Abstract:

This study outlines the concepts and general specifications for ACEOPS which is compatible with the Army Command and Control Master Plan and consistent with the Command and Control Subordinate System architecture. The Army Engineers Study Center determined that 1 it is feasible to automate essential engineer planning and operational activities and 2 a system can be developed for use during both peacetime and wartime. Although the study focuses mainly on the automation needs of combat engineers in Europe, the automation concept could be applied throughout the Army. The relationship of the combat engineer system to other battlefield systems is discussed. Constraints on engineer system development imposed by total force automation plans and developments are identified and assessed. General functional requirements specifications are described for use as initial user requirements and to help structure early software development. The study also recommends actions which should be taken to ensure that engineer needs are considered in a timely and adequate manner in battlefield automation activities already under way. Originator-supplied keywords include Battlefield automation Maneuverability control system, Engineer ADP systems, and Engineer system specifications.
