Abstract : This report is the final report for the first year of a projected 3 year effort on the continuity of operation in distributed information systems. We define a system model abstracted from a real battlefield information system, define simplifying assumptions to limit and focus the level of research, and present some preliminary results with respect to global system state recovery by means of an example common to recovery and reconfiguration.
