Brigade Modernization Command (BMC) and Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) NetZero Conference

As of 9 Jan 12

Bottom Line

Fundamentally change how we deliver capabilities to our Soldiers ­ Develop a new way of doing business

Approach

· Army senior leadership directed the Brigade Modernization Command (BMC) and 2/1 AD (attached) at Fort Bliss TX /White Sands Missile Range (FBTX / WSMR) to become the "Centerpiece of Army Network Integration" · Army Directive: All network systems evaluated at FBTX/WSMR prior to deployment; HQDA G3 is the gatekeeper for each evaluation of network/non-network capability in a full spectrum operational environment prior to deployment into theater · The Integrated Evaluation Concept, which supports incremental network modernization strategy includes full-time membership by TRADOC (BMC), Army Test and Evaluation Command (Operational Test Command), and Assistant Secretary of the Army ­ Acquisition, Logisitics & Technology (System of Systems Integration)

Decisive

Getting capability solutions into the hands of Soldiers early and often ... supported by technical engineers and combat developers, training developers, and material developers.

What is the NIE?

The Network Integration Evaluation (NIE) is a series of semi-annual evaluations designed to integrate and mature the Army's tactical network. ­ Conduct integrated and parallel Operational Tests of select Army programs of record. ­ Evaluate development and emerging network capabilities in an operational environment. ­ Assess non-networked capabilities in an integrated operational environment.

What Makes the NIE Different?

The "Adaptive" Evaluation Concept:

­ Integrated evaluations of capabilities rather than discrete evaluations ­ Synchronized and consolidated feedback loop ­ two evaluations per year ­ Evaluation and integration from Platoon to BCT levels ­ Tactical AO encompassing up to 12,000 sq. km of complex terrain and airspace ­ Includes opportunities for integrating industry solutions and emerging technologies in parallel ­ Established a network baseline for incremental modernization ­ The Business Case: Reduced costs thru efficiency & competition, quicker cycle times, and rapid technology insertions

BOTTOM LINE

The Agile Process and NIEs will fundamentally change how we deliver capabilities to our Soldiers ­ It's a a new way of doing business · The Army has adopted a strategy that will align the tactical network to the ARFORGEN process through Capability Sets that will enhance vertical and horizontal connectivity and provide an integrated network baseline from the static TOC to the dismounted Soldier. · Network Integration Evaluations are key enablers to executing this strategy.
