Support of the National Military Command System (NMCS) is the priority objective of the DACCS. The DACCS provides information so that appropriate and timely responses will be selected, directed, and communicated by the National Command Authorities (NCA). Also, the DACCS supports the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) in the carrying out their responsibilities. The DACCS satisfies information requirements on Army matters from the National Military Command Center (NMCC), other Service operations centers, and other elements of the World-Wide Military Command and Control System (WWMCCS). b. Another objective of DACCS is to provide the Secretary of the Army (SA) and the Chief of Staff, U.S. Army (CSA) with information, plans, and intelligence, so they may- (1) Make fast and efficient analyses and timely decisions in peacetime, crises, and wartime. (2) Communicate decisions and monitor their execution. (3) Carry out military missions and provide direction to the major Army commands (MACOMs). (4) Apply resources in support of Army forces. AR 525-1 1-6. Functions of the DACCS a. The DACCS is the HQDA system that supports the National Command System and the Army leadership by providing the information, plans, and intelligence required to execute their responsibilities for command and control of Army forces. DACCS supports the concept of the Army Command and Control System (ACCS) per AR 11-39. b. The function of DACCS at HQDA involves all elements required by the SA and the CSA for command and control of the Army forces and resources. These elements include the entire organization of personnel, equipment, communications, facilities, and systems available to HQDA. As an integrated and survivable system, DACCS incorporates standard command and control procedures and responsive systems. These procedures and responsive systems are used for the fast and efficient handling of selected, critical, and operational information during peacetime, crises, and wartime. Such systems include those for planning, directing, controlling, processing, reporting, and communicating. The single, imperative function of these integrated responsive systems is that they provide joint and Army decision support in a total systems environment. c. The DACCS supports the command and control functional tasks of the NMCS by providing information used to- (1) Monitor the current situation to include the status of forces. (2) Formulate responses to warning and threat assessment. (3) Select options, employ forces, and carry out operation plans. (4) Assess attack, strike, damage, and residual capability. (5) Reconstitute and redirect forces. (6) Terminate hostilities and active operations. AR 525-1 1-7. Organization of the DACCS Major elements of the DACCS are the staff, data bases, information systems, automatic data processing (ADP), communications, additional capabilities, and facilities of HQDA and the MACOMs. These elements include those of Army Component commands.

AR 525-1 Chapter 2 Concept of Operations AR 525-1 2-1. The support system a. The system. The DACCS, in its support role, operates in two modes. It provides for the formulation of decisions through monitoring, collecting, and exchanging essential information. It also provides for the timely execution of decisions through directives distributed by multiple communications systems. The reporting systems, JRS and DAXREP, transfer summary data upward to HQDA. Normal communication channels and crisis action systems send messages and orders downward and across to the Army Staff, field operating agencies (FOAs), and MACOMs. Two examples of preplanned responses are the DAEAP (AMOPS, vol IV, annex M) and the Emergency Administrative Actions (EAA) (AMOPS, vol IV, annex N). The DAEAPs are carried out when notice is received from the JCS of a change to the Defense Readiness Condition or a change to emergency conditions. The EAAs are selected measures, already in position, that can be rapidly implemented during mobilization and thereby minimize communications. Information flows upward, downward, and laterally throughout the DACCS. As an integrated decision support system, the DACCS- (1) Supports the SA and the CSA in the command and direction of Army forces and resources. (2) Operates according to normal command channels and staff procedures and under the policy guidance of the CSA. (3) Collects, processes, displays, and distributes essential data from all commands and the Army Staff. (4) Fulfills, when required, the emergency and general war command and control requirements of HQDA. b. The support. The DACCS must be capable of performing all functions required to support the full spectrum of command and control. This spectrum ranges from day-to-day operations to the application of conventional and nuclear forces. Support elements of DACCS are as follows: (1) Staff elements. Established staff elements identify information needed by the SA and the CSA for operational decisions. The Army Staff and MACOMs follow up in the execution of these decisions. (2) Data bases. The data bases maintained by HQDA and the MACOMs must be readily available for prescribed input to the DACCS. Information in the data bases used for decisionmaking is critical and time-sensitive. Therefore, this information must always be current and in the form needed by the DACCS. All DACCS facilities and systems must support the integration of required data. (3) Information systems. To plan, conduct, and monitor Army operations, the information and data must flow rapidly. It must flow vertically in the chain of command structure and laterally between HQDA, FOAs, and MACOMs. Dedicated, vertical, management- related information systems generally provide inventory control, requisitioning, and status of information for resource management. Originally designed for processing at fixed installations in a peacetime environment, these systems are currently difficult to relate to crisis management planning and execution. They must be modified for crisis and wartime processing support. Force and resource information of the DACCS is retrieved, in summary or extract form, for multiple vertical and horizontal information systems. (4) ADP. ADP systems provide capabilities for data acquisition, storage, processing, and display. They support decisionmakers, their staffs, and subordinates. ADP systems must be secure, reliable, effective, survivable, and easy to access and use. Computer requirements must be identified. Moreover, computers must be installed to gain access to data bases and information systems needed for decisionmaking at HQDA. A wide variety of data must be automatically processed