Abstract
This paper describes he use of design and analysis of experiments to calibrate an agent-based simulation model of a peace-keeping mission. The situation depicted in a refugee camp scenario in which de-escalation of enraged civilians is required by military personnel. Calibration was determined by ensuring that the military actions in the simulation properly followed the typical rules of engagement and the expected reactions of both civilian and military forces. The expectation were determined by subject matter experts including military personnel and psychologists.
