This report asserts that a fundamental flaw exists in current systematic combat models-the use of the so-called present-state decisionmaking paradigm. This paradigm is shown not only to be unrealistic but also to rely on hidden models. The report also presents and examines a proposed alternative -- the future-state decisionmaking architecture of the Generalized Value System [GVS]. This architecture is shown to be more realistic than present-state decisionmaking, yet practical to implement. The necessary elements of the GVS are discussed in detail, and an example presented. Areas of the proposed GVS architecture which will require additional research are also discussed.
