Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; This paper seeks to analyze the command and control issues arising from the advent of NCW. It aims to contribute to a practical understanding of the concept and an implementation approach for NCW by attempting to provide an analytical framework, the various options/models, and considerations across the spectrum of NCW issues. While information superiority is not a new concept, the blazing speed of advancement in information technologies has brought about dramatic changes to our lifestyles and profound changes in the conduct of modern warfare. This led to the birth of Network Centric Warfare (NCW). NCW offers great opportunities to dramatically enhance combat prowess by exploiting shared situational awareness, increased speed of command, improved systems' lethality and survivability, and greater flexibility achieved through self synchronization. However, these revolutionary changes do not depend on technology alone. In order to achieve the full promise of NCW, the entire span of elements ranging from organization, doctrine, and operational concepts to training must co-evolve. The success of NCW is dependent on aligning the organization's commitment, resources and efforts, fostering a learning and innovative culture...

Approved for Public Release; distribution is unlimited; This thesis is a summary of the capabilities of the Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS) and the guiding Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) documents as they apply to the ATCCS. Its purpose is to strengthen the knowledge base of Army officers entering the Joint C4I curriculum by providing a summary of Joint and Army C4 doctrine and guidance as it applies to ATCCS. ATCCS is the Army's primary Command and Control (C2) system at echelons corps and below. ATCCS consists of five smaller systems, each a Battlefield Functional Area Control System (BFACS) controlling seven Battlefield Functional Areas (BFA). The five BFACS are: the Maneuver Control System (MCS), the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS) , the Forward Area Air Defense Command, Control and Intelligence System (FAAD c2I), the Combat Service Support Control System (CSSCS), and the All Source Analysis System (ASAS). A clear strategy for the functional design of ATCCS is supported by three documents. Related to and supportive of each other, the three documents are: Joint Pub 6-0, Doctrine for Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems Support to Joint Operations; The Army Enterprise Strategy consisting of The Vision and The Implementation Plan; and Army Field Manual 100- 5...

U.S. Navy organizations have implemented disparate Command and Control (C2) visualization methods for each surface combatant platform class. As a result, information uncertainty is introduced and the overall decision making process is impeded for the mission. A common architecture could resolve some of the aforementioned unsatisfactory aspects of the current situation and could also result in cost reductions. This report applied a disciplined systems engineering process to design a Command and Control Unified Architecture (C2UniArch) with focus on enhanced understanding and visualization of information. Functional analysis and modeling tools were used to validate and create estimations about performance for the As-Is systems as well as the alternatives that met feasibility constraints. An assessment was made on candidate architectures' performance and training benefits. The report was successful in demonstrating the benefits of a C2UniArch as quantified by the architecture analysis which met stakeholder and mission requirements.; NA

Approved for public release; distribution in unlimited.; This thesis argues a case for focusing command and control efforts more towards conflict deterrence vice conflict resolution and proposes a conceptual design for a command and control system to accomplish this paradigm shift. It also addresses the issue of shortening the Observe, Orient, Decide, Act (OODA) Loop of a decision-maker to enhance control while disrupting an adversary's control of a situation. Accomplishing these goals requires some method to handle the overabundance of data available for processing and analysis. The proposed system would use advanced, but existing, information technology, incorporating cybernetic models, to enhance a decision-maker's control process. It does this by collecting, processing, and fusing all-source data for presentation to a decision-maker. Natural Language Processors categorize, filter, and fuse relevant data while advanced visualization engines display that data in a way that improves a decision-maker's ability to rapidly assimilate infonnation, and increase knowledge and understanding. This thesis shows that using cybernetic models, and advanced Artificial intelligence tools, a design exists that could help increase understanding and control by improving the decision-making process and shortening the decision-maker's OODA Loop; http://archive.org/details/conceptualdesign00oluv; Lieutenant...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; This thesis examines the development of the measures for evaluating new tactical command and control (C2) systems such as the Combat Vehicle Command and Control System (CVC2). Using those measures it discusses the various techniques available to evaluate CVC2 and recommends the selection of one technique. In order to establish a strong foundation for understanding the needs of a battalion task force C2 system, the systems, processes, procedures, and standards available to the commander are detailed. These assets are related to Orr's Combat Model to aid in the understanding of C2 at battalion level. The thesis concludes with the benefits, advantages, disadvantages, issues, and potential of CVC2.; Captain, United States Army

