Abstract : This thesis involves a methodology for the development of stand-alone artificial intelligence programs for inclusion in a yet to be developed theatre level wargame for the Conventional Forces Analysis Division (CFAD) of the Force Structure, Resources, and Assessment Directorate (J-8) of The Joint Staff. It uniquely addresses some of the limitations observed in the Tactical Warfare Model (TACWAR), extending the current research effort at the Naval Postgraduate School. The artificial intelligence programs will simulate the decision making processes that a theatre level commander would make according to his perception of the environment, aware that his intelligence may be incomplete and possibly incorrect. The decision process is based on military doctrine derived from Clausewitz, Jomini and Napoleon, and involves allocating reconnaissance assets, acquiring and validating intelligence data, maneuvering forces, command and control, and assigning specific mission objectives. Wargame, Command and Control, Reconnaissance, Intelligence.
