Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B ... 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.

Authors

Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B...0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Introduction

These are the proceedings of the twenty first Open Architecture/Open Business Model Net-centric Systems and Defense Transformation conference. The papers presented at the conference strongly reflected the inexorable trend towards Open Architecture/Open Business Model acquisition patterns to provide the government Better Buying Power (BBP). The conference included the following joint sessions:

  • 1. Self-organizing Collaborative Unmanned ISR Teams, held jointly with the Unmanned Systems Technology conference (SPIE volume 9837)

  • 2. Micro Autonomous Systems Technology, held jointly with the Micro-and Nanotechnology Sensors, Systems, and Applications conference (SPIE volume 9836)

The conference included a special session on Affordability Considerations in Military Systems; as well as an invited paper [9849-6] by chief technology officer Mr. Jeffrey Eggers of the United States Air Force.

Looking ahead we expect Net-centric systems to increasingly focus on Open Architectures (OA) and Open Business Models (OBM). Such OA/OBM systems seek to mimic the successful PC industry and hold the promise to dramatically reduce the acquisition and life cycle costs of military systems, and tremendously accelerate the rate of technology refresh in military systems.

It was gratifying to see the high level of audience interest in this conference. Particularly gratifying was the fact that this conference has resulted in the “spinoff” of several new conferences at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing. My sincere thanks to the distinguished invited speakers, authors, attendees, and to my associates on the program committee for another successful conference.
