Systems architecture for a tactical Naval Command and Control System

MetadataShow full item record
Command and control (C2) is an enigma that has been studied by military leaders and warfare analysts for hundreds of years. As a result of the numerous definitions and concepts of C2, the design of C2 systems is a challenge to systems engineers. Adding to the challenge is the understanding and integration of new operational concepts, such as Network-Centric Warfare, identified by stakeholders as necessary to meet operational needs. Through the use of a system architecture methodology, this thesis created a general vision of the systemidentified the boundaries of, inputs to, outputs from, and objectives for the systemdescribed what the system was to do with the identified inputs to produce the desired outputsdescribed the resources that comprised the system, the procedures by which the system was used, and the controls on the systemand proposed two alternative system architectures from which an analysis of designs could be conducted. From this methodology, numerous points of integration between doctrine and material, as well as areas for future effort and study, were identified to assist in the development and integration of net-centric systems and net-centric doctrine to meet the command and control needs of future tactical naval forces.
