Future Joint Force Commanders JFCs will use the Global Command and Control System GCCS for their command and control needs. This study examines this automated decision support system for command and control the Global Command and Control System. It briefly describes the functional areas of this system and some of the specific applications currently fielded. This overview analyzes the functional areas to determine the various types of information that the system is able to track. The needs of a strategic military leader are investigated to determine if the GCCS system can provide the required decision support. For needs not currently met, decision support technologies in artificial intelligence are examined to see what is currently available external to GCCS that can be used as a decision aid to assist a strategic level commander. The paper addresses and presents designs for incorporating these decision aids into the current and proposed future system.
