Abstract:

This thesis presents an analysis of the application of the Modular Command and Control Evaluation Structure MCES to the Identification Friend, Foe, or Neutral IFFN Joint Testbed. The MCES and IFFN Testbed evaluation approaches are also compared. MCES is a structured approach to evaluate Command and Control C2 systems which uses standard and evolving operational research tools. The MCES approach provided the IFFN Joint Testbed an air defense C2 system architecture which became a descriptive tool for C2 analysts to define and evaluate measures to determine the effectiveness of competing air defense C2 systems. This IFFN application served as an evaluation and refinement of MCES as well as a tool for assisting the IFFN joint Test Force in evaluating U.S. Air Defense C2 systems in the NATO area.
