Abstract : This research investigated the feasibility of applying software engineering technology to the Air Force wing command and control (C2) domain. As part of this research, domain analysis and object-oriented techniques were investigated and a specific approach was chosen to analyze the domain. Analysis of the domain resulted in an object-oriented domain model that captured the key objects, operations, and associations, and behavior of wing C2. The domain model was used to design and implement a prototype software tool that enables wing decision makers to assign resources to mission tasks and to make assessments about automation's impact on wing C2 operations.
