Abstract : The National Military Command System Support Center (NMCSSC) of the Defense Communications Agency, acting in support of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for System Analysis (OASD/SA) has developed Program ABMPLOT - Plotting capability for ABM-I Model. Program ABMPLOT was designed to augment the printed outputs of the ABM-I Model by providing plots, map overlays and support listings. The NMCSSC has developed Program ABMPLOT to aid in the interpretation and analysis of scenarios at various points during simulation runs of the ABM-I Model. Initial input data is generated via a 3800 Preprocessor implemented on the CDC 3800 computer from output tapes of the ABM-I Model. Plot tapes and support listings are then produced by program ABMPLOT implemented on the IBM 360 computer. The plot tapes are further processed on the CalComp 718 plotter to produce the actual plots and map overlays. (Author)
