Abstract : This note is one of a four-volume set that collectively describes the latest versions of the TSAR(Theater Simulation of Airbase Resources) and TSARINA(TSAR INputs using AIDA) computer models, which were developed at the RAND Corporation to assess the effect of attacks on the sortie generation capabilities of airbases. These new versions replace earlier versions, including the versions documented in 1985. Among more significant new features are those that permit representation of (1) austere dispersed operating bases, (2) attacks on the minimum operating surface (MOS) defined after prior attacks, (3) multi- step parts and equipment repairs, (4) repair of damaged aircraft shelters, (5) improved fidelity in the runway repair representation, and (6) damage generated by the delayed detonation of unexploded ordnance (UXO). This development was carried out under the Project Air Force Resource Management Program project entitled TSAR/TSARINA .
