Abstract
This thesis addresses the problem of modeling the decision processes in the Airland Research Model. The Generalized Value System (GVS) is presented as a tool for evaluating the power and value of entities throughout the battlefield at present and future times. Precise definitions and procedures for determining various aspects of power and value are presented. The GVS provides the basis for an approach called future state decision making. An example is given which shows how the approach is used to make decisions at the present time based on what the situation is expected to be in the future.
