This thesis examines afloat command control with emphasis on the computer-Commander interface. Emphasis is placed on command displays found in Combat Information Centers and on the bridge. The configuration and development strategy for these two areas on SPRUANCE class destroyers are examined in some detail. The planned Aegis Combat System is also discussed from the command control point of view. Several issues in afloat command control are discussed including 1) Role of the afloat Commander and "President-to-Foxhole" communications, 2) Location of the afloat Commander in a crises, 3) Manual backup to computerized command control systems, and 4) The Commander- Computer interface.
