Abstract:

This Task Force has determined that a Our command and control systems have not kept up with the changes in the type of warfare or the changes in weapons and available command and control technology b It is important to have procurement procedures for command and control systems that reflect the special nature of such systems. The Task Force recommends that a new procurement directive be issued that 1 makes 5000.1 and 5000.2 not applicable to command and control systems, 2 brings the using Commands very deeply and continuously into the development of the command and control systems, and 3 emphasizes the evolutionary character of command and control systems and c There is strong need for a central organization which would essentially 1 oversee the design and testing of all command and control systems that cut across Service lines, 2 insure that means are available whereby the commands can take the initiative in the evolution of the systems, and 3 insure commonality and interoperability among US and Allied systems.
