Team 10: Peace Support Operations Model
MetadataShow full item record
As the focus of the United States military shifts from conventional warfare toward irregular warfare, interest has grown in the development of models that can simulate social behavior as it pertains to military operations. The contemporary operating environment, as reflected in Iraq and Afghanistan, shows the critical role the population portrays in modern combat. Populations, whether broken into smaller social groups, granulated into individuals, or studied as an aggregate of social groups, are often the determinate of success in modern combat. Therefore, the military’s interest in modeling social cognition has grown out of necessity. The military uses models for course of action analysis, training and rehearsal, and evaluation for acquisition. If these models are not indicative of contemporary operations, they are not only lacking in utility, but are potentially harmful.