to meet time-sensitive or accuracy requirements. DACCS can acquire, store, process, display, and transmit data to meet these requirements. (5) Communications. Long-haul communications needs of the DACCS are satisfied primarily by the Defense Communications System (DCS); specifically, the DDN, DCTN, AUTOVON, AUTODIN, and AUTOSEVOCOM. (6) Manual procedures. Information needs do not always lend themselves to automation. For example, to develop their own appraisals of the situation, decisionmakers often need firsthand information from commanders. When possible, an alternative capability, procedure, or manual backup system must be developed to support operations in case the ADP equipment fails. Thus, not all information needed by the SA, CSA, and other decisionmakers and their staffs can or should be automated. (7) Additional capabilities. The DACCS requires additional capabilities such as the capture of source data, graphics terminals, graphics conferencing, large wall screen displays, action prompters, plotters, executive aids, briefing support, communication concentrators, and video displays. AR 525-1 2-2. DACCS facilities DACCS facilities interface with the NMCS and exchange data with the operations centers of other Services and Department of Defense (DOD) agencies. As described below, DACCS provides a link and support to AOC, emergency relocation sites (ERS), and Department of the Army (DA) alternate headquarters. a. The AOC, Pentagon. The mission of the AOC is to provide HQDA with a 24-hour a day command and control facility and system that connects with the Army elements around the world and other elements of the Department of Defense. When augmented under emergency conditions, the AOC becomes the Army Command Center (ACC). Specific functions of the AOC are to- (1) Represent the Chief of Staff, Army and serve as the point of contact on Joint matters during nonduty hours. (2) Serve as the central point of contact for the Army Secretariat and Staff for information of a critical, immediate nature during emergencies. (3) Supervise and manage the DA emergency communications systems to include the Army Switch Telephone System, teletypewriter facilities, secure worldwide voice system, and the worldwide teleconference facility.

Coordinate AOC activities of HQDA emergency relocation sites. (14) Maintain the DA file of code words, nicknames, and short titles, and coordinate related policies and procedures. b. ERSs. ERSs are required to ensure the continuity of essential HQDA operations during wartime. Operations centers are provided at each ERS in accordance with the HQDA COOP. c. DA alternate headquarters. Selected subordinate Army commands are designated as DA alternate headquarters by the HQDA COOP. These commands will- (1) Perform functions prescribed in the HQDA COOP. (2) Plan for functions listed in the command's COOP. (3) Consider, for COOP planning, ADP facilities available to the alternate headquarters. However, these commands will not acquire ADP equipment solely to support the COOP mission. AR 525-1 2-3. Command and control systems of MACOMs a. The command and control systems of MACOMs will meet the priority requirements of the NCA, CSA, and MACOM commanders. MACOM information systems interfacing or transmitting data to HQDA will comply with the standards of informational input that apply to all DACCS reporting systems and to all technical standards that are issued by USAISC. b. MACOMs that are Army Component commands must also be responsive to the unified command systems within which they operate. c. Conflicts in compatibility standards or reporting requirements will be reported to HQDA(DAMO-ODM), WASH DC 20310-0440. d. Conflicts in technical standards will be reported to HQDA(DAIM-AD), WASH DC 20310-0700. AR 525-1 Chapter 3 Joint Reporting Structure (JRS) AR 525-1 3-1.

JCS Pub 6 requires chiefs of Services to maintain Service reporting systems to support the information requirements of the OJCS. Decision support at HQDA for the DACCS reporting system requires the following: a. Collection of key, summary level data by MACOMs and FOAs. b. Timely transmission of summary level data from MACOMs and FOAs to HQDA. c. Staff action at HQDA to determine priorities for the allocation of units and resources to meet operational requirements. d. Management actions at HQDA to coordinate the resolution of resources and force problems. e. Capability to support planning, coordinating, directing, controlling, and making decisions regarding forces and resources needed for military operations. f. Integration of resource management information systems at each echelon (installation, MACOM, subordinate headquarters, and HQDA). g. Management and monitoring of force requirements and force shortages by the Army Staff and MACOMs. This action will be based on HQDA policy and procedures to meet Army objectives. h. Identification by MACOMs and subordinate headquarters of operational and information requirements. Identification is based on HQDA policy and procedures for the allocation and distribution of resources. i. Modification and revision of current reporting directives to provide crisis action and deliberate planning support from systems. Such systems may involve planning, resource management, command and control, information resources or technology, reporting, and communications. j. Development of an Army-wide information system that provides critical, key, and summary level forces and resource information in displays for HQDA decisionmakers. Displays must be timely, accurate, and meaningful. AR 525-1 4-6. Reporting policies Establishing and maintaining the DAXREP is based on the following reporting policies: a. Report routing will be according to individual report instructions. In some cases, reports do not have to be routed to HQDA. b. Reports for the DAXREP are drawn from many functional areas, including personnel, intelligence, and logistics. Include reporting requirements in the DAXREP only if they are essential to the command and control of forces and resources. c. DAXREP will support reports on essential, operational information requirements of HQDA and subordinate command levels. The essential, operational information requirements are needed for decisionmaking throughout the command and control process that supports mobilization and deployment operations (AMOPS, vol III, annex N). To reduce reporting and communications loads, continuous efforts must be made to standardize and coordinate operational information requirements. However, these requirements will not be compromised or restricted due to standardization with other systems or limitations in communications capabilities.

