Interoperability is a key condition for network centric operations. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze this concept in all details and to discuss it lively. The paper at hand is meant to contribute to this discussion.
Interoperability can be examined with respect to systems as well as with respect to forces. Under the NCW-perspective, the force view is focused. With this in mind, in the paper at hand, the degrees of interoperability are discussed, and, for each degree, examples are given in order to illustrate what is missed at the degree under discussion. Finally, it is argued – on the base of what is missing even under maximal interoperability – that the military equivalent of an edge organization still needs a hierarchical structure to ensure cooperation and synchronization of its parts as well as optimal acting.
