Abstract : In July 1985, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) in response to increasing message traffic on the Fleet Broadcast System mandated the creation of the Administrative Message designation and the capability to remove or intercept such messages from the Fleet Broadcast should queue conditions warrant. In June 1986, the Commander, Naval Telecommunications Command (CNTC), promulgated guidance concerning the activation of an administrative message intercept. The CNTC guidance on activation of an intercept was based on output queue level of the congested Fleet Broadcast channel. Based on results generated from a GPSS V simulation of a single Fleet Broadcast output channel and the message responses of the affected Naval Communications Area Master Stations (NAVCAMS) to the CNTC guidance, a more comprehensive framework, consisting of two phases, policy and guidance development and on-station decision making, is proposed for use in decision making on the activation of an administrative intercept. The implementation of the recommended strategy would ensure a decision making process that is sensitive to both the priorities of the policy makers and the variables present in the communication environment.
