Research in the Lab
Researching the Revolution in Real Time.
University of Maryland faculty and academicians from around the world can
use the lab to research cutting-edge technologies and to test theories and
models for the Internet economy.
Smith School faculty are using the lab’s capabilities to examine the
impact of netcentricity on the traditional business model, organizational
structures and processes, industry-wide networks, alliances, supply chain
relationships, electronic learning, and consumer behavior.
Most important, through the use of Federal research or private funds, an
interdisciplinary team of researchers can collaborate on projects that will
shape and define Netcentricity in the coming decade.
Research under way in the Netcentricity Laboratory:
Sponsor: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
Project: Harnessing the Power of Netcentricity, a multi-year
research study to identify the impacts of Netcentricity on business
structures and processes.
Sponsor: Logistics Management Institute
