Abstract : A C3 Technology Assessment Conference was conducted by DCA in response to a tasking memorandum from the ASD(C3I) to the Director of DCA dated May 3, 1985 entitled, 'Technology Projection and Assessment for C3 Systems,' which requested DCA to undertake a projection and assessment of the impact of technology on the future C3 systems of the DoD. This memorandum requested DCA to capitalize on the full spectrum of government, industry and academic R&D efforts relevant to the application of future technology to C3, and to seek profound improvements as opposed to incremental enhancements to current systems. The DCA Plan for accomplishing this task called for the establishment of an informal steering group comprised of members for the military departments and defense agencies, and for the conduct of workshops and data gathering activities, with a preliminary oral report at a conference in November, 1986, and a written report in January, 1987. This is the executive summary of the record of the C3 Technology Assessment Conference.
