Abstract : This thesis has developed a planning aid to be used by the airborne air defense commander in the development of his air defense force structure recommendation to the brigade commander. The planning aid presented is a version of multi-attribute utility measurement (MAUM) that provides the commander with a simple and understandable means of organizing multiple inputs in selecting equipment. By working through the steps of the model the commander will be required to rely heavily on use of his judgement; by doing so he will gain significant insight into the interdependencies of the inputs. The MAUM version selected is simple to use and easy to learn. Its format is also flexible and can be adapted to all world-wide scenarios. It provides a time-effective means for developing a force structure and when finished will provide the commander with a format that accommodates an understandable recommendation. (Author)
