The PHOENIX computer model was developed by the US Air Force to provide a method to simulate the activities on an air base that support the generation of sorties as demanded by an air tasking order ATO. The design was then implemented in the SIMSCRIPT II.5 structured programming language. The model was designed to accomplish two purposes first, to generate sorties in accordance with a gamer-specified demand in the air tasking order and second, to depict the effects of an air base attack on the sortie generation. The model was patterned after air bases located in Central Europe and can be used to simulate the activities of either a North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO base or a Warsaw Pact WP base. The generic design of the model, however, does not preclude its use for simulating bases found outside Europe.