Since national, regional, or continental borders do not hinder transnational terrorist organizations, a Theater Special Operations Command is forced to conduct operations across a wide range of political and social environments. Special Operations Command-South (SOCSOUTH), the theater special operations component of the United States Southern Command, has determined that each sub-region within its area of responsibility has particular nuances that require separate and distinct command elements. Due to this determination, SOCSOUTH has decided to revise its approach to the command and control (C2) of all special operations forces operating throughout Central and South America. SOCSOUTH calls this new C2 approach "Distributive C2." The purpose of this thesis is to conduct a thorough analysis of the SOCSOUTH Distributive C2 concept and propose recommendations for improvement of its effectiveness and efficiency. Using multiple theories of organizational design and recommendations based on personal observations and interviews, this thesis will propose a long term command and control structure for SOCSOUTH. The authors hope to provide SOCSOUTH and other theater special operations commands with a C2 structure that will allow them to better coordinate and prosecute their war on terror mission across multiple sub-regions and ensure proper integration into a larger global counter-terrorism strategic plan.; US Army (USA) author.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; Command and control activities have long been recognized as a vital part of military operations. From shouted battlefield commands to today's information-age warfare, it is those who have mastered the techniques and applications of command and control who have most often prevailed. As critical as it is to our success, it is a topic that is controversial, often poorly understood, and subject to wildly different interpretations. This thesis examines the command and control process, consisting of people, information, and structure, and the interaction between the function of command and the systems that facilitate the process. It is intended to serve as a roadmap for the study of this topic from a foundational standpoint by first exploring the doctrinal definitions used throughout DoD and developing a sense of what command and control is, and equally important, what it is not. It then focuses on the components of the process and the dynamic relationships that exist between them. Finally, it considers our future, as outlined by such visions as JV2020 and Network-Centric Warfare, in hopes of identifying and understanding those things that will challenge us in developing an effective process. Command and control influences every facet of warfare. In preparing for a future that calls for increased use of technology and systems...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; The United States Army is presently conducting evaluations of the Combat Vehicle Command and Control (CVC2) system. The CVC2 system is being developed to assist battalion level commanders and below with their command and control functions. Current evaluations of the system have been focused at the platoon and company levels. This thesis proposes that the greatest benefit of the automated system will be to support battalion level command and control functions. This paper provides; a description of the CVC2 system and the functions it is designed to perform, a description of the process and system used by combat battalions to execute C2, identification of the information requirements of a commander, proposed measures of performance (MOP's), measures of effectiveness (MOE's) and measures of force effectiveness (MOFE's) to be used to evaluate the CVC2 system at battalion level. An evaluation methodology is proposed and areas of concern relating to the implementation of the system are discussed.; Captain, United States Army

The Coast Guard's software architecture does not meet the organization's needs for information sharing or command and control. The Commandant of the Coast Guard recently mandated the implementation of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to address this problem. This thesis describes a Service Oriented Architecture for Coast Guard Command and Control that integrates legacy applications and provides new capabilities. Traditional software architecture descriptions make it difficult to identify and understand the trade-offs between quality attributes that are inherent in the design. We clarify these critical issues by using multiple scenarios and use cases, in addition to diagrams and functionality requirements. Defining the architecture in this manner enables an auditor to determine the architectures validity. The Coast Guard also needs a plan to implement this SOA. This thesis defines a process that will deliver value in the form of usable capabilities in an incremental manner. It recognizes the constantly changing nature of both the problem and the necessary solution, and evolves accordingly. It continually plans for, adapts to, and exploits predictable advances in technology to deliver more value. The iterative method we propose includes cyclical evaluation of the system requirements...

Recent joint operations such as the ones in the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Haiti, and Bosnia are examples of some of the missions the military is expected to conduct in the future. The missions and available forces varied, and not surprisingly, so did the command and control architectures. The purpose of the initial A2C2 experiment was to examine the relationships between organizational structures and task structures involving competition for scarce assets, to serve as an integration vehicle for the project's previous efforts, and as a baseline for further research. This thesis attempts to answer the following questions: 1) "Are there statistically significant differences in the outcomes of competition events based on the particular experimental conditions imposed?" and 2) "is there a viable method for determining the processes involved in the resolution of competition events, and can it be accomplished without the use of human monitors, i.e., can a tool be developed to determine the processes used in the resolution of competition events after an experiment is conducted?" The answer to both questions is "yes"; although in the case of the first question, a qualified yes. Programs the author developed to satisfy the second question are included.; NA; U.S. Navy (U.S.N.) author
