This paper actualizes the concepts described in a companion paper subtitled “Essential Concepts.” Here the authors use those concepts in a methodology for investigating whether making purposeful changes in a postulated set of canonical forces will change the levels of both the Boardman-Sauser “differentiating characteristics” for systems of systems and, in turn, cooperation and operational performance in an operating human activity SoS-the U.S. Counterterrorism Enterprise. The methodology recreates a real-world case-the enterprise's response to the Christmas Day Bomber-in an agent-based, game theoretic model (n-player, iterated “Stag Hunt”).
