Abstract:

The Joint Deployment System JDS forms the junctions among deliberate planning, time-sensitive planning, and the deployment of forces. The WWMCCS Intercomputer Network WIN supplies the necessary interconnectivity among the joint deployment community computer systems. In January 1982, the WWMCCS Information System WIS modernization program was launched with objectives including the modernization of WWMCCS hardware and software and the transfer from the present WWMCCS network system to the Defense Data Network DDN. Because of proven WIN unreliability, the JDS required site-unique software development to supplement present WIN software. Individualized applications software, integrated with the improved network reliability and survivability of the DDN, will enhance the present C3 system. This thesis demonstrates that the total implementation of the WIS involves additional modifications in site-unique applications, standardized procedures for software development, updated hardware technology, and a multi-level security system.
