Abstract:

This thesis uses the Modular Command and Control C2 Evaluation Structure MCES to formulate and address operational air defense command and control issues for the central European theater. This evaluation structure provides a framework and tools to address C2 issues. The intent is to use the MCES along with the Identification Friend, Foe, Neutral IFFN testbed to address operational issues for this C2 system. The result is a test of the MCES. The MCES approach is expanded with C2 theory and software design techniques. This expanded approach provides the means to build and air defense C2 systems model which can be synthesized to reflect operational employment of the C2 system. This model becomes a descriptive tool for analysts and C2 system users to define and evaluate measures to determine the C2 systems effectiveness. Representative measures are developed for the model at the subprocess functional, C2 process and interactive process C2 system level. Author
