Abstract:

The BRL Message Processing Model BRLMPM is a FORTRAN computer code for the study and evaluation of communications systems, message processes, and tactical doctrine. Messages are generated and placed in a queue for processing. Doctrinal rules select messages from the queue and step them through a series of stages until they reach the completed state at which time they are removed from the queue. Inputs characterizing one or more communications systems are used in conjunction with the doctrinal rules to simulate the flow of messages through a communication system. Presently, the model is configured to simulate TACFIRE andor BCS fire missions using scenarios developed by the Human Engineering Laboratory HEL, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. Model outputs consist of a message history file which can be analyzed over many parameters of interest, such as unit, link, or net usage. Further uses of the model are the incorporation of statistical analyses, or the entire model itself into larger existing or planned war games or simulations.
