- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO assessed the Navy Command and Control System's data fusion management, focusing on group commanders' data fusion needs and capabilities at sea and ashore.
GAO found that: (1) Navy funding difficulties extended automated data fusion development, but the Navy planned to develop new system plans and modify existing systems; and (2) the Navy contended that current data fusion capabilities were ineffective and would remain technically unsatisfactory until the Navy achieved full fusion capability.
