Abstract : The purpose of this work is to identify and examine the disconnects in designing, testing, and using Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence (C4I) Systems, investigate their causes and effects, and determine what can be done about them. To accomplish these purposes, experts involved with researching and analyzing, designing and developing, testing and evaluating, and managing, operating, and using C4I systems offered their thoughts on the subject in structured interviews. These experts represented the military, academic, and commercial C4I communities including the Department of Defense, the Joint Staff, and the Army, Navy, and Air Force Staffs. In this work, the experts' opinions blended well with a review of the literature.
