Paper Abstract

The combat experience of Desert Shield/Desert Storm revealed major shortcomings in the US Command, Control Communications and Intelligence (C3I) structure, especially in the following areas. The NCA, Pentagon, CIA watched CNN to get a quick update of the strategic picture, while in-theater pilots, especially the F-117 boys, watched to glean the Baghdad Bomb Damage Assessment, thus demonstrating a strong military need for a television based information processing and dissemination system for battlefield or crisis situations.
