the network needs to enable tactical formations. For example, the network must enable formation and platform agility but fitting with size, weight, and power constraints. Network components must also have equivalent tactical mobility to the formation it enables. There are also special areas of interest such as air ground operations, cyber electromagnetic activities, and operations in disrupted, intermittent, and limited conditions. "The Mission Command Network is our means to create synergy between the institution of the Army and deployed forces," said LTG Robert B. Brown, CG, Combined Arms Center, now GEN Brown, CG, U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC). "This narrative offers the commander's perspective on how the Mission Command Network will enable our Army to prepare, educate, train, and fight." Present Focal Development Currently the document is serving as the vision for the Army's Mission Command Network Modernization strategy. This strategy has six endstates which seek to attain the key ideas and capabilities outlined. These endstates are focused to (1) integrate the network across formations, (2) leverage common standards and technologies, (3) simplify and protect the network, (4) attain interoperability with mission partners, (5) create agile, expeditionary command posts, and (6) develop an enterprise network that enables expeditionary mission command, training, and readiness. Each endstate consists of objectives over time that move the Army toward the desired capabilities. The second use of the vision document is to align the body of requirements documents that the Army staff and TRADOC are writing. The Integrated Planning Team mentioned earlier is currently ensuring that there is an appropriate set of requirements documents in development for each key component of the Mission Command Network. For example, there is a family of requirements documents in development that will provide the "common user experience" articulated in the narrative.
