dc.description.abstractThe authors present an introduction to command and control (C2) and establish a foundation for understanding the complex nature of C2 and the C2 process. A historical perspective is presented which demonstrates the importance of effective C2 to national, military, and political objectives. The command and control process is described, and the basic characteristics of a C2 system are specified. The command and control structure of the United States military organization is presented. An introduction to the architecture of C2 systems is described, and a conceptual architecture of the C2 process is developed. The authors describe the U.S. strategic nuclear command and control structure and provide a basic description of the tactical warfighting doctrines and C2 structures of the U.S. Armed Forces including the wartime operations of the Coast Guard. The authors conclude with a fundamental approach to the process involving the evaluation of complex command and control systems.
