The U.S. Army is currently developing a network management system for theater-level communications called the Integrated System Control. One limitation of this system is the lack of a real-time telephone network monitoring capability. Without this capability, communication commanders will not have a rapid and efficient tool for identifying and diagnosing network outages. The current semi-manual network reporting procedures are slow and error prone. This approach implements a real-time software monitoring system which displays the telephone network's status to the operator. This system allows the operator to locate and diagnose network outages in real-time. The result is an Ada program which receives line-of-sight radio shelter status messages and displays their effects on the network's status. The telephone network is represented by a series of display panels. Each panel provides the user with a different level of network detail, i.e., the network level, nodal level, internodal level, or line-of-sight radio shelter component level. The network's objects (line-of-sight radio shelters, circuit switches, telephone multiplexers, and radio and cable links) are represented by individual display objects. A color scheme is used to indicate a display object's status. This program is tested by simulating status messages via randomly reading a file
