dc.description.abstractThe Marine Corps has several Tactical Combat Systems at the Infantry Division level and below. The Information-Operations Server Version 1 (IOS v. 1) is a command and control (C2) system with a client-server architecture that when networked offers the Common Operational Picture (COP). The client is called Command and Control Personal Computer (C2PC). IOS was designed primarily to support maneuver, and has its roots in the Navy's Joint Maritime Command Information System (JMCIS). C2PC has been fielded to all Battalion and Squadron level and higher units in the Marine Corps, while IOS resides in Regimental and higher units. The Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS), originally designed by the Army, is the Marine fire support C2 System of Record. Current AFATDS software is tightly coupled to a particular hardware platform. AFATDS is currently being fielded to all units in the Fleet Marine forces. There are several problems with having two stand-alone C2 systems inside the same Combat Operations Center (COC). Among the most pressing problems is the inability for fires to support maneuver without tedious and dangerous manual conversion of data between systems. This thesis explores the software requirements for tactical systems integration of AFATDS and IOS.en_US
