Abstract : A need has been established by several commands for an automated battle staff briefing system. This project analyzes a new off-the-shelf software package which is compatible with the in-place hardware of several commands. It concludes that the new software package offers some advantages over software presently in use, but also has some disadvantages which keep it from being totally effective.
