Title Methodology for Derivation of C2 and ISR Requirements.
Publication Date Apr 2010
Media Count 5p
Personal Author B. Retzuis
Abstract The complex challenges posed by the future security environment calls for a systematic method for planning under uncertainty with the aim of providing the capabilities required to achieve the range of objectives/effects needed to successfully accomplish NATOs missions and aims. This capability based planning needs to be enhanced and applied more widely within NATO Defence Planning (DP). Furthermore, capability requirements should be identified in a manner that is traceable and transparent and one that facilitates the timely and efficient development of solutions to meet these requirements. This paper outlines how a service oriented approach could be applied to support the generation of C2 and ISR capabilities and associated interoperability in the context of the NATO Defence Planning Process (NDPP). This results in a clear, auditable trail from the strategic missions that NATO must be able to undertake through to the C2 and ISR capabilities needed to perform these missions. The approach provides a systematic way for deriving a comprehensive set of requirements, is scalable and adjustable to the problem at hand, and has broad applicability. Its application entails the collaboration of different stakeholders from the operational and technical community.
