The Navy is aggressively pursuing a capability for Fleet units to combine intelligence information into one common picture to allow for rapid correlation of multiple pieces of intelligence. This capability would contribute significantly to reducing the "sensor-to-shooter" timeline and significantly increase the likelihood of correctly classifying and striking a contact of interest. This capability comes in the form of a program called Joint Fires Network (JFN) and the concept was forged through several Fleet Battle Experiments (FBEs) as well as lessons learned from the Persian Gulf War. The objective of this thesis is to examine JFN within the Department of Defense's ISR architecture of the future. It will look at what is envisioned for the future of DoD's ISR systems and how well JFN will function as both a customer and provider of ISR information within a Joint Force architecture. This thesis uses the ISR Integrated Capstone Strategic Plan (ISR-ICSP) developed by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C3I) as the foundation for what DoD's ISR architecture of the future will look like. This thesis looks at the Operational and System Level Architectures spelled out in this document and examines the Navy's stated requirements and existing programs which comprise JFN. This thesis also looks at the ISR systems which each service is planning for the future and how well JFN will share ISR information with these systems.
