The United States Army is presently conducting evaluations of the Combat Vehicle Command and Control (CVC2) system. The CVC2 system is being developed to assist battalion level commanders and below with their command and control functions. Current evaluations of the system have been focused at the platoon and company levels. This thesis proposes that the greatest benefit of the automated system will be to support battalion level command and control functions. This paper provides; a description of the CVC2 system and the functions it is designed to perform, a description of the process and system used by combat battalions to execute C2, identification of the information requirements of a commander, proposed measures of performance (MOP's), measures of effectiveness (MOE's) and measures of force effectiveness (MOFE's) to be used to evaluate the CVC2 system at battalion level. An evaluation methodology is proposed and areas of concern relating to the implementation of the system are discussed.
