Abstract:

There is a difficulty in incorporating information value judgments into configuration management decisions regarding command control systems. This thesis reviews two command and control process models, decision theory as it relates to command and control and the current tactical data link configuration management method. The Delphi method is discussed and a means of incorporating its use into configuration management is introduced. The Delphi method allows a systematic gathering of subjective information from selected respondents which then enables formulation of a group position. Use of this method would enable subjective assessments, such as perceived operational impact of tactical data link changes, to be systematically considered in Navy tactical data link configuration management decisions.
