More advanced architectural concepts are needed to realize the flexible, rapidly configurable information support envisioned with the NCII. Examples of research in this area are noted above in Section 4.3.2.3. The important point is that senior Navy and DOD officials recognize and support the need for such research.

Recommendation: The Department of the Navy, in developing an NCII architecture, should clarify the architectural responsibilities across the various naval offices currently involved in architecture development.

Responsibilities must be clearly delineated. A suggested assignment of responsibilities is given in Section 4.3.2.4.
