Abstract
The objective of the present document is to present a modified version of the OODA loop, the MOODA. For the M-OODA loop to remain a useful tool in the context of documents defining the armed forces doctrine on C2, any modification has to keep explicit the high-level representation typical of the OODA loop, while accommodating dynamic and control concepts. The M-OODA incorporates explicit control and flow components more in line with the current understanding of military C2. It is based on a modular structure in which a module operates as a simple control system. A module is a task-goal directed activity formed of three core components (Process, State, and Control). A number of modules are structured in an OODA loop fashion and interconnected by feed-forward and feedback loops. The M-OODA model provides a compromise between that high level view of C2 decision-making, valued in military documents, and an expansion accommodating the basic C2 functions on information handling, processing, communicating and the coordination and direction in C2.
