Abstract : Report developed under SBIR contract. The objective of this SBIR project was to define, analyze, and evaluate the current C41 environment in the NSSN and prescribed the information management practices, hardware integration opportunities, and improvements to C41 that could achieve the following goals: improve the quality of decision support information, accommodate new information sources, guide future development, and provide design direction for interfacing subsystems. The SBIR effort was in response to an existing combat systems development environment where new information requirements(to support new missions, information processing capabilities, or sensor technologies) were accommodated within the overall system by the introduction of new "vertical subsystems", and not through exploitation of opportunities to integrate information or by introducing new IM&M capabilities. The approach was to create a multiple axis model of the NSSN C3IS to identify the areas of System design, mission requirements, and information technology that would most beneficially be pursued.
