Abstract:

The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office DMSO and the United States Joint Forces Command Joint Futures Laboratory sponsored the initial phase of a cooperative study addressing the decision factors relevant to decision makers at the operational level of war. The combined study team completed an initial literature review and questioned and interviewed 26 operational level commanders, planners, and analysts involved in the use of MS in support of real world operations from El Dorado Canyon to OIF and on as small a scale as Special Forces operations in Haiti to as large a scale as a Corps assault on Baghdad. The paper reviews the insights and decision factors collected.
