Abstract
COMBAT INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION IS AN ECHELONED, CENTRALIZED PROCESS. WHILE THE OTHER FUNCTIONAL ELEMENTS OF THE ARMY'SCOMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEM (ACCS) UNDER DEVELOPMENT ARE DISTRIBUTED AND DECENTRALIZED, THE INTELLIGENCE AND ELECTRONIC WARFARE SYSTEM IS STILL CENTRALIZED. THIS PROGRAM ADDRESSES THE CONCEPT OF A DISTRIBUTED, DECENTRALIZED COMBAT INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM. THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE PROPOSED SYSTEM ARE: 1) REDUCED LOADS ON SUPPORTING COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS, 2) NEAR REAL TIME PROCESSING AND DISTRIBUTION OF COMBAT INTELLIGENCE TO ALL USERS INDEPENDENT OF ECHELON, 3) ELIMINATION OF "CRITICAL NODE" PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS CENTERS, 4) REDUCED MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS, AND 5) IMPROVED OVERALL SYSTEM SURVIVABILITY-"GRACEFUL DEGRADATION/FAIL SOFT". THE PROGRAM WILL DEFINE THE FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE DISTRIBUTED INTELLIGENCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM IN TERMS OF SYSTEM CONTROL SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS ALGORITHMS FOR DATA PROCESSING AND DISTRIBUTION, AND COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK REQUIREMENTS.
