Abstract:

This report provides an overview of the Integrated Corps Model, a simulation of ground and air-ground combat. The ICOR model is a two-sided, event-stepped, unit-centered simulation of ground and air-ground combat. It can include any size geographical area but normally a corps size area is used for the Blue forces and an army area for the Red forces. This might cover an area 100 km x 300 km. In this scenario there would be approximately 500 units in its current configuration. The basic units represented are battalions. These units maneuver in accordance with operation orders issued to them by a man-in-the-loop commander and by automated decision making processes which govern unit movement and operational status. The man-in-the-loop performs the functions of the commandcontrol hierarchy above the basic unit level. Each unit includes various assets including individual weapons, trucks, supplies, and other as initially assigned. They fire and are attrited using a weapon on target type of attrition mechanism. The terrain representation uses a hexagonal grid of 3.5 km resolution in which various type of roads and rivers and varying degrees of roughness, forestation, and urbanization are represented. Units move from hex to hex, interacting directly with units in adjacent hexes, as governed by their operation orders.
