Abstract:

In the front portion of this Technical Memorandum, the general approach to the complete digital computer simulation of Anti-Submarine Warfare ASW Combat is formulated and discussed. The discussion centers upon the three basic components of combat - command and control functions, machines and the environment - and identifies the general parameters and dynamic variables required to simulate these components. While the primary concern is ASW combat, the general principles are applicable to any type of combat. The second portion of this memorandum presents a detailed discription of the simulation of combat between two submarines. In this simulation one submarine is deployed on a Forward Area Patrol Mission. The mission of the second submarine is to transit the patrol area of the first submarine. This digital computer simulation contains many features discussed in the general approach and demonstrates the feasibility of constructing a general ASW Combat Simulation for a digital computer.
