This study addresses the issues concerning the upgrade and reuse of computer simulation models and presents a comprehensive methodology-The Fidelity Enhancement Process-for conducting a model upgrade. Recent advances in software technology-specifically object-oriented programming and open architecture system development-have made this process feasible and provide unprecedented opportunities for model reuse. The Fidelity Enhancement Process was developed and applied to the Marine Corps Communication Architecture Analysis Model (MCCAAM) during its upgrade. MCCAAM simulates Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) single-channel communications architectures. MCCAAM was modified to evaluate architecture performance under different allocations of next-generation radios to units in the MAGTF, where the performance of an allocation was tactically driven.
