Abstract—Based on the structural characteristics of command information system, the super-network model of the system is established. In the system, the four types of basic units with different functions are the supernetwork nodes. And the information flow motifs defined by the specific information flow structure are the edges of the super-network. Then, based on the entropy theory, the x − information flow motif entropy, the n − information flow motif entropy and the n(t) information flow motif entropy are defined. The three levels of entropy are superimposed as an index to measure the structural complexity of the C4ISR system. Verification is carried out through a case of a joint air defense system in a certain area.

Index Terms—Command information system, super-network, information flow motif entropy.
