AGATE is a dynamic, two-sided, expected-value, combat-interaction model of ground battle, including air attacks on ground targets and counterair defenses by ground forces. It is designed to measure the impact of a weapon system characteristics, b organizational structure, c doctrine and tactics, and d terrain and environment on the outcome of battles. The tanks, armored personnel carriers APCs, artillery, air, and counterair systems that make up the combined arms team, together with the battle plans of each weapon system, are brought together in the model so that the contribution of each to the outcome of battles and firefights can be examined.
