This paper presents a concept which helps in understanding the Command and Control (C2) process associated with a well-trained team of military commanders each being an expert in problem-solving in his particular tactical warfare area, and has been delegated C2responsibility and authority over his resources by his superior commander. It is argued that due to his individual training a commander develops a principal expert model (PEM) of the warfare area in which he has specialized, which allows him to make superior tactical C2decisions based upon the tactical information available to him. In addition, as a consequence of centralized mission planning and team-training of the entire C2organization, each commander develops aggregated mutual expert models (MEM) of the PEM's of the commanders that he strongly interacts with and competes for common team resources. This concept is referred to as the expert team of experts (ETOE) methodology.
