This thesis develops a prototypical model for the planning of maneuver unite and engineer obstacle placement for the Airland Research Model under development at the Naval Postgraduate School. The model utilizes a multidimensional network for the representation of terrain and presents two algorithms for combat panning. A mid-European scenario for a brigade in defense is used to contrast the model solution to combat planning problems with established tactical doctrine. The prototypical model demonstrates that network methodologies provide an efficient means for terrain representation in large scale combat modeling.
