Trident Warrior Experimentation Process

The Chief of Naval Operations defines FORCEnet as the “operational construction and architectural framework for Naval Warfare in the Information Age which integrates warriors, sensors, networks, command and control, platforms and weapons into a networked, distributed combat force, scalable across the spectrum of conflict from seabed to space and sea to land.”

The Trident Warrior experiments are the Navy’s premier FORCEnet Sea Trial experiments. The purpose of the Trident Warrior experiments is to provide “speed to capability” and to develop supporting tactics, techniques, and procedures.

The purpose of this thesis will be to provide a basic overview of the Trident Warrior Experimentation Process. Through a step-by-step analysis, this thesis will explain and justify the many steps required to complete a successful experiment/experimentation campaign.
