Abstract : This final report gives the results of an effort to adapt an abstract 'theory of combat' architecture which was developed for land warfare to the sea control aspects of naval warfare. The differences between the two forms of warfare are discussed, in terms of the applicability of the Principles of War, the geophysical and operational environments involved and the objectives and modes of combat. The differences in the two warfare arenas are then used to identify the different approaches required in combat modeling to achieve adequate fidelity in simulations for varied applications. (Author)
