Background/Objectives: In order to facilitate bilateral command, control and communication (C3 ) planning and coordination between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States (U.S.), we studied command and control interoperability of two countries. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Survivability of C3 facilities, continued operational capability of ADP (Automated Data Processing) support and reconstitution of the U.S. and ROK telecommunications network are addressed in Phase 1 study. The Phase 1 study team identified the principal combined, U.S. and ROK C2 facilities that house the interfacing C2 organizations and the telecommunications networks that link the C2 facilities. Findings: The survivability of the theater-level combined U.S. and ROK C2 facilities, the capability for continued operation of the C2 ADP systems and the U.S. Defense Communications System (DCS) transmission network in Korea that supports inter-facility communications are studied in this report. Improvements/Applications: From this Phase I study, we found that operations of a transportable Alternate Command Post (Alt. CP) need to be fully practiced to ensure the ability of exercising command and control under degraded situation
