A Unified command and control architecture for improved visualization and decision-making on surface combatants

MetadataShow full item record
U.S. Navy organizations have implemented disparate Command and Control (C2) visualization methods for each surface combatant platform class. As a result, information uncertainty is introduced and the overall decision making process is impeded for the mission. A common architecture could resolve some of the aforementioned unsatisfactory aspects of the current situation and could also result in cost reductions. This report applied a disciplined systems engineering process to design a Command and Control Unified Architecture (C2UniArch) with focus on enhanced understanding and visualization of information. Functional analysis and modeling tools were used to validate and create estimations about performance for the As-Is systems as well as the alternatives that met feasibility constraints. An assessment was made on candidate architectures' performance and training benefits. The report was successful in demonstrating the benefits of a C2UniArch as quantified by the architecture analysis which met stakeholder and mission requirements.
