Abstract:

AN OPERATIONAL PROBLEM EXISTS IN A LACK OF MEANS TO TRAIN TOP-ECHELON TACTICAL AIR COMMANDERS AND THEIR STAFFS IN THE COMPLEX DYNAMICS OF TWO-SIDED AIR CAMPAIGNS SUCH AS MAY BE FOUGHT IN EUROPE, KOREA, OR ELSEWHERE. WINING CAMPAIGN STRATEGIES MUST BE BASED ON GOOD UNDERSTANDING AND INSIGHT INTO THESE DYNAMICS, ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO MISSION APPORTIONMENT DECISIONS. THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO COMBINE IMPROVEMENTS IN PERSONAL COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY AND AVAILABILITY WITH AIR CAMPAIGN SIMULATIONS AND WITH EVOLVING TECHNIQUES FROM THE COMMERCIAL WARGAME INDUSTRY TO GENERATE A SIMULATION/GAME WITH GREAT POTENTIAL AS A LEARNING, TRAINING, AND DECISION AID. WE PROPOSE IN PHASE I TO PERFORM THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF SUCH A GAME AND TO DEMONSTRATE ITS FEASIBILITY, BOTH TECHNICALLY AND AS A TRAINING DEVICE. IN PHASE II, WE WILL DEVELOP AN OPERATIONAL VERSION OF THE GAME FOR AIR FORCE USE. PHASE III OFFERS OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEVELOPMENT AND SALE OF ADDITIONAL AIR FORCE VERSIONS AND COMMERCIAL GAME VERSIONS.
