The coordination and collaboration of information has never before been more important to the success of tactical missions. Hybrid wireless-mesh networks have the capability to put critical information at the fingertips of the operator, enabling tactical units to successfully carry out their missions. The increasing use of expeditionary and special operations forces operating in ad hoc, dynamic, and tactical environments poses a need for an adaptable, flexible, and responsive Deployable Network Operations Center (DNOC) to support their efforts. Whether co-located or virtual, the DNOC must supply tactical units with the right information, at the right time, and in the right format. The DNOC must also serve as a rapid, reliable, and secure communications network platform so that forces can collaborate in a manner which builds quality interactions and trust. This thesis effort consisted of designing, building, and implementing a DNOC to support Naval Postgraduate School's Tactical Sensor- Decision Making Network (TSDN) field experiments. Baseline operating processes were explored and recommendations for life-cycle maintenance and future upgrades are made.
