As the technological capabilities of the worlds combat systems grow at a breathtaking pace, the reins by which humanity regulates and directs these instruments of destruction must keep pace. Unmanned Tactical Autonomous Collaboration and Control UTACC is a system of systems that will reduce the cognitive load of the warfighter while enhancing mission effectiveness. With any emerging concept, testing and development of UTACC are critical underpinnings of successful deployment to operating forces. This thesis sought to determine which measures of performance and measures of effectiveness MOPMOE are most critical to the development of UTACC. The MOPMOE development process involved establishing a baseline layer of the Marine Corps Troop Leading Steps. The authors aligned the appropriate troop-leading step with phases in the context of a reconnaissance scenario. The next layer consisted of previously developed Coactive Design tasks and Individual Training Standards from the Marine Corps Task List associated with reconnaissance. The final product addresses both technical and tactical tasks required for efficient and effective mission accomplishment for any unit integrated with UTACC, but the effort is far from finished. Follow-on efforts should refine and expand the list to include different mission sets, tactical tasks and unit composition.
