Overview Edit

The C4ISR Cooperative Research Program (CCRP) has the mission of improving DoD's understanding of the national security implications of the Information Age. Focusing upon improving both the state-of-the-art and the state of the practice of command and control, the CCRP helps DoD take full advantage of the opportunities afforded by emerging technologies.

The CCRP pursues a broad program of research and analysis in information superiority, information operations, command and control theory, and associated operational concepts that enable the DoD to leverage shared awareness to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of assigned missions. An important aspect of the CCRP program is its ability to serve as a bridge between the operational, technical, analytical, and educational communities.

The CCRP provides leadership for the command and control research community by:

  • articulating critical research issues;
  • working to strengthen command and control research infrastructure;
  • sponsoring a series of workshops and symposia;
  • serving as a clearing house for command and control related research funding; and
  • disseminating outreach initiatives.
