"US warfighting strategy envisions Army and Joint Interoperability focused on system-centric technology to support the information needed to sustain command and control. A key obstacle to interoperability is the development of systems from the uniqueperspective of each individual system. Architecture Technology Corporation proposes to develop a Virtual Network Monitor (VNM) to allow the warfighter or operator to customize the network view to ensure timely exploitation of the growing NetworkInformation Grid. To optimize the network-centric paradigm, the VNM concept will apply proven network monitoring technologies with specific features of object oriented systems to enable symbiotic battlefield interoperability of Army and Joint systemsfunctioning at near optimal performance and warfighting capability.The Virtual Network Monitor (VNM) is a network monitoring/management tool that will allow dynamic network changes (either preplanned or real-time) that increase communications reliability and bandwidth utilization, ensure timely delivery of criticaldata/information, and reduce data latency. As a product, the Virtual Network Monitor will provide a virtual view of the physical network information grid that can the customized to allow different users to tailor their field of interest to a specific subset of the grid. VNM will also provide thefacilities to manage the resources of the grid as the situation changes, supporting real-time react
