This report deals with the valuable use of simulation and data reduction computer programs in the acquisition and engineering of command and control systems. The value of simulations, especially in facilitating the learning process and in expediting system design, is described. Data reduction is shown to be an evolutionary process and the design of a data reduction system should be considered in the very early stages of system acquisition. Some model simulation and data reduction system software are examined and several considerations in their design are enumerated. The importance of the system engineers recognition of the constantly changing nature of all his instrumentation is stressed as being all-important in the design of support systems which provide an overall effectiveness.
