b. FY 04 to FY06. Program managers will comply with three parts of the
(1) Architectures products. See Table
A-2. PMs producing the Architectures Products, using the NCOW, should
to develop high-level interface information for becoming Net Ready and
also be Key Interface tolerant to adapt to the Key Interface Profiles as
they are profiled and become available.
(2) Net-Centric Operations Warfare (NCOW) Reference Model. NCOW RM
provides the PM with a common lexicon for NCOW concepts and terminology,
supported by recognizable architectural descriptions. It describes
net-centricity at the enterprise level for DOD Program Managers and other

requirements and evaluate vulnerabilities.
(4) As Key Interfaces which have been profiled and made available
through the DOD IT Standards Repository (DISR). PMs will comply with these
KIPs, which will be published as an annex in DOD IT Standards Repository
(DISR). KIPís will be distributed as an advisory as soon as they have been
defined, and will be formally published on a priority basis. PMís are
required to incorporate published KIPs in all new start or significantly
modified systems acquisitions and/or pre-Milestone B designs immediately.
For ongoing acquisitions beyond Milestone B and/or established systems,
published KIPs will included as objective capabilities immediately, and as
threshold requirements within 12 months of publication through the systems
evolutionary spiral block upgrade process.
(5) FY 06 and beyond. PMs will be expected to comply with all parts of
the Net Ready Key Performance
