Abstract : An in-depth description of a layered model for analysis, planning, and implementation guidance of Command and Control (C2) systems is presented. The model provides a comprehensive, structured check list of the necessary functions performed at each echelon in a command hierarchy. It is also a tool for checking that all interoperability requirements can be defined and compared against limiting conditions imposed by system design and integration, and is useful for developing and checking interoperability criteria for both interservice (JINTACCS) and combined operations. The model is intended as a tool for all phases of the C2 engineering process from managing the initial concept formulation through interactive development and initial configuration control, as well as lifetime update, configuration control, and support of an integrated global Navy C2 system. Its application extends to management of interoperability with non-navy C2 systems. (Author)
