Abstract:

Provides information to field users who are responsible for introducing automation into command and control functions. It is designed to specifically enhance user appreciation of automation capabilities and maximize effectiveness of a man-machine system. This document does not address the technical areas of programming and software design, but rather addresses issues for the commander and staff that must be considered in exploiting automation capabilities to further improve command and control operations. In addition to describing the basic principles that apply to the use of computer support into information systems in general, and to military systems in particular, this document also provides a section on information system theory and terminology.
