The Marine Air Command and Control System (MACCS) is composed of a collection of legacy, stovepipe Automated Information Systems (AIS), each of which contain functionality which is widely duplicated throughout the MACCS. A proposed alternative architecture, the Common Air Command Control System (CAC2S) , would leverage the investment currently being made in Command, Control, Communications, Computing, and Intelligence (C4I) systems which provide a robust set of functional services common to a wide range of mission critical applications. A plan for migration from the MACCS architecture to the CAC2S architecture is a required component for a successful transition. This thesis describes the messaging and database methodology, the ongoing efforts to identify common data types and processes, and a proposed three tier distributed object architecture, which will guide the MACCS migration to the CAC2S. A software Engineering tool, the Naval Postgraduate School Computer Aided Prototyping System (CAPS), is used to model a component of the MACCS, the Sector Anti Air Warfare Center (SAAWC), in an effort to more precisely identify the critical data type representations and data processing requirements needed to properly specify the CAC2S. As a result of this effort, a blueprint has been created to describe the methodology and analysis required to effect the migration from the MACCS architecture to the CAC2S vision
