Abstract : The emphasis of the research to date is the development and coding of a mathematical model of the ASWC's(Antisubmarine Warfare Center's) tactical decisionmaking process. It is a cognitive simulation in that it not only tries to mimic human response, but tries to solve problems in a humanoid way. The simulation is comprised of three main components. They are: an environmental driver, a situation assessor, and a resource manager. The latter two components represent the ASWC's two primary activities. These correspond to the Hypothesis (H) and Option (O) functions of the SHOR paradigm. The ASWC model and environmental driver are diagrammed. The simulation's input data, environmental driver, situation assessor, resource manager, and output data are described.
