dc.description.abstractThe Adaptive Joint Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Node (AJCN) is a new C4ISR system with four functional capabilities: communications, signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare (EW) and Information Operations. This thesis evaluates the first three capabilities of the AJCN: communications, SIGINT and EW. Simulation is used as a time- and cost-effective way to model the AJCN's capabilities. Eleven communications and combat effectiveness MOE are used to evaluate the AJCN's performance. Point of Attack 2, a tactical simulation with an extensive database is used to replicate the AJCN and UA operations. Results of the analysis include: 1) the AJCN significantly increased friendly detection of enemy forces; 2) the AJCN significantly decreased average message transmittal time and the number of failed messages; 3) the AJCN increased the friendly force's capability to jam and intercept enemy messages.en_US
