Abstract:

This paper explores in general terms the organization and characteristics of war games and develops the use of the application of display terminals and information processing equipment to war-game activities. The author identifies particular display requirements and analyzes the data flow between components of the game in order to establish at what nodal points display equipment can be of significant value in terms of increased response and report generation. A minimum equipment configuration is described that should provide war-gaming activities with a solid capability for increased and improved research output. The software requirements to support the computer-assisted war game, with particular emphasis upon the display aspect, is developed in general terms.
