Abstract : In recent years, key decision makers in both the United States Army and the United States Air Force have realized the need for an understanding of the manner in which both services conduct their missions in a joint and combined arena. CARMAX, a academic war gaming exercise, was designed for the study of joint and combined deployment doctrine. The exercise which was jointly developed as a student research product by both senior services colleges provided a medium through which students could increase their awareness of the need for close coordination between air and ground forces while disclosing potential problems exacerbated by the conduct of war in a joint, combined environment. CARMAX 83 was the realization of an initiative presented by the Army Chief of Staff in 1979 and its importance in the educational process of the professional military officers from the Army and Air Force can only be measured by the facility with which future commanders conduct operations in the joint environs.
