This thesis records the method, results, and recommendations stemming from a sensitivity analysis performed on the output of the Janus(A) combat simulation. The analysis was based on a previous National Training Center (NTC) force-on-force (MILES instrumented) battle that was qualified as a Janus(A) scenario by TRACMonterey. The method involved four modifications to the qualified scenario and the use of a factorial experimental design. The factorial design was used to determine the presence of relationships between the levels of four main effects (battle parameters) and two response variables (Measures Of Performance). The thesis concluded that Janus(A) output can demonstrate a statistically significant sensitivity, and that Janus(A) sensitivity is a function of the chosen response variable and the levels of each main effect. Interactions among three of the four battle parameters were also statistically significant. It is recommended that examination of sensitivity analyses of Janus(A) be continued and a post-NTC rotation training similar to the one described in the thesis be pursued.
