Control of the airspace over the battlefield is a complex task. The control and reporting center CRC, as part of the tactical air control system TACS, plays a vital role in the air defense mission. The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate the utility of the proposed combat identification system - indirect subsystem CIS-ISS, an automated identification feature, within the CRC. This issue was considered through a comparison of the automated system with the current manual system of identification. The primary measure of comparison was the number of hostile aircraft prosecuted during the first wave of a massive conventional attack. Transient Air Defense Zone TADZ, a large Fortran and SLAM based simulation model of the Soviet air defense system in use at FTD, was modified to represent the structure and operating procedure of the TACS. Parametric inputs were made to TADZ based on operational test and performance data for the CIS-ISS and the CRC.
