Abstract
The Adaptive Architectures for Command and Control (A2C2) project is an ongoing research effort sponsored by the Office of Naval Research to explore adaptation in joint command and control. The objective of the project's eighth experiment is to study the adjustments that organizations make when they are confronted with a scenario for which their organizational is ill-suited. To accomplish this, teams will each be in one of two fundamentally different organizational structures (functional and divisional), and each will play two scenarios - one for which their organization is well-suited and one for which it is ill-suited. The purpose of this thesis is to design, test, and implement two scenarios. The background of the A2C2 program and design process of each scenario is described to provide a clear understanding of the methodology behind designing scenarios focusing on specific objectives. Each scenario will prove to be better mission and task oriented for one organizational structure than for the other organizational structure. The Modular Command and Control Evaluation Structure (MCES) is used to design the two scenarios. The Distributed Dynamic Decision-making (DDD) Software is used to implement, pilot and run the scenarios. Both scenarios are to be used for the Adaptive Architectures for Command and Control (A2C2) Experiment Eight in August 2002.
