Abstract
Over the past five years, the Canadian Forces Warfare Center (CFWC), a unit within the Canadian Joint Operations Center (CJOC), has conducted a series of experiments referred to as the Coalition Attack Guidance Experiment (CAGE). These are structured as human-in-the-loop experiments, conducted at an operational headquarters level by in situ military personnel assuming operational roles. Although each CAGE has had its own emphasis and purpose, the focus of the most recent CAGE was battlespace deconfliction. This included the physical and electronic requirements of each operational position in a Headquarters, such as the command and control systems for joint fires support co-ordination. The interaction between participants and their computers was recorded, providing the data for analysis. These results showed the applications that were most required and those that were not, as well as the applications that could be expected to use the most bandwidth. This information may be used in planning for the construction of a Theater Operations Center and in equipping the essential personnel.
