Abstract:

Man-machine interactive computer-based display techniques are evaluated for their automatic data processing ADP applications in combat intelligence. Analysis of a tactical exercise helps conceptualize and formulate display formats and procedures for tactical intelligence production. Methods are suggested for transposing military exercises into data base structures which support computer-generated situation displays. Concepts of mass and movement analyses using interactive displays are developed. ADP problems of software, memory, and information organization are considered. Implementation of a prototype system will validate the analytic methods developed here and explore other techniques which also capitalize on the computers ability to generate complex displays combined with the analysts control of the specific displays to be generated.
