Abstract : The Aircraft Penetration Model (ACPEN) is an event store computer simulation of the interaction between surface-to-air missile sites and airframes attempting to penetrate the defended area. Statistical and event data produced by the model in list and tabular form requires item by item comparison for use in planning and analysis. By using a computer graphics software package to present the data produced by the ACPEN simulation, use of the model as a planning and analytic tool is enhanced. Of particular use is a map graphic product which shows spatial relationships and events. The simulation area displayed and composition of the map can be interactively varied by a planner to meet specific planning needs. (Author)
