Abstract:

The scope of this thesis is to tale a first step towards making a combat model user friendly through interactive computer graphics. To accomplish this first step, a graphical support program was developed for visualgraphical representation of a Lanchester-type force-on-force combat model that simulates a small-unit amphibious operation. The graphical support program provides the user with a menu to determine the type of visual display for output data. Three types of visual displays are considered 1 line graph 2 bar chart and 3 grid map. Each type provides a different view of the models output data. By utilizing these types of visual displays, the viewer is provided a supportive method that enables him to analyze and assimulate the model and its output data. Author
