Abstract:

FAST STICK is a computer simulated tactical air employment exercise which serves as the capstone for the theater warfare phase of the Air Forces Air Command and Staff College curriculum. Its main objective is to provide intermediate level Air Force staff officers the opportunity to apply the basic tactical employment concepts of reconnaissance, counter air, interdiction, and close air support. The Air Force Institute of Technology identified several shortcomings of the exercise and proceeded to correct them. This paper describes the exercise, the addition of a scripted scenario generator for land play, and the replacement of the application dependent file structures with a database management system.
