This thesis presents a computer assisted game, based on a current map board exercise at the U.S. Army Signal Center and School, designed to train army officers in the capabilities, organization, and deployment techniques of the Corps Signal Battalion. A team of players using the game direct a simulated signal battalion in a European tactical environment experiencing equipment failures, vehicle failures, and site attacks. The decisions made by the players are similar to those in combat and are entered by means of a remote computer terminal. These decisions include installing and deleting communications systems, connecting and disconnecting equipment, moving vehicles, and establishing communications sites. The computer, acting in the roles of battalion communications personnel, nature, and the enemy, informs the players of its actions by means of the same terminal.
