Product Description

From the Author

I started writing this book several years ago as a project for my company as an easy-to-understand overview of network enable warfare and associated technologies. Having read quite a few complicated `technical' books from various sources, I found that it was often possible to be none the wiser about the application of the technologies and how the various concepts and characteristics of the systems and their interactions had an impact on the overall network design. The book was therefore written from the outset to enable readers to really get a feel for the concepts, technologies and applications, and avoid complicated formulae that leave little appreciation of the `art' of the subject. Working closely with Artech House throughout the production process we've produced what I hope will be an authoritative source which is visually easy to digest, and highlights key concepts at a glance.

I am hoping that the `easy to read' style, which is accompanied by over 400 photos and illustrations, will find a ready home amongst people such as engineers, managers and military staff and journalists at all levels who need to have an appreciation of an increasingly complex subject matter without having to read thick technical books to gain an appreciation of the subject.

Modern warfare is increasingly dominated by electronic technologies that aim to give the commander in the air, land or sea environment, a complete understanding of the disposition and intentions of friendly and opposing forces distributed across the battlespace through what is termed `Information superiority'. Information superiority and information dominance is essential in achieving the overall control of the battlespace and virtually all other successful military outcomes.

The book is divided in to several key Chapters. Chapter 1 gives an overview of the role of information in modern warfare and looks at how information-related capabilities have changed the face of warfare and will continue to do so in the years ahead. Chapter 2 looks the principles of network enabled warfare and describes how data, information and knowledge is gathered and created and shared across multiple collaborating networks and how understanding of these principles can deny information superiority to opposing forces. It describes the processes involved in military decision-making, the interaction between the key military areas of command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance, along with a description of different types of networks and their characteristics, how different networks interact, and the challenges of network security. Chapter 3 then moves on to look at the applications of such technologies and networks in more technical detail. It describes the characteristics of datalinks and networking, communications protocols, the electro-magnetic environment and data fusion principles and how sensors disseminate information in a timely and relevant manner to the decision makers across the battlespace. The final chapters looks forward to some of the emerging technologies and describes how current progress will continue to challenge our thinking about modern warfare.

In summary, the book aims to bring to life the concepts of network-enabled warfare and how the many sensors and decision-making processes are woven together to achieve information superiority as well as de-mystifying what can be a complex and difficult to access area of battlespace technology.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Air Commdore M K Crayford on 23 Mar. 2011
Format: Hardcover
I congratulate Richard Deakin in bringing together, in such coherent fashion, a complex subject area in a single book. Continuous changes in battlespace technologies present opportunities but also new challenges for Battlespace Management. Battlespace Management has always been important but the nature of contemporary operations requires ever lower levels of command to plan and execute increasingly complex operations. Technology provides commanders with visibility over an increasingly wide area, and improved networked communications enable them to control forces at ever greater distances. This well researched book, from a highly respected subject matter expert, provides a valuable compendium to Battlespace Management practitioners and insight for a wider audience who recognise the importance of "Battlespace Technologies" to contemporary military operations. Proceeds from this book will also be passed to a service charity and I commend it to you.

Format: Hardcover
A brilliantly researched and meticulously presented work, this is a must read for anyone with an interest in information superiority. This book will not only benefit those in the Defence and Intelligence Industries, but makes for excellent reading for those that need to understand the cutting edge of information dominance and how that can be read across into state of the art business. Deakin has wrung simplicity from complexity, no mean feat in this field and is to be congratulated on a splendid read.

Battlespace Technologies: Network-Enabled Information Dominance
This is a real "tour de force" on the military strategic and tactical value of information in the right form, at the right place and at the right time. It describes the subject by emphasising the importance of networking information quickly, accurately and concisely in a wide range of Battlefield applications. To attempt to describe such a broad sweep of technology and applications in one book, and make it a good read as well as educational, is ambitious - but Richard Deakin succeeds and holds the reader's interest throughout. The description of the language of the technology and a comprehensive list of references provide the tools for more understanding and depth when required. A first class contribution.
