The objective of the program is to develop the process for formulating the plan for a Developing Area Transportation System DATS. This plan must account for those factors involving the security of a particular region and their interaction with those associated with its uniform socioeconomic growth. The process is concerned with the synthesis of a transportation system that may be used for determining the adaptability of various systems options involving socioeconomic and security factors as they relate to the developing area requirements. A simulation program SIMDATS was devised which represents the system under consideration. This simulation may be used in part or in total for validating a particular approach by simulating conditions in an actual region. Such sub-simulation programs were developed and used during this study of a representative region of Northeast Thailand. The typical data used in these simulations were obtained by the SAI team who visited the area during the study period.
