to the Tactical Edge
The Network is a core enabler of allowing the Army to produce a force that is smaller but still highly capable. To support this vision, the Network will be treated as a single entity, unified from the Global Information Grid to the installation to the farthest tactical edge, providing the same basic capabilities from home station to the lone dismounted Soldier in theater.
