Abstract : Current DOD Command and Control (C2) priorities call for modular and interoperable C2 systems that can be assembled easily from standard components to provide unique C2 capabilities. Since one of the most costly and critical components of a C2 system is its software, it makes sense to create reusable software components that can be used iii this modular building process. This thesis describes a reusable set of Ada software packages and a portable user interface that implements common two dimensional map and symbol manipulation functions in a C2 workstation environment. This software provides students and researchers a graphical software environment within which different map-based C2 system concepts such as situation monitoring and decision support can be developed and evaluated.
