TRAC WSMR implemented several enhancements to the CASTFOREM high resolution combat model to enable analysis in support of DoD FCS program acquisition decisions. The overall framework for FY06 FCS network analysis centers on the inherent linkage between the performance of components of the FCS C4ISR network and FCS force level outcomes. This framework suggests that the performance of the supporting C4ISR systems influences the quality of information available to the decision maker. That information drives the level of situation awareness that the decision maker achieves and the quality of the decisions published. Those decisions in turn enable the effective application of the elements of combat power and drive the observed force level outcomes. This paper describes major M&S enhancements and a methodology to assess the above linkage. We discuss CASTFOREM communications modeling and information flows, platform situational awareness (SA) databases and common operational picture (COP), decision-making logic, and fusion algorithms
