Enabling technologies available today can be integrated to provide the necessary bandwidth, access, and computational power to support advanced global command and control architectures, but humans will ultimately use these architectures to select a course of action. People will continue to make decisions. The interface between the human operator and information collected, processed, fused, and disseminated by these advanced architectures is the element that injects the greatest potential risk of failure within these systems. This thesis examines that interface. The technical and doctrinal aspects of advanced command and control architectures were discussed. The concept of 'information pull' was examined. The role information fusion plays in human situation assessment of the battlespace were delineated. Computer assisted inductive reasoning which exploits human intuitive powers was introduced as a potential design feature in the user interface. Recommendations for its inclusion in future command and control architectures were made.
