For a military commander, a system that can offer decision support in the process of command and control, a tool that can provide the space in which to exercise his command and control ability have always been ultimate goals. This is not only because of the complexity of the problem domain but also because of the difficulty in obtaining help from past knowledge and extend past knowledge for solving new problem. This paper intends to present an architecture which incorporates case-based reasoning (CBR) and decision support system (DSS) as a tool for military officers to simulate and to train the military Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) in the decision-making process of command and control. The experiment and evaluation of the case-based decision support system (CBDSS) are also presented.
