Abstract : A methodology for evaluating a large scale C3 system is developed. The first step of this methodology consists of a procedure for evaluating a system using a simple model of it. The second step consists of an algorithm aimed at determining the smallest number of experiments that will enable one to evaluate the effectiveness of an actual C3 system or testbed. This methodology is applied to an abstracted version of an actual air defense system: a mathematical model of this system is presented and the system is evaluated on the basis of this model. The experiment design procedure is assumed to have been implemented and data produced; it is then shown how the actual system would have been evaluated based on these data.
