Abstract : The U.S. Army's reliance on advanced information systems underscores their anticipated impact of battlefield information centers, such as Command and Tactical Operations Centers (TOCS). This job aid was developed for staff members in an automated battalion TOC, as part of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) efforts to explore the impact of advanced information systems on armor operations. Although conventional staff assignments were maintained, the introduction of automated TOC workstations significantly impacted how information gathering, Processing, and distributing functions were performed. This aid provided the TOC's staff members with directions on when and how to perform essential staff actions during real- time battalion level operations. This job aid highlights the need for related training initiatives and may guide developers in their efforts to provide the training support needed as the Army develops advanced information systems.
