Abstract:

This research project investigated digital command, control, and communications C3 systems of the U.S. military services to find information that could be used to help integrate U.S. Army digital C3 systems into digital units. The first part of the project identified key elements of U.S. Army digital systems and used these elements to identify similar systems in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, and civilian services such as police, fire, and emergency services. Once similarities were identified, the next step was to collect information on lessons learned, best practices, training, and research that would be relevant to U.S. Army digital systems. The results found that few digital C3 were similar to U.S. Army systems, and most are still under development. The only systems that had close similarities with U.S. Army digital systems were tactical-level systems used by the U.S. Marine Corps. Consequently, agreements have been made to share research and development products between the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps. 2 tables, 21 refs.
