Abstract : A number of requirements are emerging for the next generation of military communication networks. These include greater connectivity, improved interoperability and higher capacity, together with the enduring military requirement for security. This paper gives a high-level precis of significant areas that must be addressed in migrating from existing military networks to a goal architecture which will meet future military requirements. The challenges for a migration goal are not only technical but also organisational. The paper draws conclusions, and offers recommendations of future areas that would benefit from further research under the DORIC program.
