Abstract : This is an interim report on the 1986 work on the extension and development of the C3 EVAL model. The model is to permit assessment of the effects on combat of changes in command and control processes and communications network structure and capacity. The model has had a partial preprocessor added to assist possible analyst/model users to input data and a post processor to provide graphic display of some outputs. The command structure includes the Central European command nodes from division to SHAPE for US forces. The nodes have had input and output limits added to permit representation of degraded operation as under attack or when the unit is moving. The corps level force allocation procedure has been improved. Some processes have been randomized. The corps operates on information different from the available at the division or combat unit, due to time delays, randomness, scenario inputs and corps controls allocation of corps support resources . The impact of changes in the C3 system can be seen in changes in weapon losses, non-arrival of close air support and messages delayed/lost as well as other operations-related elements.
