The SATAN 2 simulation is a model for the two-sided, open play of a tactical nuclear weapons conflict on simulated battlefields. When provided by the user with the required input data, the SATAN 2 computer programs will automatically Deploy forces acquire targets allocate nuclear weapons to fire on those targets assess the effects of those fires perform counter-battery operations and, interface with A Tactical, Logistical, and Air Simulation ATLAS.
