Abstract : The U.S. Army is attempting to standardize short-range air defense command and control procedures. The Reliable STING Early Warning System has been selected as one of the models for this standardization. This thesis analyzes the Reliable STING concept to determine the degree to which it satisfies the users requirements for air defense command and control information and to determine potential enhancements to increase the effectiveness of its early warning capabilities. Analysis is based upon an identification of the users and a determination of their air defense information requirements. The system's ability to apply the potential value of information resources, to satisfy these needs, is the measure of its effectiveness. Proposed alternatives are directed at providing near-term, low-risk solutions to identified deficiencies. (Author)
