Abstract : SIR NEM (derived from Strategic International Relations Nuclear Exchange Model) is a simulation system involving a group of special purpose computer programs which serve as modules to be assembled according to the analysts' purposes and problems. This flexibility in assembling components makes it possible to apply the SIR NEM simulation system to a large variety of arms control problems involving weapon system analyses, and to conduct each analysis as is logically valid and with the desired detail, the necessary constraints, and the required precision. The SIR NEM system is designed to simulate the use of weapon and reconnaissance systems, including aircraft, missile, and satellite systems, from fixed or mobile bases on land and sea, against urban, industrial, or military targets.
