Abstract : This study addresses the concept and design of a single Joint Service Simulations Model that can be used to develop theater level decision and communications procedures. It specifically proposes continued expansion of the initial model to integrate common features from all Senior Service Colleges into the exercise play in TY 84 and TY 85. The study reveals that: (1) there would be many educational benefits resulting from joint war gaming; (2) senior military leaders support the concept; (3) all the senior colleges are interested in joint war gaming; and (4) the Army and Air War Colleges will conduct a Joint War Game in academic year 1983. Part 1 highlights the action necessary to joint war game between the Army and Air War Colleges. Part 2 provides even more timely recommendations for linking the two schools and specifically mentions satellite linkage and sub-contractor involvement.
