A methodology for analyzing and assessing the effectiveness of command, control, and communications (C3) systems is developed. The analysis is carried out by characterizing separately both the system and the mission in terms of attributes. These attributes are determined as functions of primitives that describe the system, the mission to be performed, and their context. The system capabilities and the mission requirements are compared in a common attribute space. This comparison leads to the evaluation of partial measures of effectiveness that are then combined to yield a global measure. The methodology is illustrated through an assessment of the effectiveness of a communications network operating in a hostile environment.
