Talk Abstract:
We a

re convinced that Distributed Networked Systems are the key enablers
to
the Next Generation Undersea Warfare Domain. A Distributed Networked
S

ystem is a set of sensors unmanned vehicles and platforms netted and

working together to provide a clear understanding picture and allowing fo

r
total control of the undersea battle space. We at the Naval Undersea W

arfare
Center will focus NUWC Science & Technology on the “Grand c

hallenge of
Distributed Networked Systems.”
