This thesis develops a robust analytical computer simulation model of the Extended Close Battlefield (ECB) to examine the performance of the command, control and communications (C3) systems of the Extended Fiber Optic Guided Missile (EFOGM), using both digitized and non-digitized communications. The ECB is represented by a 24 state Semi-Markov chain formulation. It contains transient and absorbing states that the simulation models using Monte Carlo processes and probablistic time distributions. The primary measure of effectiveness (MOE) used for comparison between the digitized and non-digitized systems is the total time required to process a call for fire (CFF). Sensitivity analysis is performed to compare the amount of time a CFF spends in a queue, waiting to be processed, within the non-digitized system over a variable range of available targets. Additional sensitivity analysis is performed by adjusting the input time parameters of the probabilistic time distributions to replicate the stress of continuous combat operations. While the amount of time a CFF spends in a queue can be brought to zero for specific numbers of available targets, the digitized system outperforms the non-digitized system over all ranges of available targets, using both standard and increased values of input time parameters
