A comprehensive discussion of operational requirements for future naval operations with sufficient detail to enable design and development of technical solutions to achieve the advanced information fusion and command and control concepts described. This book provides a unique focus on advanced approaches to Naval ISR and the critical underlying technologies to enable Distributed Maritime Operations (DMO). Also describing the approach of distributed Naval ops and role of ISR applying advanced technologies and addressing future conflict, new U.S. Naval maritime approaches, distributed Maritime Operations (DMO) and the newest U.S. Navy operational concept. This is a great resource for Naval officers in the ISR, Intelligence, Space, ASW, EW and Surface Warfare, disciplines who seek an in-depth understanding of advanced ISR operations and technologies as well as Navy and industry managers and engineers planning and developing advanced naval systems.
