This thesis is a comparison of the capabilities currently available in the Joint Maritime Command Information System (JMCIS) to the data link requirements of the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Advanced Tactical Air command Center (ATACC). The evolution of the JMCIS system and its Wlder1ying software design philosophy is discussed as weD as the operational and financial advantages of this philosophy The comparison of the ATACC tequirements and the JMCIS capabilities is done using the Simple Multi-Attribute Rating technique (SMART). The SMART technique assigns weight values to the ATACC requirements and calculates an overall comparison figure for JMCIS. The weight values were calculated from survey data. Survey subjects provided their perception to the relative mission criticality of the ATACC requirements. The subjects for the evaluation were U.S. Marine Corps Officers with air command and control experience, and the evaluations were elicited using the Criterion DecisionPiusw software package. The comparison figure for JMCIS averaged across the survey subjects was G8%. The weighting factors and the model of the requiMnents revealed the shortfalls of the JMCIS system in the area of data link maintenance functionality.
