Abstract:

A procedure has been developed that is a computerized outer-air battle using interactive graphics techniques. With an interactive graphics terminal as the interface between the analyst and a computer program, the analyst can be placed in the loop and thus act on intelligence generated throughout the simulation of a military operation. Because the decision logic is supplied by the analyst, not fixed in the program, the simulation complexity, model size, and model development time are considerably reduced. The model is a time-step, two-dimensional dynamic simulation written in PLI for an IBM 360370 series computer with a Tektronics 4015 graphics display console and a hard-copy unit.
