Abstract : The first Army Command and Control System Program Review (CCSPR) was held at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, during 14-16 December 1981. The CCSPR was chaired by the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army and attended by sixty-five other general officers and civilian equivalents. The purpose of the first CCSPR was to recommand to the Army a more effective and survivable tactical command and control system. The CCSPR was based on the definition of command and control from a previous Pub 1. Command and control is the exercise of authority and direction by a properly designated commander assigned forces in the accomplishment of the mission. Command and control functions are performed through an arrangement of personnel, equipment, communications, facilities and procedures which are employed by a commander in planning, directing, and coordinating and controlling forces and operations in the accomplishment of the mission. The functional areas of personnel, equipment, communications, facilities and procedures were considered. The CCSPR opened with a series of background briefings on the threat, status of the CC program, concepts for combat through 2000, and an assessment of the problems. These were followed by four general officer panel presentations, which summarized consideration of a set of major CC issues. Panel coordinators ended their presentations with recommendations to the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army for approval.
