Over the past three years, a NATO panel SAS-050 has developed the first version of a Command and Control C2 Conceptual Model. The Conceptual Models purpose is to support the exploration of new, networked enabled approaches to C2 and compare their characteristics, performance, effectiveness, and agility to traditional approaches to C2. The Air Forces Kill Chain is a lengthy process thats subdivided into seven events, namely anticipate, find, fix, track, target, engage, and assess AF2T2EA. As an illustrative example of the C2 Conceptual Model, the Models attributes were applied to each of the seven areas in two test cases. Test case one, the Conceptual Models variables were mapped into each of the AF2T2EA events via five bins environment, information, awareness, understanding and decision. The result represented the Conceptual Models process view . Test case two, the Conceptual Models variables were mapped into a set of AF2T2EA required capabilities. For a sub-set of the AF2T2EA capabilities, the Conceptual Model variables were evaluated as to having a high, medium or low correlation to the stated AF2T2EA capabilities. The result represented the Conceptual Models value view. Both test cases yielded expected results reaffirming the Conceptual Models variable listing did not have any major discrepancies.
