Abstract:

The COmbat SAmple GEnerator COSAGE model is a stochastic, symmetric, two-sided combat simulation model implemented in SIMSCRIPT II.5. This model is primary used as a calibration for Attrition Calibration ATCAL base theater-level models including the Joint Integrated Contingency Model JICM, Synthetic Theater Operations Research Model STORM AF, follow-on to Thunder, and Integrated Theater Engagement Model ITEM Navy. In 2009 it was determined that CAA would re-write the model in C in order to improve the modularity, ability to enhance the methodology and model maintenance. This paper focuses on the entire development process of the new model from the decision to re-write the model to the testing and evaluation prior to model deployment.
