Abstract : This volume of the User's Manual is intended primarily for those responsible for preparing input materials and for operating the TSAR (Theater Simulation of Airbase Resources) computer simulation model. Volume III will prove useful for this interested in modifying and extending the program logic, or in trying to understand apparent errors. TSAR is a Monte Carlo discrete-event simulation model designed for analyzing the interrelations among the resources associated with a set of airbases, and the capability of those airbases to generate aircraft sorties in a dynamic wartime environment. On-equipment maintenance tasks, parts and equipment repair jobs, munitions buildup jobs, and facilities repair tasks can be simulated for each of up to 63 airbases. Intratheater transportation, communication, and resource management may also be simulated. Asset accounting for each of 11 classes of resources, and for several types within each class, permits assessment of a broad range of policy options that could improve the efficiency of resource utilization on a theater-wide basis. With the companion TSARINA (TSAR INput Using AIDA) airbase attack simulation model, TSAR can be used to examine the sortie generation of a set of airbases subjected to a campaign of conventional and chemical attacks.
