Abstract : The basic purpose of the ABIS Task Force was to better align the science and technology program with the emerging Joint Vision 2010. The Task Force sought to develop elements of a C4I strategic framework that could guide key planning, architecture, and programmatic efforts and ultimately shape doctrine and training development. The ABIS Task Force was established as an initial step in forming a partnership between the Director of Defense Research and Engineering (OSD) and the Director of Command, Control, Communications, and Computer Systems (Joint Staff). Initially, the Task Force was asked to identify important operational capabilities and needed technology initiatives for an advanced battlespace information system. During the course of the effort, the task was expanded to include identifying follow-on actions that are needed to ensure the timely evolution and fielding of new operational capabilities.
