DEFINITION
Human-in-Control

Human-in-Control provides for the positive control of automated system processes. This is accomplished by requiring human action to provide essential high-level commands such as initiate, terminate, and interrupt. With regards to BMD, 10 USC 2431, Section 224 states that: "No agency of the Federal Government may plan for, fund, or otherwise support the development of command and control systems for strategic defense in the boost or post-boost phase against ballistic missile threats that would permit such strategic defenses to initiate the directing of damaging or lethal fire except by affirmative human decision at an appropriate level of authority."
