Abstract:

The NMCC is the primary command center from which the command and control of United States military forces is excercised. Despite this responsibility the technology currently employed to support the information processing function within the NMCC is less than satisfactory. Most recently, the Defense Communications Agency DCA completed a Technical Analysis and Cost Estimate TACE for an NMCC Information and Display System NIDS whose objective would be to relieve current shortcomings. This research paper provodes 1 a general description of the deficiencies of the current NMCC information processing capability 2 a philosophy of the type Management Information System MIS required 3 a description of the primary capabilities contained in NIDS and the likelihood of its implementation, and 4 a general appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses of the NIDS concept.
