Abstract:

The 6th International Project Albert Workshop, described elsewhere in this newsletter, is part of an ongoing effort that seeks to exploit the advances in computing power and new technologies in order to provide quantitative answers...to important questions facing military decision-makers Brandstein, 1999. In particular, in his former position as Chief Scientist of the U.S. Marine Corps, Dr. Brandstein was frustrated with legacy models because he felt they were unable to support analysis needs in the rapidly evolving global environment. Areas of particular concern were, and continue to be, our inabilities to adequately deal with the chaos inherent in military engagements, the human dimensions of warfare e.g., leadership, courage, trust unit cohesiveness, and adversaries who adapt their behavior based on perceptions of our strategies and tactics.
