Abstract : Volume VI of the ABIS Final Report is organized into six annexes. Annex A describes the methodological approach used by the ABIS Task Force and the various future operational contexts considered. Annex A forms the basis for determining likely future operational and command and control concepts. Annex B provides the detailed mapping of operational capability, critical C2 functions, and technology needs. Annex B integrates the detailed work of the three working groups into a consistent assessment of the current science and technology program that serves as the basis for an overall set of recommended technology initiatives leading the Task Force's conclusions and recommendations regarding technology initiatives. Annex C provides a brief discussion of the ABIS construct from a system's perspective and addresses key opportunities and challenges at the systems level. Annex D addresses the key issue of progressing beyond the Task Force's work to the fielding and assimilation of technology capabilities in a system and operational context. This annex advocates an important process change to ensure that operational and technical activities will remain coupled as ABIS evolves. Annex E provides administrative information regarding the creation of the task force, its organization for work, and its membership. Annex F is a glossary of key acronyms.
