Abstract:

This report presents an approach to making future command and control data more timely and robust through the use of replicated distributed data management techniques. The types of command and control data that we address in this report include situational awareness data needed by Army tactical commanders from platoon through corps, including mission plan and progress, represented as machine-processable operation orders OPORDs, enemy situation, and friendly situation and status. The concepts presented here were developed in answer to common objectives in two projects, a Distributed Databases project for the Advanced Research Projects Agency ARPA of the Department of Defense DoD, and a project addressing the Management of Information for Joint and Combined Operations for the Army Office of the Director of Information Systems for Command, Control, Communications, and Computers ODISC4. The report should be of interest to C2 operators and technologists concerned with digitization of the battlefield, tactical command and control, replicated distributed databases, and handling of asynchronous data on the battlefield.
