The Dynamic Model of Modern Military Conflict developed by Dr. Paul Moose, Naval Postgraduate School, is described by its system of differential equations followed by an investigation of its behavior. This investigation is predicted by an analysis of the model's stability about equilibrium using a method attributed to the study of ecosystems. The basis for this analysis is the formulation and subsequent evaluation of a community matrix termed the conflict matrix for this investigation. Specific investigation of the model's behavior is observed varying the Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C³I) enhancements of one combat force against that of an opposing force while one force utilizes misinformation and deception as a counter C³ tactic and the other uses physical destruction as a counter C³ tactic. Potential military use of this model as an analytical tool for playing "what if?" type wargames is envisioned following further research and study of the effects on model behavior by varying other parameters not specifically addressed in this initial investigation.
