Abstract:

The Command and Control systems of the future must support high quality decisions even when the pace of battle is very fast, the situation is uncertain, and organizations are complex and geographically distributed. This analysis identifies the set of Command and Control functions whose improvement would contribute most to achieving this goal. It identifies three sets of functions a first set whose improvement will most improve C2 decision making a second set that would benefit most from improvements in human performance and a third set where improving human performance will produce the greatest payoff to C2 and operational effectiveness. Five of these functions in this final set support situation assessment, with emphasis on identifying needed information, on situation projection, and on sharing the common picture. The other five functions support planning and execution. These emphasize developing the strategic concept, expressing intent and plan logic, and supporting adaptive control.
