Abstract : This report describes the implementation of an Information Collection and Correlation (ICC) decision support system to aid in the process of combat information evaluation in Marine amphibious operations. The system demonstrates the feasibility and effectiveness of the ICC concept by implementing several decision aid modules that were specified in last year's report. It aids the Intelligence Officer to organize numerous pieces of data received from different sensors into a cohesive and summarizing format. This is done by aiding the operator to generate and maintain different tracks, where each track must be supported by at least one sensor report. The tracks reflect the analyst's knowledge about the reported entities while the supporting sensor reports reflect the facts that substantiate his process of deduction. The ICC system has been implemented on a portable computer and can be used as a nucleus for further development of the ICC concept. (Author)
