Abstract : This thesis provides the detailed concepts and methodology required to simulate the Corps Communications Module (CM) portion of the Air-Land Interdiction Model. The Communications Module is a closed architecture with rule-based decision making, network design, threat play, and net congestion that closely simulates the environment U.S. Army communications systems face in supporting Corps and selected Theater level units in Europe. The common decision making thread is the Communications Generalized Value System (CGVS) which determines current assets value based on past, present, and future usage. The CGVS provides a basis for quantitative and qualitative decision making that can be studied for cause and effect relationships by means of audit trails. The Communications Module analyzes Corps communications in high resolution detail while dealing with the problems of friendly net congestion compounded by enemy interdiction. When operational, the Communications Module will give U.S. Army communicators a realistic training and architectural planning tool.
