This thesis is a study in which the authors define and develop a U.S. Army requirement for automatic generation and distribution of near real time battlefield information for command and control. This information consists of identification, position, combat posture, and operational readiness, and allows commanders and staffs to more effectively and efficiently command and control U.S. forces on the AirLand battlefield. The proposed system interfaces with and complements the Army Tactical Command and Control system. Methodologies are developed and applied to determine operational and organizational requirements. A technical solution to the stated requirement is proposed and developed. The technical concept integrates mature, off the shelf, very low frequency, radar beacon and computer technologies in a realistic, technically feasible approach to generate the desired battlefield information. A methodology to assess operational merit is developed and applied to the concept. The proposed solution is shown to be a low cost, low risk, high payoff system which meets the stated requirement. The product of this work is an Operational and Organizational Plan. Keywords: Theses; Near real time information systems
