Abstract : The Global Command and Control System (GCCS) is currently operational in the Secure Systems Technology Laboratory located in Root Hall at the Naval Postgraduate School. All subsystems of GCCS are operational with the exception of the Automated Message Handling System (AMHS). The SSTL's efforts to obtain an operational GCCS AMHS depends on the future availability of the Automated Defense Information Network (AUTODIN), and the emerging technology of the Defense Message System (DMS). This thesis examines and compares GCCS AMHS and DMS and the implementation requirements for each. This thesis draws the conclusion that DMS is the dominant system over GCCS AMHS and continues to examine the acquisition strategies and costs required to implement the DMS in the SSTL.
