This thesis extends the development of the Airland Research Model ALARM, an on-going research effort at the Naval Postgraduate School, in the areas of generating tactical boundaries through avenue of approach generation and the development of a plan over time for the commitment of ground combat forces. Terrain analysis on the basis of flow rate is used to develop zones of action on a network. Through these zones of action, avenues of approach are determined to represent the movement of regimental size units. Development of a defensive plan for ground combat forces is based on the generalized value system GVS, which is an integral part of ALARM. The plan produced is a series of missions over a planning time horizon for the units of a brigade in the defense, planning to fight a motorized rifle division. Theses
