Abstract : Newly emerging functional area models designed to simulate the activities of individual battlefield operating systems are generating challenging new validation issues for Army analysts. From database to output, these new models require testing against real system performance to insure no significant disparities exist. The Command and Control Network (C2NET) model is a prototype Command and Control Functional Area Model (C2FAM) and exemplifies this validation challenge. This paper examines the C2NET database, input distributions, and linkage mechanism with a force evaluation model as part of C2NET's continuing validation effort. The nonstationary Poisson process is examined and used to develop hypotheses about input distributions linking the evaluation model's tactical scenario with C2NET's input parameters an existing database. Fuzzy set theory is then examined with applications for using C2NET output as input for an evaluation model. Areas for further research are discussed.
