Abstract : Increasingly more sophisticated weaponry necessitates that U. S. military organizations insure timely and responsive tactical command and control systems. Automation is one obvious answer towards accomplishing this goal. The paper may be viewed as a simulation study of file organizations which are typical to command and control systems. It reports the findings of a comparative analysis of five different file organizations to determine their responsiveness to five types of commonly used application subroutines. It also uncovers areas for future research with respect to command and control systems' file organizations. (Author)
