The goal of this project was to develop an analytical model to evaluate small Unit mission effectiveness with sufficient diagnosticity at the task and capability levels, to support the evaluation of dismounted soldier information systems, or more generally, the impact of any intervention (technology, training, doctrine, etc.) on small unit effectiveness. Three different approaches to measuring dismounted mission effectiveness were reviewed for their suitability for assessing Dismounted Soldier System digital information capabilities. The strengths of these approaches were considered and combined with the results of two subject matter expert workshops to develop a new mission effectiveness model that meets the small Unit information systems aims of this project: the Dismounted Soldier System – Measures of Mission Effectiveness model or DSS-MOME. The proposed DSS-MOME provides a framework and analytical summation process for aggregating up to 122 MOPs to produce mission effectiveness and outcome measures, while enabling detailed traceability and diagnosticity to the task and capability levels. Opportunities for refining and further developing the model are discussed.
