The Network Science Center (NSC) brings together service members, civilians, and cadets to research and develop significant contributions in the study of network representations of physical, biological, and social phenomena leading to predictive models. The NSC is a thought-leader in this emerging discipline and addresses Army-specific and related Network Science challenges. The NSC also provides relevant educational opportunities for current and future Army leaders.
The NSC is inherently interdisciplinary, leveraging a wide range of USMA academic departments, research centers, and disciplinary experts with close ties to military and civilian research centers. This interdisciplinary capability is critical, given the nature of networks which are pervasive across all aspects of life: biological, physical, and social. The unique ability of the Military Academy within the Army to bring these disciplines together provides an opportunity for significant contributions to the defense of the United States against both conventional military threats and the threat of terrorism.
