Abstract:

Saber is a theater level, multi-sided, airpower employment computerized wargame that can be programmed to simulate any combat scenario. The model simulates theater level combat between air and land forces, and takes into account the effects of logistics, resupply, and both theater nuclear and chemical warfare. The major objective of the Saber model is to provide a suitable educational platform to allow users to apply basic, tactical employment concepts to multiple combat units, each having a specialized mission, and incorporating every branch of the armed services. This thesis documents a graphical user interface and data management system that has been developed to execute the Saber theater level wargame simulation. It is a continuation of two previous efforts, and is one component of three thesis efforts designed to develop an integrated, on-line simulation of the Saber theater-level wargame.
