About this book

This book presents a sample of the state-of-art research on defence support systems. The focus of the volume is on the design and optimization of socio-technical systems and their performance in defence contexts. Conceptual and methodological considerations for the development of such systems and criteria likely to be useful in their evaluation are discussed, along with their conceptual underpinnings in total system performance analysis.
