The purpose of this research is to demonstrate the usefulness of integrating human-in-the-loop simulations and agent based modeling. The integration of a human-in-the-loop simulation with an agent based model can model information technology systems. This integration allows analysts to exploit the strengths and advantages of each of these two model types.(More)
In order to maintain an edge during this time of unprecedented technological growth, the Army must field Infantry soldier systems quickly; however, the cost of doing so without some assessment of utility is quite high. Therefore, the acquisition community must estimate the operational impact of proposed systems with an increasing degree of accuracy. For(More)
In April of 2003 the American Army launched an attack into the heart of Baghdad called the Thunder Run. The 3<sup>rd</sup> Infantry Division saw most of the fighting against sizable force of moderately well armed Iraqi Army soldiers. This paper provides an in depth look into utilizing the Thunder Run scenario in conjunction with Joint Conflict and Tactical(More)
The Army acquisition community requires high-resolution simulations that represent the dismounted infantry soldier in enough detail to conduct an analysis of alternatives (AOA) for individual weapons and equipment. These models must also be capable of assessing future, proposed capabilities and technologies. Previous work established a detailed,(More)
The overwhelming success of the Patriot Air Defense weapon system during Operation Desert Storm has become a double edge sword for the system's enlisted crew members and their families. During the war, the Patriot system became the first proven means of defending against Tactical Ballistic Missile (TBM) attacks. The people and the governments of Israel,(More)
