This issue of NECWORKS continues our approach of bringing together insight and experience from military, academic, industry and consulting authors around the world. In this issue we consider the founding structures of NEC and NCW: typically the technology, but also some of the assumptions made about the way the networks are procured, operated and used.
The various authors look at current approaches in defence and compare
experiences in commercial organisations; they also consider the pace of technological change and how this can be realistically harnessed in a defence context.
