An Example of Model-Based Empirical Research: A Soup-To-Nuts Evaluation of Alternative C2 Architectures
MetadataShow full item record
This paper will describe the third in a series of experiments conducted at the Naval Postgraduate School in November 1997. In particular, we will discuss the activities and results that led to form the hypotheses for test in the experiment, and the efforts that were needed to actually run the experiment: scenario design, preexperiment modeling, training and experimental design, data collection methods and instruments, simulator software, etc. The detailed analyses of the experimental results and findings may be found in companion papers in these proceedings. The Adaptive Architectures in Command and Control (A2C2) project is an ambitious ONR-sponsored research initiative to: extend 12 years of naval composite warfare decisionmaking research into the joint C2 arena; focus on adaptive architectures within these decision-making organizations; and produce results ranging from purely theoretical to those that can be used by the operational forces in the near term. This "industry-university-government" initiative involves a three-pronged, coordinated research effort that includes field, experimental, and theoretical components. The theoretical and analytical efforts provide models of decision-making and adaptation that are tested via experiments with military officers in joint settings for measurement of individual and team performance in dynamically evolving missions and scenarios.
