Abstract : In this paper, five different two-species nonlinear evolution equations are described that represent, (a) mixed attrition Lanchester combat with resupply and (b) four different models of information war. Their dynamical properties are analyzed and it is shown that four of the five are environmentally unstable. The meaning of this is interpreted for C3I, counter-C3, and intelligence operations. For the environmentally unstable systems it is shown that the relationships between the parameters in the model are critical in establishing their mode of behavior, whereas initial conditions are critical in determining the actual trajectories of evolution.
