Maritime Headquarters with Maritime Operations Centers, or more specifically the MOC, MOC represents the nexus of Joint and Navy transformation initiatives, lessons learned in the Global War on Terrorism, and progress toward the Sea Power 21 vision. Developing effective globally networked MOCs will require continued development, refinement and acquisition to deliver nearterm enhancement to Navy warfighting capabilities, while transforming the future maritime force to fulfill its role in The Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower. While much is known about MOC employment, more must be learned to achieve its full operational potential. A comprehensive campaign of experimentation is being designed to test the full MOC capability across the entire range of military operations including engagement with joint, interagency and multinational partners. The Adaptive Architectures for Command and Control research program can contribute to this experimentation campaign. In line with the theme of this years symposium -- C2 and agility -- this paper describes an experiment conducted to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of two different MOC organizational structures in conducting a mission planning activity that requires use of scarce intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance resources.
