Command and control for distributed lethality
MetadataShow full item record
Exercising command and control (C2) during naval distributed lethality operations presents a complex system of systems (SOS) challenge in support of maritime control. Applying a model based systems engineering (MBSE) approach to C2 within the distributed lethality environment requires development of methodologies to provide definition and structure for existing operational concepts while providing conceptual growth space for new operational techniques. This study develops a systems architecture approach to defining the C2 models for decentralized and distributed command structures and proposes criteria for assessing functionality and impacts to the C2 of naval platforms during distributed lethality operations using MBSE. The C2 modeling for distributed lethality documents the interconnections and relationship of information flow and the system requirements for maintaining the interconnection links during a simulated operational deployment of an adaptive force package (AFP). This modeling structure provides for an architecture view of the functions and measures of effectiveness that provide criteria for decision making during the operational planning of a distributed lethality mission. Development of an initial architecture enables future modeling and architecture refinement through simulations of the C2 structure and further research into technologies and methods of effective communication systems.
