Over the next few years, the Command and Control C2 community will face increased demands for processing data as increasing numbers of data sources are deployed. It is expected that skilled analysts will continue to play an important role in gleaning useful information from imagery and other sources that are by and large produced as digital multimedia. Using current information systems would require significant increases in the numbers of analysts needed to manage the increased workload that is expected. Because the number of analysts can be expected to remain fairly constant over the next few years, scalable and extensible C2 processing technology will be required to achieve productivity gains needed to keep up with increasing demands. Two complementary information systems, a Distributed Processing DP system and an Information Management IM system, form the basis for a new architecture that can meet this requirement. A combined system DPIM that addresses the performance and the scalability required for future C2 systems is introduced in this paper.
