Abstract:

This Functional Description SPM discusses the feasibility of augmenting the Quick-Reacting War Gaming System QUICK with additional nuclear effects and fratricide avoidance representations and describes the necessary program design and associated program logic required for implementation. Implementation costs in terms of estimated period of effort and analytical and programming man months of effort are also provided. Implementation of the proposed augmented capabilities will considerably improve the results obtained from QUICK, since the added capabilities will account for critical factors not now considered in operational versions of QUICK. The realism of resultant generated war plans will therefore be significantly enhanced.
