This report covers the first six months of a one-year research and development program directed towards the design and incorporation of an Adaptive Information Selection scheme used within a Command Control and Communication environment with special emphasis on the Tactical Combat Operations TCO system. A multi-attribute evaluation model is used to determine the proper dissemination of TCO messages. The development of an in-house simulation using the existing Tactical and Negotiations Game is discussed. A background rationale is given to present the need for such an aid. The MTACCS Interim Test Facility within which the Adaptive Information Selector will eventually be implemented is discussed in detail. An analysis was performed to determine the attributes available from the messages and message headers resident in the MTACCS Interim Test Facility Database. A training scheme is developed tailored to the actual operator actions performed during exercises at the Test Facility. The principal functions making up the AIS are defined and their interfaces shown in a functional information flow diagram. The database management system used at the MTACCS Interim Test Facility is discussed including the definition of some of its data structures. Finally, an estimated burden of the AIS as it will be implemented on the MTACCS Interim Test Facility is presented.
