Abstract:

The RAND Strategy Assessment System (RSAS) is a global warfare analysis system developed over the last decade for the Director of Net Assessment in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. This document reports on the new map graphics package for the RSAS, which we call RSAS Map. RSAS Map allows the user to examine the location and status of ground, air, and naval forces on a map. The user may click on one of the ground unit, airfield, or ship symbols and is given a more detailed display; for airfields, this includes their location, facilities, and air units assigned. RSAS Map also allows the user to monitor and determine the status of theater battles, showing where commands are joined in battle with a large green star burst. When air support and other supporting fires are provided to a command, a smaller, yellow star burst is shown next to the command symbol and name. The commands may be selected to see a listing of all of the units associated with the command, by mission, with further detail available at the unit level. The star bursts may be selected to get a summary of the battle or the fire support provided.
