The study explores alternative procedures to assist the US Army Medical Research Development Command with decisions concerning the allocation of RD resources to projects, with specific concentration on projects concerned with improvements in Combat Casualty Care. A generic description of medical system processes within selected combat scenarios is used to analyze the impact of medical research and development on the number of casualties returned to duty during the combat period. The analysis demonstrates a methodology for linking medical R D military payoff. A separate volume of this report, Volume II, Technical Annex, presents the major analytical formulations and computer program used during the course of the study. Author
