Fiscal Year FY 2014 IT President s Budget Request,Department of the Army Overview. Executive Summary,Enhancement without Major Redesign.
In 1998 the Army began upgrading the M1A1 series Abrams main battle tank to the M1A2 series To the casual observer the Abrams did not change drastically However to. the combined arms community and military planners the improvements greatly enhanced the platform s capabilities in particular its lethality while not impacting the tank s. overall design, Similarly planned modernization efforts will incrementally improve the Army s network to achieve LandWarNet 2020 and Beyond Over the last decade the Army invested. heavily in augmenting and integrating LandWarNet s operational capabilities During this same period the enterprise and installation components which together comprise the. institutional component of LandWarNet have remained relatively stagnant fostering significant disparities The emergence of new strategic imperatives as discussed below. requires the Army to rebalance and unify the network into an end to end LandWarNet Following the successful capability set approach used in the Mission Command. domain the Army will incrementally upgrade the institutional component of LandWarNet while synchronizing capabilities with the operational network These upgrades often. transparent to end users will provide significant capability improvements for Army leaders network users and network operators LandWarNet 2020 and Beyond will be more. effective e g single sign on access to applications and data repositories and robust and always available collaborative capabilities efficient e g command and control of. the network through centralized Network Operations and synchronized network funding and secure e g assured identity and access management and continuous monitoring. and risk assessment of the network security posture. Unifying Framework, The Army is at a pivotal moment one where strategic choices made now must align the Army with Federal DoD and Joint imperatives to achieve success for the 2020 force. To ensure operational success in the face of anticipated force structure reductions redeployment of combat forces to CONUS shrinking budgets and growing cyber threats the. Army must produce a unified network that fully addresses and integrates operational institutional and business requirements and processes The continuous evolution of. information technology paradigms and technologies particularly cloud based capabilities adds complexity to the situation The network also must accommodate the need to. work cohesively with joint intergovernmental multinational and non governmental partners. Many of the Army s current key imperatives are dependent upon further network modernization that produces essential qualities and characteristics A sampling of strategic. imperatives that impact network modernization including the desired effects and the associated lines of effort are. Joint Information Environment Imperative Desired Effects 1 core data centers that are centrally managed provide access and enable collaboration across the Joint. arena and 2 normalized network and transport capabilities which reduce redundancies improve security and improve information exchange. Data Center Consolidation Imperative Desired Effects 1 stronger overall IT security posture through consolidation of applications and services within enterprise. hosting facilities and 2 IT investments shifted from locally hosted instances to more efficient computing platforms and associated technologies. End to End Processes Imperative Desired Effects 1 data center computing environments that support consolidated IT investment and centralized hosting of business. applications and 2 established architectures with accompanying governance to oversee compliance. Department of the Army,Page 3 of 398,Department of Defense. Fiscal Year FY 2014 IT President s Budget Request,Department of the Army Overview. Net Enabled Mission Command Incremental Capability Document Imperative Desired Effects 1 robust network transport capabilities to enable command and control. on the move and Joint Interagency and Intergovernmental and Multi national JIIM interoperability and 2 robust collaboration capabilities to support exchange of. operational information and training,Network Capability Sets.
During the last decade the Army allocated significant resources toward advancing and transforming the operational components of LandWarNet This strategic choice made. while the Army was conducting two wars was often to the detriment of the institutional components of the Army s network While deployable forces and power projection. platforms benefited from high bandwidth cutting edge security and integrated capabilities the institutional Army frequently relied on decades old technology and inconsistent. unsynchronized funding for network modernization programs The changing national security posture and objectives such as the Army s shift to a CONUS based fighting. force the requirement to train with the same technology and procedures as used in theater and the need for a smaller footprint in the area of operations mandate that. LandWarNet s institutional components also be transformed To do so while maintaining readiness guaranteeing interoperability and minimizing cost as much as possible the. Army will employ a capability set approach for the entire network. To realize the full operational capabilities of LandWarNet 2020 and Beyond it is essential that Network Capability Sets NCS integrate operational and institutional. requirements defined as Operational Capability Sets OCS and Institutional Capability Sets ICS The Army began fielding OCS in fall 2012 They are defined as the. Mission Command MC hardware applications communication transport and services that support units and organizations while deployed Institutional Capability Sets are. defined as the hardware applications services and communications transport that support the Army business installation management and Army units and organizations The. ICS supports both Generating Forces and operational units as they train prepare to deploy and deploy The operational units receive responsive support while enroute and. forward deployed from capabilities resident across various Army DoD installations. The network enabled by the OCS connects to the ICS at the Fixed Regional Hub Nodes which provide seamless connectivity to enterprise level services systems and. applications for example biometrics data and ISR feeds The OCS hardware also reaches the ICS through Installation as a Docking Station IADS which allows. Commanders to train with their Mission Command