In previous papers, the authors have described a theoretical approach to the development of mathematical meta-models, which aim to capture the emergent behaviour of intelligent agent-based constructive simulation models of military conflict. These intelligent agents capture the process of C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance) in such agent-based simulation models. In this paper, the authors present both historical evidence and evidence from experiments using cellular automata models that support hypotheses derived from their theory.
