Recent joint operations such as the ones in the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Haiti, and Bosnia are examples of some of the missions the military is expected to conduct in the future. The missions and available forces varied, and not surprisingly, so did the command and control architectures. The purpose of the initial A2C2 experiment was to examine the relationships between organizational structures and task structures involving competition for scarce assets, to serve as an integration vehicle for the project's previous efforts, and as a baseline for further research. This thesis attempts to answer the following questions: 1) "Are there statistically significant differences in the outcomes of competition events based on the particular experimental conditions imposed?" and 2) "is there a viable method for determining the processes involved in the resolution of competition events, and can it be accomplished without the use of human monitors, i.e., can a tool be developed to determine the processes used in the resolution of competition events after an experiment is conducted?" The answer to both questions is "yes"; although in the case of the first question, a qualified yes. Programs the author developed to satisfy the second question are included.
