Pagination or Media Count:
Computer simulation is employed to examine the existing Noncombatant Evacuation Operation as it removes military dependents and other American Nationals from the Federal Republic of Germany in the event of conventional war. The model traces the flight of evacuees from their hotels and homes to the United States on military and civilian aircraft. The model examines the relationships between the number of transportation assets dedicated to moving evacuees, the weather, and the number of aircraft dedicated to removing evacuees to the U.S. The study uses the civilian airport at Munich and the military airfield at Rhein-Main as representative evacuation ports, detailing the effects of sixty policy options of transportation and aircraft on the time required to evacuate a fixed population. The results present the time required under each policy to successfully evacuate the fixed populations and the probable number of Americans rerouted to avoid capture. The results also indicate a requirement for further tests of the actual system. Schematic drawings of the networks, the computer programs, and a glossary of symbolsterms are included to allow the reader to replicate or expand the network to test additional constraints or verify the authors conclusions.
