The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff established the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System processes for acquisition of joint capabilities which are achieved through network-centric applications, services, enterprise systems, Family of Systems (FoS) and System of Systems (SoS). In many cases, advanced technologies must be matured simultaneously by multiple systems to support the degree of interoperability and/or integration required. Current DoD guidance with respect to technology development and assessment is focused on a acquisition of a system which operates relatively independently within a collection of other independent systems. An approach to technology development and technology readiness assessment of advanced technologies which support network-centric systems is required for successful development and fielding of network centric warfighting capabilities. Fundamental activities of technology maturation and assessments are the definition of a relevant environment and the ability to identify the critical technologies that provide for interoperable or interdependent functions. This paper proposes definitions for System of Systems and Family of Systems, degrees/levels of interoperability, and SoS Technology Readiness Assessment requirements and guidelines. SoS acquisition strategies are proposed to support program synchronization and SoS engineering activities which are key to successful development of net-centric Service and Joint capabilities.
