The Composite Warfare Commander - Distributed Dynamic Decisionmaking (CWC-DDD) paradigm is a tool for experimentation and research into the area of command, control and communications (C3) team decisionmaking process in simulated Navy engagement scenarios. It is implemented as a computer-driven interactive game among four person hierarchical teams of decisionmakers on a network of worstations. The paradigm is a compromise between controllability and realism of the experimental environment. The major drawback with the current implementation is the lack of responsiveness of the tasks (attackers) to the actions of the assets (defenders) and the environmental conditions. This thesis details ways to improve the responsiveness of the attackers and the realism of the paradigm by the implementation of a group of if-then heuristics. The five proposed heuristics are designed to make the attackers attempt to evade the defenders while still actively pursuing their mission to penetrate the center of the battle group. The heuristics are implemented in the RAINCOAT version of the paradigm using the C programming language. The heuristics are validated by several military commanders for adherence with the accepted baule doctrine of the Navy's Composite Warfare Command.
