■ third-rate companies make products, second-rate brand companies do, do the standard first-class enterprise, which is winning in today’s business world Collection. Standard is a pass to enter the international market. Similarly, the forces of information technology also needs standardization.
■ not follow the rules, no standards. In the new century, the world’s military powers are normalized to the strategic high ground. Foreign armies, said: “There is no joint operations of the war is hell, no standardized joint operations is a real hell!”
■ from the Union is not on, not to pass interoperability is not compatible, then a network integration, information integration, Beijing Military Region air defense brigade established network access system, seeking to speed up the smooth flow of information and sharing is a useful exploration to strengthen the standard sense.
“enemy” see ye hit them
tsunami bomb sky, waves of success. Bohai Sea, the Beijing Military Region air defense brigade in a complex electromagnetic environment of air defense drills in full swing.
“found the target!” Rui glued to the radar hand control on the screen flashing “enemy” points of light, keep a record of target parameters, and the command center via encrypted phone to report the target dynamics. Command center under the “enemy” to fight fire attack unit issued instructions.
sword scabbard about the radar screen suddenly appeared a clutter, “enemy” started strong electromagnetic interference. Ruled out until the interference, the “enemy” has changed the flight path, altitude swept past. Rui quickly report to the command center, but it was too late. When the target missile and antiaircraft artillery unit probability of receiving the parameters, to enable short-range radar tracking, fire with fire when ready, the target has been out of shooting range. “Do not have the shooting conditions!” Missile operator Hai-Bo Hu frustration.
watched the “enemy” away from his nose, air base that day without success. Battlefield defeat, so the brigade officers and men wake up: If you can not achieve an integrated command platform interoperability, information sharing can not be real, “telescope” can only “look on in despair”, “arrow through the clouds,” will “sake of making criticisms.”
this end, the brigade have invested millions of dollars of special funds for multi-generation weapons, reconnaissance and early warning systems and equipment for more than ten kinds of information transformation, self-developed module of a field command, the command and control units, fire units to combat units and logistical support in the hardware Unicom, the pursuit of building integrated systems, information resources, integration, operational command one.
information “fence” removed, the original singing the tune of the information system started a “chorus.”
information “highway” Why have traffic jams
This is a contract of the brigade drill. Remarkably, the introduction of the online training will be fitted out in the brigade’s a new missile training simulator, the old and new equipment is intended to detect the degree of integration of information.
“‘enemy’ is close to the communication support unit! Target may carry electromagnetic bomb.” Reconnaissance unit will be empty when the situation when the information transmitted to the command center, but suffered no small embarrassment – the new column mounted missile brigade equipped with the data parameters are not compatible command and control systems, air situation information can not be shared, had to use traditional means of data transmission.
rapidly changing battlefield situation, a short time, several pieces of electromagnetic bomb hit the communications hub, communication interruption, the commander had to manually enable liaison with the combat units, but lost the information superiority fighter air base has been missed.
exercise after the technician find the cause of fighting lost causes, that turned out to be due to a communication unit installed in the computer software is not time to upgrade. Hard to focus on technical strength of the brigade, according to information perception, transmission, processing, standardization of requirements, develop an information network access system, to break the information technology network is not compatible with the formation of “barriers”, while the combat units of the information network installation of automatic detection software, real-time monitoring software updates to ensure that information “green channel” flow.
why high-speed information system “brake”
the hinterland of the Taihang Mountains, the brigade held mobile air defense exercises, not only took out called “killer” of the new missile, radar and other information technology equipment, but also spent a lot of information through the upgrading of the old anti-aircraft artillery and other equipment.
However, with the rapid flow of information increases, the command center into a dilemma. Although the artillery unit to the command center received the instruction and information transmission can not identify, had to request the command center to reduce coding complexity. On the other side, the missile unit was back with the opposite feedback information transmission request command center more accurate and detailed target parameters, easy to precision strike.
the same information as they need to deal with both formats, the command center has greatly increased the workload. Even more embarrassing is the command center, the original network in the normative standards of protocol and access, in order to “take care of” old equipment compatibility, engineers did not transmit information standards for “high.” Now temporary “speed”, mainly the old root port equipment. In desperation, high-speed operation of information systems had to brake “slow.”
back exercises, the brigade immediately modify the network access system. Tour party committee also decided that the network access standards into development planning travel information, year after year study looking at this issue. Each group received new equipment on the network access standards for a perfect software system for an upgrade.
get enough: from “watch theorem” thought
■ Beijing Military Region air defense brigade Zhang Hongbo
a person has a only a table, you can know it is a few minutes; and when he has two tables, it can not determine the specific time. Because the two tables, there were two standards, but will watch the people have lost the exact time. This is the famous “watch Theorem.” Thus, any work should have a standard. Emphasis on information technology “start” phase of the development of standards, is extremely important.
present, although the military aspects of information technology in the development of a number of relevant regulatory documents, in order to lay a good foundation for a unified standard, but not fundamentally solve the “fragmented, decentralized development” issue. Especially the Army, due to poor foundation, arms and more equipment, miscellaneous, some units still maintain their traditional practices, using their own data standards and formats. To break barriers, removal of the “fence” to form a Fabric ability, it is necessary to establish scientific, specific, unified information technology standards, to ensure that these standards can be fully understood and implemented, eliminate the formation of the system of internal friction force, “small units “So,” Big Unit “is no different. Information technology standards to enhance the awareness should be a wider range of consensus and practice.
