:
   – Create an assessment mechanism which provides a metric based
     approach to evaluating/measuring a system‟s, subsystem‟s, or
     component‟s “fitness” for operating in a net centric environment-that is
     extend the net ready check list.
 Key Activities:
   – Research and gather checklists and criteria to measure NCOW RM
   – Research other tools being used or developed by government or other
     agencies that may be incorporated into NCAT V2
   – Establish working relationship with OSJTF MOSA
   – Develop criteria, measures and weights to populate the NCAT
   – Customize MOSA/PART to become NCAT
   – Identify or develop a test case to evaluate the methodology and tool

Architecture & Standards Analysis Team
Mobility WG

Charter & summary of activities:
The primary activity of the Mobility Working Group (MBWG) is to review Mobility
problem space within a Network Centric Operation (NCO) and recommend possible
solutions to the NCOIC. The Mobility Networking Overview (MNO) document
defines the problem spaces that will be investigated. The follow on document,
Mobility Networking Evaluations (MNE), will capture the evaluations/solutions of the
problem spaces or identify technical gaps that require investigation/resolution
brought forward. The MBWG will generate two documents: The first scopes the
Mobility problem space (MNO) and the second recommends possible solutions
(MNE). The goal of the two volume set is to provide guidance for the development of
future Mobile Networks which are compliant with industry and government reference
models and architectures.

Architecture & Standards Analysis Team
Mobility WG

 Planned Activity (~6 Months)
    – MNO Document and ASA Red Team Review
    – MNE will be initialized and authors will begin development
 Future Activity (~1 Year)
    – MNE Document
    – Determine additional requirements and technologies, not identified in the initial
      MNO, that are important to NCOIC and our clients.

                                Approved for Public Release                           29
Architecture & Standards Analysis Team
Open Standards and Patterns WG

 Charter:
   – Define the Consortium‟s approach to the evaluation and recommendation of
     existing and emerging open standards, and patterns of use, relevant to
     achieving interoperability. Establish a process to consolidate and harmonize
     recommended open standards between working groups.
 Current Activities:
   – Consortium review & comment on Naval Open Architecture (completed) and
     FORCEnet Documentation
   – Definition of Consortium process for review and recommendation of Open
     Standards by NCOIC working groups
   – Development of a Open Standards taxonomy for Consortium use

Architecture & Standards Analysis Team
Services Information Interoperability WG

   Charter
     –   Identify and describe service and information interoperability patterns for
         enabling Net Centric operational scenarios while achieving the Net Centric
         data and service tenets.
     –   Coordinate with other working groups to minimize overlap, and to achieve
         consistency of scope, detail and concepts.

   Key Activities
     –   Develop an overall model that integrates Net Centric data and service
         tenets, intersections of the three DoDAF view types, archetypical
         operational use cases, and Net Centric System Capability attributes.
     –   Leverage this model in identifying, investigating, and describing
         architectural framework patterns comprising selected standards and
         functions to satisfy the operational requirements for enabling service and
         data interoperability for problem specific operational scenarios while
         achieving the Net Centric Data and Service Tenets.
