Information Operation Condition (INFOCON) implementations and specifically the impact these implementations can have on warfighting command and control processes are not yet widely understood or appreciated by the majority of the operating forces. INFOCON actions are designed to heighten or reduce defensive posture uniformly, to defend against computer network attacks, and to mitigate sustained damage to the DoD infrastructure. Experimentation is required to explore the effects on certain command and control processes under various INFOCON conditions. This thesis explored requirements for conducting these INFOCON experiments and resulted in the development of an INFOCON experimental design methodology that can be used as a framework for designing and conducting INFOCON experiments in the field. INFOCON experimentation will provide insights and a better understanding of the effects that these implementations will have on the ability of a commander to command and control his or her forces.
