Information Dominance (ID)


CNO's Vision


Navy is prominent and dominant in the fields of ISR, Cyber Warfare, C2, Information
& Knowledge Management


Information becomes a strong US Navy warfighting capability


Warfighting wholeness replaces sub
-
optimal stovepipes (mission threads)


Navy's Information Transformation


Every platform carrying multiple sensors


Every sensor connected to the network


Create a world class Information Dominance Corps


Warfighters

must be capable of seamlessly using target data derived
from any collector or sensor


“Realize our role as the Navy's Information Dominance Systems Command"

SPAWAR Commander’s Perspective on S&T


Need more Warfighter involvement in defining Navy
Information Dominance (ID) set of priorities



Develop relevant ID capabilities


Cross platform, cross Enterprise



S&T that transitions does not transition fast enough



Not enough S&T transitions to the Acquisition Community

An app is a piece of software. It can run
on the Internet, on your computer, or on
your phone or other electronic device.



A widget is a lightweight, single

purpose
web application that users can configure
in a variety of ways. Widgets are often a
summary or limited view into a larger web
application and are displayed alongside
related widgets.
