Information superiority can be obtained by enhancement of the command and control system. While weapon systems may have been developed to a point of decreasing returns regarding firepower, command and control(C2) systems can be developed further. The force that has superior C2 may win the fight in the future by information superiority. Currently, there is no appropriate methodology to assess the contribution from the C2 system to improved combat outcomes. This thesis develops a methodology to address Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) by modifying C2 theory developed by D. M. Schutzer. I address the time line that Schutzer suggested as the key to addressing C2 improvements concretely and modify the MOE he designed. Based on this modified MOE, developed through simulation analysis of an air defense scenario, I quantify the improvement in command and control systems by the CEC system.
