DOD list of Force Transformation case studies.
To date, one case study is complete, six are ongoing, and four are planned. The six ongoing case studies are scheduled to be ready for final review in July, 2004. The four planned case studies have a tentative completion date of February, 2005.
This case study explored in detail the increased mission effectiveness that USAF F-15Cs employing data links achieved in comparison to F-15Cs using voice only communications. This case study is currently available in PowerPoint format only.
These case studies are supported by a select team of scientists, engineers, and military operators from throughout the international defense community.
Command and Control of Networked Forces: CTF-50 During Operation Enduring Freedom
This case study explores how Commander, Task Force 50 (CTF-50) during Operation Enduring Freedom employed innovative, network-enabled C2 capabilities. Phase I of this case study is complete. A draft final report has been developed and is currently out for review and comment. In December, 2003 the case study findings were briefed to Navy Rear Adm. Zelibor, commander of Task Force 50. He concurred with the findings and approved this case study for general distribution. Final draft is currently under review.
Special Operations Forces
This case study explores how Navy Special Warfare Group One is employing network-centric warfare capabilities in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the Global War on Terrorism.
This case study explores the impact to date of the deployment of a variety of networking and digitization technologies by air and ground forces on the Air-to-Ground mission. Data for this case study draw from tests, exercises, and combat operations in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Ground Maneuver-Stryker Brigade Combat Team
This case study explores how the U.S. Army's Stryker Brigade Combat Teams combine advanced networked enabled C2 capabilities and innovative tactics, techniques, and procedures to improve mission effectiveness.
Coalition Network Centric Operations during Operation Iraqi Freedom
This case study examines how U.K. Ground Forces employed network-enabled Blue Force Tracking Capabilities during Operation TELIC (U.K. support to Operation Iraqi Freedom). This case study is a collaborative effort between the DoD Office of Force Transformation and the U.K.Ministry of Defence and is co-funded by both departments.
Network Enabled Coalition Military Operations
This case study investigates the impact of network-enabled C2 capabilities on coalition military operations by examining in depth the insights and lessons learned by:
* ACE (Allied Command Europe) Mobile Force (Land) during employment of Immediate Reaction Task Force (Land)
* Multi-national forces during NATO Operation Amber Fox, which facilitated the first democratic elections in Macedonia
* 1st German Netherlands Corps operating as International Stabilization Force 3 in Afghanistan.
These case studies are currently ongoing with a tentative completion date of February 2005.
