The Navy is formulating new visions, strategies, and concepts thatcapitalize on emerging information-age technologies to provide itswarfighters with significantly improved capabilities to meet the na-tionalsecurity challenges of the twenty-first century. A key tenet ofJoint Vision 2020 is that information superiority will enable such newoperational concepts as network-centric warfare that promise deci-siveadvantages over future adversaries. The evaluation of informa-tionsuperiority concepts will require new models and measures thatcapture the effects of improved command and control on informa-tionsuperiority and, more important, on combat outcomes. Thisreport will be of interest to those involved with improving Navy tar-geting,assessment, and information technology.RAND has been asked to develop measures of effectiveness (MOEs)that reflect the effects of changing command, control, communica-tions,computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance(C4ISR) processes on combat outcomes in a network-centric envi-ronment.This report presents analyses of two combat vignettes-one involving defense against a combined ballistic missile and cruisemissile threat and the other involving detection and destruction oftime-critical targets. Mathematical relationships linking network-centricoperations, C4ISR, combat operations, and combat outcomesin a common framework have been developed. The process intro-ducesC4ISR MOEs, demonstrates means of evaluating them, andshows how they can be linked to combat outcomes.This research was conducted for the Assistant for Strategic Planning(N6C), Department of the Navy, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, within the Acquisition and Technology Policy Center ofRAND's National Defense Research Institute (NDRI). NDRI is afederally funded research and development center sponsored by theOffice of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the unifiedcommands, and the defense agencies.About the Author:
