The Adaptive Architectures for Command and Control (A2C2) research project is examining issues in joint command and control, focusing on organizational adaptation. The project includes a series of “human-in-the-loop” experiments at the Naval Postgraduate School. The experiments are in three tiers, ranging from basic to applied/operational research, with tier 1 being the most basic. Four tier 1 experiments have been conducted to date, all employing the DDD-III simulator as the experimental driver. The DDD is designed for this type of research. It offers a high degree of control and supports on-line collection of data. It also involves a high level of abstraction, which is well suited to basic research. The basic A2C2 research will continue, but the research is also beginning to branch into the more operational/applied arena. The A2C2 team has selected the Marine Corps MTWS as the experimental driver for tier 2 experiments and has installed MTWS at NPS. The fifth A2C2 experiment used MTWS to reexamine selected research questions from experiment four, focusing on the performance of Joint Task Force decision-makers in model based and traditional JTF architectures. The architectures used in experiment five resemble as closely as possible those used in experiment four.
