Abstract
On 7-9 May 1996, the Chief of Research and Development (CRAD) held a Workshop on Command and Control (C2) which brought together CRAD scientists and Canadian Forces (CF) Officers to discuss the "what" and the "how" of C2 Research and Development (R&D). The participants were divided into syndicates to discuss these issues using a structured brainstorming technique developed by the authors. The paper documents the results of the brainstorming exercise on the structures and processes (the "how") suggested for future C2 R&D. A companion paper is available on the requirements and opportunities (the "what") for C2 R&D for the foreseeable future. There was a large amount of consensus on the main findings of this syndicate exercise which were that: a team culture must be established to provide the synergy necessary to exploit these new technologies quickly and effectively; the process of information dissemination and internal communication must be improved to enhance the capabilities of the teams; the future Battle Labs should be exploited to their fullest to provide an experimental environment for C2 R&D; and the organization and structures will need to be improved to streamline the R&D process.
