Abstract:

Command and control C2 comprises those policies rules and mechanisms services, implemented through human and synthetic means, required for the effective governance of an enterprise. An enterprise is an arbitrary unit of organization tasked with governance of a mission. We present an enterprise command and control EC2 framework designed to provide DOD enterprises, exemplified by a Joint Task Force JTF, with shared network-accessible C2 services. A JTF is DOD s designated unit of organization responsible for mission-specific joint operations. JTF EC2 includes a precise definition of enterprise, an associated enterprise command structure ECS and a specific set of control processing services CPS. The proposed framework is consistent with the DODs stated goal of migrating to network-centric i.e., GIG-mediated operations NCO. In support of collaboration in jointly managed activities, agile JTF enterprises benefit from service oriented capabilities along their vertical command accountability axes and along their horizontal production logistics axes, allowing them to support a wider range of NCO functions while simultaneously participating in and influencing behavior of multiple communities of interest COIs.
