This report attempts to clarify issues concerning the organization and functions of command post information systems CPIS. The purpose of the report is to provide system designers with a better understanding of factors which influence the operation of a CPIS and which constrain system design alternatives. A CPIS is viewed as one of four systems making up a command post -- the others being a command system, a weapon system, and a support system. The Air Force organization is discussed in the light of this concept, with special emphasis being placed on the relationship of the Air Force to the Unified Commands and the L systems. The insights gained from this analysis are incorporated into a conceptual model. This model provides the system designer with a conceptual framework for designing an integrated CPIS. An evaluation model, permitting the system designer to test certain design alternatives has been suggested as an extension of the conceptual model. It is felt that application of these models by a system designer will greatly facilitate the design of a CPIS.
