This thesis is a discussion of the Headquarters Evaluation Assessment Tool HEAT, Command, Control and Communications C3, and the Joint Theater Level Simulation JTLS wargame. The discussion is based upon a history of past environments and present such as a series of experiments conducted at the Naval Postgraduate School in August and September 1987 and the experiment analysis conducted by government contractors and NPS students. Using background material, research documents and analysis reports from government agencies and contractors, this thesis reports on one particular experiment focusing on a comprehensive review. By this, the author hopes to stimulate interest in experimentation and analysis of C3 processes as a means of developing C3 principles. HEATs purpose is to enable a team of internal or external observers to objectively assess and quantify headquarters performance and effectiveness. It was developed to provide quantitative, objective, and reproducible scores which would, in essence, be descriptive of the effectiveness of virtually any headquarters or command, control, communications and intelligence system.
