Abstract : Decision Support Systems (DSS) have been identified as a solution to the military commander's needs for information filtering and analysis. Current literature on the theory and techniques of DSS design have been addressed to the decision-making processes of commercial applications. The lack of a comprehensive treatment of military command and control decision-making requirements may result in a number of command and control DSS which are not designed for the reliability and flexibility required in a context of everchanging threats. This thesis is an initial attempt to identify some unique considerations for the design of a command and control decision support system and offers suggestions towards the development of flexible, reliable systems to serve commanders in both peacetime and combat operations.
