Abstract:

COMEL WAR is a communications oriented wargame developed by the Joint Telecommunications Staff Officers Course at Keesler AFB. The war game has been automated to run on a VAXVMS computer. The program allows computer assisted play of the game using a manual gameboard. The game has two portions, an Acquisition Phase and an Operations Phase. In the Acquisition Phase, Players budget for research and development, manufacturing, purchase, and operations and maintenance of communications and electronic equipment for a Joint Task Force JTF. In the Operations Phase, Players allocate the available communications and electronic equipment to units, physical locations, or special missions and then direct the employment of the units and equipment in a war game. The programs are written in structured FORTRAN 77, with extensive comments and external documentation, so that they can be read, understood, modified, and expanded by those with limited programming experience.
