Security and Defense: Network IDF

A little over a year after the end of the third Gaza war, the IDF’s Southern Command continues to study what many military sources are describing as the first network- centric war.

As Hamas and Islamic Jihad rearm, preparing their next attacks on Israel’s South, Southern Command is moving toward a hi-tech vision that some officers describe as one giant “military iPhone.”

The Gaza conflict last summer was “really the first time the IDF held a network-based war. It was the first time the IDF experienced using a digital network in combat,” Col. Ronen Schneider, commander of the Southern Command’s Communications and Computers Branch, told The Jerusalem Post last week.
