Abstract : This thesis presents a high-resolution stochastic combat simulation model which will simulate the effects of a persistent chemical agent attack on a ground force unit. The model is suitable for inclusion in simulations which are capable of tracking individual soldiers and delivery munitions, and can provide explicit ground and air concentrations. This model will simulate the immediate measures by a soldier in response to a direct or indirect persistent chemical agent threat, such as masking, donning protective clothing, immediate decontamination, and first aid. It will compute the dosages received from multiple agents. These actions are performed in response to probabilities and probability distributions which are inputs to the model. This thesis includes an implementation of the model written in the SIMSCRIPT II.5 programming language for inclusion in the Simulation of Tactical Alternative Responses (STAR) model. (Author)
