I&S 6: C4ISR in Force Modernization

Edited by Velizar Shalamanov and Todor Tagarev

This volume presents a series of articles on the role of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) technologies in defense reform. Particular emphasis is given to the application of C4ISR to modernizing the Bulgarian armed forces. Three new developments are presented in the “Monitor” section of the volume - concepts for creating a “C4 Common Technical Architecture Development Coordination Group" and a "Virtual Defense College for Distance Learning," both in the framework of the Southeast Europe Defense Ministerial (SEDM) process, and the newly created Center for National Security and Defense Research at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
