Abstract:

This work demonstrates an application of recent computer technology to the tactical air force intelligence field-Operations and Estimates. The demonstration integrates message handling, data manipulation, threat assessement and labeling, as well as graphic and visual displays into a battle management information system-Query AF. Emphasis was placed on the human interface capabilities with the structured database query system. The database was representative of those Warsaw Pact forces envisioned to oppose the NATO air forces within the Southern Region of Europe. A scenario of database inquiry query and management was chosen from the tactical air force command and control environment. The format for the commands is a structured subset of English in the Air Force intelligence context. Prompting insures the user is always aware of computer required inputs. Query AF was directed primarily towards the capability to rapidly present, update, assess, and disseminate the air threat. Other applications are forseen in such areas as target intelligence and force status.
