Abstract: his paper provides a case study for the realisation of a joint Network Centric Defence capability by merging existing information and communication infrastructure with new network enabling concepts. This capability was achieved by gaining access to the sensor, Command & Control and effecting functions of the SAAF JAS-39 Gripen fighter aircraft through utilising its Tactical Data Link (TDL). By making TDL information available to systems from other Arms of Services in a Services Orientated manner, the traditional functionality of the Gripen in the Close Air Support (CAS) role can be extended to perform roles currently required in joint Operations Other Than War (OOTW).
