Computer software is vitally important to today's command-control (CC) systems. 'Software' here refers to all the computer programs, and their associated documentation, that give purpose and direction to computer hardware, tailoring it to serve the information needs of a user and help him make decisions. This report forecasts the characteristics and capabilities of software technology likely to be available in the 1980s for use in Air Force CC system applications. It also compares estimates of future CC requirements with projections of software technology, points out gaps between the technology necessary and that likely to be available, and outlines R+D strategies to overcome these deficiencies.
