Abstract : This executive summary presents synopses of seven documents produced in the second phase of a project to develop information management concepts and procedures for automated battlefield command and control (ABCC) systems. ARI research Report 1248 (AD-A107 297) describes considerations in and procedures for the management of contemporary ABCC systems. ARI Technical Report 458 (AD- A107 329) presents an analysis of procedures for the extraction, summarization and presentation of critical information. ARI Research Note 80-12 (AD-A092 205) describes an analysis of information flow in the Tactical Operations System (TOS), an example ABCC system. ARI Research Note 80-13 (AD-A092 206) describes the mathematical model used in the information flow analysis. ARI Research Notes 80-14 and 80-15 describe the operation programming of the computer programs implementing the model. ARI Working Paper HF80-XX discusses design issues associated with the emerging All-Source Analysis System (ASAS) concept. (Author)
