Abstract : This thesis introduces the Modular Command and Control Evaluation Structure (MCES) as a tool which the author recommends for command and control (C2) planners to use when addressing interoperability management problems. The framework of MCES is used to identify the inadequacies of the Marine Corps Technical Interface Concepts (TIC) as an interoperability management tool and provides some insight into how to better define interoperability requirements in terms of message exchange occurrences (MEOs). MEOs are the building block of interoperability, and they can be stored along with their elements of decomposition in an integrated interoperability database (IIDB) for use by C2 planners. Theses.
