Abstract:

MCES was developed as a tool to evaluate C2 systems architectures more specifically, for the systematic comparison of C2 and C3 architectures. It is a methodology which may be used for evaluation, employing a common structured treatment. The methodology assumes that capabilities of selected C2 systems can be greatly improved by focussing upon both system and procedural changes. By using seven structured steps, a decisionmaker can choose to utilize recommendations made based on information provided to the process, or resubmit to the system for further analysis. Although this evaluation tool is generic in nature, its structure is such that it can be applied to a myriad of systems to study their effectiveness.