The product leaves the physical confines of the ADP operational element and is transmitted either to organizational elements within the data processing installation or externally to other organizations. Army Command and Control System (ACCS) The facilities, equipment, communications, procedures, and staff essential to Army commanders to plan, direct, and control operations. Army Operations Center (AOC) A facility, operated in the Pentagon, that supports Army authorities in commanding and directing Army forces. It serves as the operational information center for HQDA and, in time of emergency, is staffed with operations personnel representing all major staff elements of HQDA(HQDA COOP). Continuity of Operations (COOP) Continuous functions, tasks, or duties needed to accomplish a military action or mission in carrying out the national military strategy. It includes the functions and duties of the commander and his or her staff. Department of the Army Command and Control Reporting System (DAXREP) A system designed to control Army Staff and MACOM reporting. It includes all recurring, non-JRS reporting requirements directly related to the planning, execution, and postoperational analysis of military operations. Information Data that have been processed by automated or manual means and in a format that can be used by a decisionmaker to satisfy a knowledge requirement. Information control agency An Army organizational element, as defined below, that assists in controlling information used in the DACCS. a. Directing agency. The agency that provides the basic directive, oral or written, by which an information requirement is implied or established. This agency may also be the initiating agency. b. Initiating agency (proponent agency). The agency that develops and establishes the specific format, content, definitions, procedures, and instructions for an information requirement. An initiating agency assumes primary responsibility for the operation of the information reporting system. c. Monitoring agency. The Army agency assigned responsibility for the Army action on, or implementation of, an information requirement from a non-Army agency. If compliance requires initiating supporting information requirements within the Army, the monitoring agency is also the initiating agency of such supporting information requirements. d. Preparing agency. An agency specifically required by the information requirement directive to compile, process, reproduce, convert, and submit all or part of the required data or any summary or extract of them. e. Using agency. An agency responsible for receiving and taking action (other than to review, approve, or forward) on data submitted in response to the information requirement. The initiating agency is commonly, but not always, a using agency. At an intermediate stage in the flow of the data, an agency may be both a preparing agency and a using agency. Information requirement directive A directive that initiates, revises, or modifies a requirement for management information and assigns responsibility for its preparation, compilation, processing, summarization, or use. It also prescribes needed instructions, procedures, information sources, definitions, and forms. Information system A repetitive means consisting of standard procedures, personnel, equipment, and, if an automated system, software. Joint Reporting Structure (JRS) A centrally coordinated catalog of recurring joint, individual Service, and DOD agency reporting requirements necessary to support command decisions in planning, execution, and post- operational analysis of military operations which provides to the maximum extent possible the information required for the National Command Authorities (NCA). Management information Information used for decisionmaking in executing the functions of planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating, evaluating, and controlling to accomplish management missions and tasks. Management information product (MIP) A transmission of data containing information collected in response to an approved management information requirement. The information may be in a narrative, tabular, or graphic form. It may be transmitted orally, in a manually produced report, or by an ADP final product. Management information requirement (MIR) A requirement for information to be collected, processed, and transmitted on a periodic, as required, or one-time basis. An MIR may include a requirement for several information products, data inputs, and data outputs. MIRs will be processed manually or by ADP equipment. Management information system (MIS) An organized assembly of resources and procedures required to collect, process, and distribute data for use in decisionmaking. National Command Authorities (NCA) The President and the Secretary of Defense or their duly deputized alternates or successors. National Military Command System (NMCS) The priority component of the WWMCCS designed to support the National Command Authorities in the exercise of their responsibilities. It also supports the Joint Chiefs of Staff in carrying out their responsibilities. Operations center A physical grouping of those elements of the General and Special Staff sections concerned with current operations and support. It provides the following to the senior authority of the headquarters. a. A central point for assembly and display of essential information required for making decisions on operational matters. b.
