Combat information center Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
The Operations Room (also known as the Combat Information Center, or, under the British system, the Action Information Centre) is the tactical center of a warship or AWAC aircraft providing processed information for command and control of the near battlespace or 'area of operations'. Within other military commands, rooms serving similar functions are called by the similar "Command Information Center" or simply "Command center"; the number of different terms for spaces that serve much the same function may explain why the plain and generally non-descriptive "Operations Center" is a prevalent term.
