A high resolution deterministic combat model is analyzed in this thesis. Actual Republic of Korea (ROK) terrain data is employed in the model. The goal of the thesis is to analyze key parameters which are routinely used in high resolution combat models. These parameters are attrition rate coefTicients, force size, courses of action, and the Weiss parameter (in the equation for Helmbold type combat). The model's scenario divides the battlefield into three regions; indirect fire, minefields, and direct fire. Lethality of Firing Theory and Lanchester type differential equations are used to compute unit casualties and unit speed in a discrete time increment. The model's output (unit casualties and survivors, duration of battle, loss exchange rate) are termed of Measures of EiTectiveness (MOEs), which are analyzed by Utility Theory and Game Theory methodologies. Sensitivity analysis is applied to each battle option to determine how changes to one or more input parameters affect the models output. Additionally, the model operates in an interactive mode using network attribute data. The model can easily be expanded or modified to satisfy a user's requirements by adding submodels or changing input data.
