Getting DOD Linked—How to
Build Netcentric Operations
Richard J. Byrne, The MITRE Corporation
Over the past decade, conventional theory for large networks has undergone a radical revolution as evidenced by the popularity of books such as Albert-Laszlo Barabasi's Linked: The New Science of Networks. Under the old regime (strongly influenced by the work of the great mathematician Paul Erdos), networks were modeled as static, random, and passive entities. Today, we recognize large networks are actually dynamic, scale free, and competitive in nature. Why does this shift in network theory affect the DOD's goal for netcentric operations?
