This paper will highlight the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL sponsored research being carried out by a team led by BBN Technologies to develop a Master Caution Panel MCP for modern, distributed command and control systems. The primary purpose of MCP is to provide military decision makers with situational awareness of the command and control weapon system. MCP accomplishes this by taking information technology IT resource data in the form of IT events and transforming them into operationally significant information. MCP bridges the gap between operational personnel and systems support personnel by providing each group with an independent views of the same set of IT related events. The operator can easily understand the impact of IT resource problems on mission accomplishment and can provide the systems support personnel with clear prioritization concerning where emphasis on fixing problems will have the most impact.
