Abstract : Extended Petri nets (EPN) have been adopted to help establish a number of capabilities for the study of military Command, Control, Communication and Intelligence (C3I). Regardless of the specific application, an EPN explanation and analysis capability is very important. This is particularly true where EPN have been used to describe artificial representations of real-world C3I entities. Some explanation and analysis capability is needed so that the underlying assumptions and characteristics of such an artificial representation can be clearly conveyed to, and judged by, an appropriate military domain expert. This document reports a general-purpose explanation and analysis capability for a class of EPN, that has been developed as part of the Distributed Interactive C3I Effectiveness (DICE) simulation activity within Information Technology Division.
