Abstract:

The inherent complexity of C3I systems makes them difficult to understand. One way of overcoming this complexity is through the use of effective and efficient C3I systems descriptions. The C3I systems characterisation research outlined in this report is concerned with ways of defining C3I systems, and systems of systems, in terms of their elements and relationships. These elements, and relationships, form the basis for a C3I Systems Characterisation Model that reflects the different viewpoints, and information needs, of those involved with C3I systems. The research also makes use of visualisation, which is an important description technique, and recognises the importance of effective, and efficient, descriptions in helping Defence to improve its use, and management, of C3I systems information. This report provides an overview of the preliminary activities associated with the C3I systems characterisation research conducted as part of the Characterisation of C3I for Takari task DAO 97079. It provides supporting information and a motivation for new research directions into C3I systems characterisation.
