Abstract : Technological advancements have led to increased speed, mobility, and destructive power of military operations. To permit commanders to make tactical decisions consistent with rapid change and succession of events, it is essential that information on military operations be processed and used more effectively than ever before. To meet this need, the Army is developing automated systems for receipt, processing, storage, retrieval, and display of different types and vast amounts of military data. The automated Army Tactical Operations Center (ARTOC) is a prototype of these systems. There is a concomitant requirement for research to determine how human abilities can be utilized to enable the command information processing systems to function with maximum effectiveness.
