Abstract:

This chapter presents an overview of the design for simulating air combat operations. A highly aggregated model of the process is necessary to avoid excessive expenditure of computer resources and generating unrealistic data requirements. However, certain features appear critical when considering the impacts of air operations in a theater conflict. These features must be included in some reasonable form. The basic air missions need to be represented, and also limiting conditions because of potential lack of availability of aircraft due to heavy demand. The scheduling of aircraft, consistent with availability, flight time, engagement time, return and turnaround time appears to be important. The effects of enemy air defense on the mission performance, the effects of target engagement, and reconnaissance must be considered. Perhaps most importantly, the relative flexibility of air, considered as a high-level combat support resource, must be properly represented. Author
