Abstract : The Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) has collected and analyzed information on battle management algorithm technology that is relevant to Battle Management/Command, Control and Communications (BM/C3). This Memorandum Report represents a program plan that will provide the BM/C3 Directorate of the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO) with administrative and technical insight into algorithm technology. This program plan focuses on current activity in algorithm development and provides information and analysis to the SDIO to be used in formulating budget requirements for FY 1988 and beyond. Based upon analysis of algorithm requirements and ongoing programs, recommendations have been made for research areas that should be pursued, including both the continuation of current work and the initiation of new tasks. This final report includes all relevant material from interim reports as well as new results.
