Abstract : Continuing decision analytic research and the initial development of several prototype decision aids, for the tactical support of naval task force commanders, are reported on in this paper. Focus is on the potential contribution of advance techniques of decision analysis as decision aids in the development of operational plans and as an action selection tool in the mission execution phase of task force operations. Nine prototype aids were specified and developed to varying degrees for use on the interactive computer graphics terminal.
