This thesis reports the findings of a simulation to determine the most effective solution between a dedicated Combat Identification (CID) situational awareness network vensus including CID information on a full functioning network. The architecture used to make this determination was based on the Navy and Marine Corps Extended Littoral Battlespace (ELB) Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD). This demonstration implemented a wide- area wireless battlenet using WaveLan and VRC 99A technologies. The simulation was accomplished with the use of a leading edge simulation tool, EXTEND, and the specifications inherent to wireless communications. EXTEND was used to replicate the protocols that are inherent within the WaveLAN and VRC-99A systems. A feasible sized architecture was modeled utilizing scaling techniques, which simulated the operation of a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB), covering a 2O0X2OO mile wireless tactical battlespace. A full functioning network was developed and then modified to include CID information requirements. A comparison of the data latency between the models was the determining factor. This thesis demonstrates that a ful functioning network is capable of handling CID information requirements.
