Abstract:

The Division Map Exercise DIME is a comprehensive, computer- assisted war game designed to portray the significant aspects of Air-Land Battle operational doctrine for the Armys primary division strike force structures. It was developed in response to a need for a quick-running low resolution battle simulation with which to address critical analytical combat development questions. Using a map board, a set of computer algorithms and manual rules, DIME portrays the important aspects of the modern battlefield which must be considered in the context of the Air-Land Battle. These include ground combat, air operations and air defense, maneuver, command and control, chemical effects and logistics. The DIME combat model documentation consists of three volumes. This volume is Volume II, DIME DocumentationModel. The other volumes are Volume I, Game Protocol, and Volume III, Classified Data Base and Data Description.
