Abstract
DRAMATIC INCREASES IN INFORMATION SYSTEM CAPABILITIES AND SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTIONS IN THEIR COSTS COMPARED TO REMOTE WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS IS A POWERFUL ARGUMENT FOR A REVISED ARCHITECTURE CONCEPT FOR C2 INFORMATION MANAGEMENT. REDUCING ON-LINE, INTER-PLATFORM DATA TRANSMISSION REQUIREMENTS THROUGH COST-EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF INFORMATION IS NOW POSSIBLE. APPLICATION OF THE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGY TO THE STORAGE, RETRIEVAL, AND TIMELY PRESENTATION OF COHERENT TACTICAL PICTURES WILL BE IMPORTANT BY-PRODUCTS OF THE EFFORT TO REDUCE THE COMMUNICATIONS LOADING. PROPER INFORMATION MANAGEMENT CAN ELIMINATE THE REDUNDANT USE OF INFORMATION IN DATA FUSION AND CAN OFTEN FLAG INFORMATION NON-AVAILABILITY WHEN IT OCCURS.THE OBJECTIVES ARE: FIRST, TO ESTABLISH C2 INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS THAT SATISFY THE C2 NEEDS OF THE WARFARE MISSION AREAS; AND SECOND, TO CREATE AND PLAN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PHASED ARCHITECTURE OPTIONS TO MANAGE THAT INFORMATION. THE PROCESS FOR ACHIEVING THE OBJECTIVES IS: TO ESTABLISH A CONCEPT FOR A SET OF TIME-PHASED ARCHITECTURE OPTIONS THAT LEAD TO THE SATISFACTION OF TOP-LEVEL WARFARE REQUIREMENTS FOR C2 INFORMATION MANAGEMENT; AND TO CREATE A PLAN THAT WILL PROVIDE FOR THE TRANSITION FROM THE BASELINE ARCHITECTURE TO THE PREFERRED ARCHITECTURE OPTIONS.
