Abstract
A workshop on Command and Control (C2) sponsored by the Chief Research and Development (CRAD) was held in Ottawa on 7-9 May 1996. This forum brought together CRAD scientists and Canadian Forces (CF) officers to provide input on strategic planning for Command and Control Research and Development (C2 R&D). Specifically, the group was tasked to address the "what" and the "how" of C2 R&D. The report documents the results of structured brainstorming exercises on the requirements and opportunities (the "what") for C2 R&D in the near to mid-term. A companion paper documents the structures and processes (the "how") recommended to implement productive C2 R&D. Distinct themes emerged from the syndicate exercise identifying areas for further R&D. Decision support systems and planning tools must be developed to exploit information made available through C2 Information Systems (C2IS). Methods and procedures must be developed to monitor the performance of C2IS. Research is required in determining effective processes for large project C2IS life cycle management from user requirements capture to end user support. Strategies for information management must be developed and built into system architectures. Standards need to be developed for information presentation. Effective programs must be established for initial and operational training. TRUNCATED
