Abstract : This work identifies and examines the disconnects in designing, testing, and using Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) Systems, investigates their causes and effects, and determines what can be done about them. Experts involved with C4I system offered their thoughts on the subject in structured interviews. These experts represented the military, academic, and commercial C4I communities. The intent is to identify the main, overriding issues that dominate current thinking about C4I systems. The selective sample of experts and the literature review discovered eighteen major disconnects which are listed in the conclusions and discussed throughout the report. Command and control systems, Command, Control, Communications intelligence (C4I) systems, Design, Test, Use, Requirement Architecture, Standards, Automation, Measurement
