20 August 1998 Future directions of information systems in the Army After Next
Author Affiliations +
The U.S. Army's concept for the Army After Next (AAN) for the 2020 time frame is presented. The role of systems in the AAN that will gather information, process, store, fuse, and disseminate information and conduct information warfare will be emphasized and developed. New concepts for sensors and information systems are described as well as their relationship to a systems-of-systems for information dominance on the battlefield. The paper finishes with the sensor and information systems requirements for the AAN, specific applications and a new proposed ACTD, called Joint Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance, that would be the first demonstration of some of the AAN concepts in sensors and information systems.
