Much of the R&D in Network Centric Warfare has been on technology. Improvements in connectivity and processing speed challenge the integration of technological and human elements into a single C2 framework. The Dynamic Model of Situated Cognition (DMSC) was developed as an analysis method explicitly representing the human- technology relationships. It takes into account that sensors are susceptible to errors and to attack; inaccurate data from technological systems may propagate as misinformation to decision-makers. Any organization, including edge organizations, then makes decisions under uncertainty. This paper analyzes the use of signal validation to address shortcomings of technological systems. The sensor system should present validated information to operators; and, when it cannot, it should identify uncertain information. Signal validation filters the blue forces’ sensor errors and red forces’ information warfare misinformation. As a result, the blue forces are presented with synthesized validated data or are informed it is uncertain. The impact of signal validation on knowledge flows and quality of decision-making in Command and Control processes using the DMSC is simulated with the computational modeling environment POW-ER (Project, Organization, and Work for Edge Research).
