ABSTRACT

Chemical Warfare Module for the Airland Advanced Research Model (ALARM)   [open pdf - 3MB]

"This thesis incorporates an explicit depiction of chemical warfare (CW) in the AirLand Advanced Research Mode1 (ALARM), being developed at the Naval Postgraduate School based on the Amy's AirLand Battle doctrine. The CW module centers on a planning algorithm using the generalized value system (GVS) for future state decision making. The planning algorithm comprises the Commander's Estimate of the Situation. The GVS quantifies capabilities and importance of all battlefield entities. The CW module represents key chemical staff functions. The algorithm's decision rule is extended, adding aspects of utility theory. The basic concepts of the module are demonstrated in an application computer program running a combat scenario. The program generalizes previous development work on the GVS and the planning algorithm producing a plan consisting of the courses."
