Abstract:

This volume reports on how well human resources data have been used in the development of US army command, control, communications, and intelligence C3I systems. It makes recommendations for increasing the utility of such data. The findings and recommendations reported here come from a study carried out with the following objectives 1 To examine the Army system development cycle from the proponents point of view 2 To identify points within the cycle where human resource data would have a pronounced impacts on operational concepts, systems definition requirements, training requirements, doctrine development, and other aspects of the proponents role 3 To identify ways of improving the development and use of human resources data and 4 To identify the technology gaps in the problem of incorporating human resources data in the system development cycle. The use of human resources data was studied in the development cycles of two C3I systems the Tactical Operations System TOS and the Stand-Off Target Acquisition system SOTAS. The xm1 Abrams Main Battle tank was also examined in order to provide a comparison between weapons systems development and C3I system development. Keywords Man computer interface and Tactical data systems.
