Abstract:

Extensions and improvements are described to a previously developed digital computer model for simulating the actions of operational field army personnel performing their message processing tasks during a Tactical Operations Systems TOS mission. The computer model was made interactive via cathode ray tube to 1 enable an experiment to initiate and control computer simulation runs, and 2 allow TOS operators at a computer terminal to perform selected tasks during the simulation. A series of model improvements found desirable, as a result of prior simulation run experience, is described. A revised version of the users manual for the model is presented along with an Interactive Model Users Manual.
