Abstract:

This executive summary presents synopses of seven documents produced in the second phase of a project to develop information management concepts and procedures for automated battlefield command and control ABCC systems. ARI research Report 1248 AD-A107 297 describes considerations in and procedures for the management of contemporary ABCC systems. ARI Technical Report 458 AD- A107 329 presents an analysis of procedures for the extraction, summarization and presentation of critical information. ARI Research Note 80-12 AD-A092 205 describes an analysis of information flow in the Tactical Operations System TOS, an example ABCC system. ARI Research Note 80-13 AD-A092 206 describes the mathematical model used in the information flow analysis. ARI Research Notes 80-14 and 80-15 describe the operation programming of the computer programs implementing the model. ARI Working Paper HF80-XX discusses design issues associated with the emerging All-Source Analysis System ASAS concept. Author