systems at home station Providing home station access to coalition networks enables Commanders to gain situational. understanding before deployment As a whole NCSs cohesively synchronize the hardware applications and services deployed to support both warfighting and business. operations and ensure that Army networks are nested with Department of Defense DoD standards This enables the Army s business community to effectively manage and. execute its core end to end business processes with easy access to all relevant data regardless of where it is collected and stored. In the near term these Network Capability Sets will focus on three lines of effort LOE building capacity improving security and expanding enterprise services across the. Army Supporting each of these is a cross cutting priority implementation of network standards Each NCS will be composed of operational tactical components prioritized. according to the Army s Force Generation ARFORGEN cycle and institutional components that are based on known network requirements Under this model the Network. Mission Area will synchronize the development integration and fielding of all network capabilities end to end The Army intends to field the first complete Network. Capability Set operational and institutional components in FY15 synchronized with the Operational Capability Sets fielding in FY13 15 The following LOE will be. implemented,Department of the Army,Page 4 of 398,Department of Defense. Fiscal Year FY 2014 IT President s Budget Request,Department of the Army Overview. Build Capacity The foundation for all future Institutional Capability Set upgrades and the element on which nearly all other network modernization efforts will rely This. LOE is the backbone of the Army network and is focused on improving the Army s data processing and transmission capabilities The Build Capacity LOE supports all of the. Army s network needs from the operational Joint coalition Army and business perspectives Proper capacity will ensure uniform accessibility throughput transmission. speed and reliability no matter the location operational theater home station Army and Joint training centers and all data repositories Initiatives and associated benefits. within this LOE are, o Wide Area Network increase capacity and speed will increase bandwidth 10Gb to 100Gb per second at installations to enable Installation as a Docking Station. capabilities assured information exchange for Enterprise Resource Planning systems and robust access to enterprise services hosted at core data centers. o Transport Convergence converge voice video and data on a single network infrastructure Everything Over IP will reduce duplicative networks increase reliability. enhance maintainability and improve security and replace legacy copper wire telephone switches ISDN VTCs and hard phones nearing or beyond life cycle sustainment. Improve Cyber Security Protect and disseminate information across the network This LOE includes expanding visibility of the network asset visibility and device. control defending the network against attack mitigating security breaches and defining command and control responsibilities for network defense. o Re engineer Top Level Architecture simplify and standardize the network increase performance and enforce compliance will simplify and reduce network complexity. flatten the base architecture and standardize network security ultimately improving network performance and enable critical enterprise initiatives such as Enterprise Email. and Unified Capabilities, o Identity Management improve access control to systems and data will provide a Single Sign on capability and enable controlled access to data repositories. Enterprise Services to the Edge Assure the availability of information data voice video and services to all authorized users The Army must simplify and extend access. to data applications collaboration tools services and communications for itself and all authorized JIIM partners. o Enterprise Service Desk provide users single service desk interface and collapse network operations NetOps under a single common operating picture will consolidate. network support capabilities implement a standardized level of support and reduce IT operation and maintenance requirements at the installation level. o Unified Capabilities provide multiple forms of communication and collaboration through a single device will consolidate capabilities such as chat presence awareness. voice and video through a single device to enable information sharing and collaboration. Implement Network Standards Construct a single secure standards based platform that reaches from every installation to the remotest operational location Uniform. Army wide network standards will aid integration of network solutions and serve as the foundation of the Joint Information Environment They also will help simplify. operation maintenance and defense of the network,Department of the Army.

Technical and Architectural Maturity Each institutional component of the network capability set will be planned developed resourced procured and deployed as a block. of integrated capabilities Three primary areas must be considered in evaluating capability sets for fielding technical maturity the introduction or use of technology with no. operational degradation or risk architectural maturity and supportability The intent of the capability set approach is to introduce synchronized sets of solutions with known. technical maturity to minimize risk Architectural support that allows for development procurement fielding and sustainment in accordance with programmed timelines and. budget is critical The system of systems design build process respects the enormity of the task at hand in terms of scope and the complexity of modernizing vastly different. scaled installations across the force, Tailoring the Institutional Component of Network Capability Sets Operational gaps and evolving threats require changes in Mission Command systems and. modernization via routine fielding of new technologies to Brigade Combat Teams headed to operational theaters Focused on systems engineering integration and. interoperability architects customize materiel solutions to meet warfighter mission needs that become a critical component of Operational Capability Sets Institutional. Capability Sets must also have the same systems engineering rigor and flexibility to upgrade installations ensuring that modernization benefits are maximized and warfighter. needs are met throughout the ARFORGEN cycle Avoiding a one size fits all approach Network Capability Sets will deliver tailored packages to meet the unique needs of.
