Abstract : Aliveness analysis is a computational technique which attempts to estimate the expected number of losses had real ordnance been used during a force on force experiment. This thesis carefully follows the development and motivation for the aliveness concept. Examples of aliveness computations are presented with speal emphasis on the SGT York Follow-on-evaluation (FOE). A simple aliveness computer program was used to examine the sensitivity of aliveness adjustments to change in such parameters as probability of kill and target selection method. Keywords: Aliveness, Casualty estimation, Sensitivity analysis.
