Abstract : This study investigates the potential for the use of World Wide Web (WWW) technology to support the warfighter. Existing tactical data networks, and command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence for the warrior (C4IFTW) systems are capable of providing WWW services. The Global Command and Control System (GCCS) is capable of using WWW technology to support the deployed warfighter. The C4IFTW program seeks to make C4I services truly transparent to the user by providing a Global Grid with the same level of service available at any location. The same level of service will be available to the warfighter whether in garrison or on deployment. The WWW is a recent development affecting the Internet. The WWW is described as a service that allows users to access text, video, or audio information located throughout the network. The GCCS program is a mid-term solution for the C4IFTW program, it is intended to provide communications capability from the National Command Authority to the Joint Task Force commander. Its capabilities include core planning and assessment functions, as well as the service's readiness support requirements. GCCS is the replacement for the legacy World Wide Military Command and Control System as well as numerous existing stovepipe communications systems.
