This study's objective is to evaluate the Open Architecture Warfare System Domain Model (OAWSDM) against time critical targets with specific focus on command, control, and communication processes. A functional analysis of the OAWSDM was conducted and synthesized to create the Open Architecture Time Critical Target Engagement Process Model (OATCTEPM). This model represents the notional engagement cycle of a Navy cruiser. Two scenarios were developed to exercise the system: a surprise assault from a number of personal watercraft and a saturation assault in which approximately fifty craft of varying sizes attack. Results from these scenarios were analyzed for system bottlenecks and recommendations were made to improve decision making processes and reduce engagement time. This study concludes that while the OAWSDM may offer no technical flaws in its design, it fails to factor in the role of the human in the decision making and engagement processes. In doing so it overlooks a key factor in the effectiveness of the architecture against surface TCT engagements.
