Overview

The NTV-2 Technical Standards Forecast subview is part of the NATO Technical View and one of the 49 NATO Architecture Framework subviews*.

Version & Date

Version 3.1

* =  changed at 3.1

+ =  new at 3.1

The change history is derived from the definition of each NATO Architecture view within section 5.2.7 NATO Technical View (NTV) in AC/322(SC/1-WG/1)N(2009)0005-ADD2.  NATO Architecture Framework Version 3.1 document from http://www.nhqc3s.nato.int/Browser.asp?Target=_docs/NAF_v3_1 .

See NAF Release History.

Purpose

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3.1, CHAPTER 4, Section 4.8.2

The purpose of the Technical Standards Forecast subview (NTV-2) is to identify emerging, obsolete and fragile standards, and to assess their impact on the architecture and its constituent elements. A forecast addressing emerging standards will give insight into the direction that the project will go.

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Description

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3.1, CHAPTER 4, Section 4.8.2

The NTV-2 forecast describes expected changes in technology related standards and conventions, which are documented in the NTV-1 product. The forecast relates these changes in standards to the time periods mentioned in the NSV-8 and NSV-9 subviews. For example, a system’s evolution description, specified in NSV-8, may be tied to a future standard identified in NTV-2, and a timed technology forecast from NSV-9 may be dependent on the adoption of an emerging standard, forecasted in NTV-2. In short, the future change of systems may depend on, or be driven by the nature and acceptance of future standards.

The forecast should include the following:

  • predictions for (change in) market acceptance of standards, both existing NTV-1 standards, emerging standards, and fading standards;
  • an overall risk assessment associated with using changing standards, especially with using emerging standards, or maintaining standards that are in danger of becoming obsolete;
  • issues and recommendations, based on an analysis of the potential impact of changing standards on the current architecture.

Covered by NATO release conditions.

Data Objects

From the NATO Architecture Framework v3.1, CHAPTER 5, Section 5.2.7.2

Comments

Would be useful if were able to show how Protocols evolve over time i.e. a NTV-1 with a time dimension.
