Abstract
The fast moving dynamics of future network centric warfare, i.e. changes in capability (significant gain or loss of infrastructure), changes in mission, changes in (coalition) partners and their roles, and responses to network attacks require the ability for rapid system reconfiguration. To avoid interruptions in the missions, it is critical for network managers to understand the impact of the decisions they are making. ATC-NY and Architecture Technology Corporation will develop PolicyProjector to ensure network managers have maximum visibility into the impact of their decisions. PolicyProjector will help network managers to assure that priority activities will be sustained, performance objectives will be met, security will be adequately controlled, and changes will not lead to unacceptable limitations on future configuration changes (e.g., inability to add a new coalition partner).
