Title: Qualitative Simulation of Human Command & Control System Effectiveness Topic: Assessment, Tools, and Metrics

Abstract

Capturing information for performance modeling of the human aspect of C2 performance can be difficult and time consuming. Usually, a parametric approach is favored, but overall, technology performance is used to calibrate performance. It is difficult to determine or assess the aspects of human performance in the technologically driven C2 systems. This paper presents a novel approach using a qualitative evaluation metric based on fundamental matrix algebra. It is assumed that the performance of C2 to be achieved can be speculated by the commanders based on units to be commissioned and technological capabilities of the units. The ACAD software which allows commanders to simulate courses of action planning based on battle assets is used to demonstrate the model efficacy. The model illustrates the composite measure of C2 based on mission, as well as unit effectiveness based on the expectations of the higher command.
