This thesis develops the concept of integrating IDEF modeling with matrix analysis to explore the current state of the Marine Corps, 'As Is', Theater Ballistic Missile Defense information architecture. It demonstrates the possibility of using matrix analysis in conjunction with IDEF modeling to identify deficiencies within an existing information architecture. Using this framework, new technologies and advancements can also be measured to ensure they accurately address deficiencies identified in the analysis. Additionally, this thesis incorporates the knowledge garnered from this analysis into a possible, 'To Be', physical architecture for the year 2002. It examines the 'As Is' physical architecture, technological advances, and environment enhancements, and proposes one possible infrastructure for future theater missile defense. Models have traditionally been developed as analysis vehicles which conform only to administrative processes. This led to minimal utilization of the application and its capabilities. Matrix analysis allows for accurate investigation and documentation of information and systems useful in the development of new technologies. This thesis demonstrates that modeling, combined with matrix analysis, can also be incorporated for tactical processes.
