Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Command and Control Systems Management
OFFICE OF THE DEPUTY UNDER SECRETARY OFDEFENSE (RESEARCH AND ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY) WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The nation is failing to deploy command and control systems commensurate with the nature of likely future warfare, with modern weapons systems, or with our available technological or industrial base. This quotation was the opening statement in a report on Command and Control Systems Management issued nearly a decade ago by a Task Force of the Defense Science Board. To correct the then perceived failings, that Task Force addressed itself to the following areas how to assure the operational effectiveness of systems for the support of command and control how to enable the military commands to upgrade and evolve their command and control systems within standards and specifications stemming from an overarching architectural framework to fit the specific needs of the commands how to strengthen the capabilities of the Joint Chiefs, the Services and the Unified and Specified Commands for testing and exercising as well as evaluating and specifying functions to be performed by the command and control systems how to modify the regulations for the acquisition of command and control systems in order to recognize the special attributes of these systems, especially the need for evolution, and finally how to develop a coordinated program of research on command and control concepts to provide the intellectual base needed to guide the evolution of improved command and control systems.
