The Lanchester model is a widely used abstraction of the complexities of combat. Normally, the initial friendly and enemy strengths are assumed to be deterministic. However, in reality, there may be some uncertainty associated with both variables. This paper provides a methodology for evaluating the benefit of reducing this uncertainty by information collection. This technique is derived from concepts of evaluation of perfect information developed in Decision Analysis. Author
