JANUARY 2008, NEW DELHI: Informa, in association with India’s IDSA, have this month launched activity in preparation for the world’s first large exhibition dedicated entirely to network enabled capability for defence and homeland security. According to Air Marshal Subhash Bhojwani, former Commander-in-Chief of the IAF Training Command and Special Advisor to NECE 2008, “network-enabled capabilities allow true unity of command where macro-control is essential for achieving mission success”. Network enabled capability (NEC) – also referred to in part as network centric warfare (NCW), including elements of C2, C3, C4, C4i, C4 isr, C4 istar – uses a combination of information and communications systems and technologies to link or ‘network’ the many individual assets or sets of assets within a defence or security force. “The importance of network enabled capability and network centric warfare in today’s international security contexts cannot be understated. Network centricity allows for smarter, more effective and more cost-efficient defence and security systems, and is high on the priority lists for many nations around the world” adds Abhaey Singh, Managing Director of Informa India. “With an open exchange of ideas between decision-makers from militaries, governments and some of the world’s leading think tanks – led by IDSA - NECE 2008 and the NECE 2008 Leadership Summit will be extremely important events for many senior defence officials and industry executives” says Singh.
