Abstract : This report describes an RADC approach for the application of modeling and simulation tools to analyze and enhance the C3I process. The report is based on detailed examination of both the C3I process and available modeling assets in light of the RADC mission and AF requirements. Included in this report is an assessment of the simulation and modeling State-Of-The-Art and the Air Force needs. The Technical Issues which must be addressed and the impact on RADC programs are discussed. The classic digital simulation approach is also detailed in Appendix A. This discussion on technical issues is followed by a plan to link available RADC models, laboratories and common databases, using a local area network fiber optics/CATV communications distribution system to form a broadbased C3I system analysis capability. The report makes several recommendations toward realizing this C3I analysis capability including an investment strategy, followed by a summary. (Author)
