Military Simulation


My interest in military simulation dates back to my early years of playing with toy soldiers and model ships, through paper and cardboard technology wargames, to computer military simulations. During my years at BDM Corporation (1977-1991) I was primarily involved with the design and development of military simulations for studies and for the U.S. Army. Research since then has focused on technologies to improve such simulations (especially the representation of human decisionmaking). Yet, I also remain involved in the cardboard technology wargames, which in so many ways address things that the computer simulations do not.

The list below includes several papers and projects that reflect these interests.
