SIMSCRIPT II.5: MILITARY OPERATIONS


Tactical Air/Land Operations Simulator - TALON

U.S. Air Force Center for Studies and Analyses; Washington, DC

The TALON system provides capability for modeling ground combat, battlefield reconnaissance, air strike allocation, and air strike impact on ground combat.

Originally designed at Headquarters, USAF under the Assistant Chief of Staff, Studies and Analyses, to provide a computerized methodology for addressing reconnaissance force size/mix issues, the program has subsequently been applied to a much broader range of tactical questions, including effects of reconnaissance strategies, sorties rates, systemic delays and the impact of air operations on draw down of forces and the outcome of the ground battle.
