This CWA specifies services and other items mandatory or optional for a Network Enabled Abilities environment. It also includes an inventory of standards and standard-like specifications applicable to each such item. These items include recommended general principles and framework for system design, overall architectures, generic functionality to be considered, concepts, conventions and terminology in order to ensure an optimum multi-purpose interoperability, in particular of national and multi-national military and civil operations. This CWA is applicable to the full life cycle of information system abilities for network centric operations, including specification, development, deployment, registration, and execution. The main audience of this document is individuals and organisations participating in the further development of information system abilities for network centric operations. The identification of services and other items of a NEA environment is non-exhaustive. The items were originally identified as a result of the examination of a number of scenarios. There might also be other standards and standardisation initiatives than those identified in this CWA. The listed standards are to be regarded as relevant standards known by the workshop participants. However, where there are no standards listed, this might indicate that NEA-specific standards have to be developed. The evaluation and selection of standards for NEA is identified as a very important task. Yet this is beyond the scope of this CWA and regarded as the subject of a future CWA or standard. Specifications for design of products and commercial services, decisions on technologies or development of specific applications are issues not in the scope of this CWA.
