The design of command and control systems is a complex task. A critical prerequisite for conducting meaningful research and development (R&D) of command and control (C2) systems is an understanding of the context in which users must perform their tasks – at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels – and for a given scenario. This document is the first in a series of documents that carefully define context for multiple C2 perspectives by proposing a realistic and relevant urban operations scenario. The scenario proposed herein supports robust experimental analyses of decision support systems for command and control design and, more specifically, the information fusion processes underlying decision support systems. The core of the proposed scenario is based on “Urban Challenge 2005” – originally developed for a Kingston Staff College (Canada) exercise – and enriched over time through international collaboration and a NATO Research and Technology (RTO) study. The enriched scenario is presented in an integrated context, and describes Military Strikes in Atlantis. This document proposes a realistic and relevant scenario useful for testing concepts and prototypes for decision support command and control systems.
