Abstract:

With military systems becoming increasingly connected and more agile to handle multiple scenarios through technological advances, the challenge remains to design a command and control C2 system that fulfills the rising user expectation given the constraints enforced in the land battlefield. While there is always ongoing effort to narrow the gap between users expectation and constraints on the land battlefield through integrating more sensors, there is a need to manage the users expectation to ensure the effective use of the system for their operations through constant evaluation of the measures of effectiveness MOE. The Langford nine-step methodology provides a repeatable process to successfully develop twelve pairs of meaningful MOEs using the integrative framework to evaluate the effectiveness of using a deployed C2 system in the land battlefield. The integrative framework provides the comprehensive guidelines to develop the MOE with objective values and subjective criteria. The nine-step methods repeatability facilitates the evaluation of the effectiveness of the C2 for each system refinement firmwaresoftwaresystem upgrade or new requirements addition of sensor communication systemprotocol. Each evaluation provides opportunities for the system, process, and organization to improve.
