Abstract:

Saber is a theater-level, airland combat training model, designed by a number of computer science and engineering students and faculty at the Air Force Institute of Technology AFIT. Saber is intended to replace the Agile model, which is currently used at the Air Force Wargaming Center, Maxwell AFB, Alabama for Theater Warfare Exercise TWX training purposes. This thesis focuses on the progress made towards generating the Saber training model, its ability to meet the objectives specified by the Wargaming Center, and its ability to represent actual combat. Specifically, this thesis is directed towards characterizing, establishing a credibility assessment, and developing a methodology for the Saber model, reflecting its present stage of development. This thesis develops an understanding of the potential of the Saber model, provides documentation needed for future verification and validation efforts, and provides an airland methodology that explains how Saber could be integrated into an airpower employment training exercise at the Air Force Wargaming Center. This thesis also provides a structured approach for accomplishing a credibility assessment, on combat models used for training and education.
