Abstract : The Joint Integrated Contingency Model (JlCM) is a global war gaming and analysis system that focuses on conflict from major regional contingencies through strategic warfare. JICM is an outgrowth of the former RAND Strategy Assessment System (RSAS), engineered explicitly to address post-Cold War conflict issues. JICM has been developed to support balance assessment, contingency analysis, and military training. It is a global system because it includes, as part of its release, order of battle data for most major countries worldwide, relieving JICM users of the burden of having to develop such information. (It contains current and projected force data for many countries.) It also includes four baseline cases, covering conflicts in Poland, Turkey, the Persian Gulf, and Korea. These cases have been developed to support the Global Series of war games sponsored by the U.S. Naval War College and other JICM applications. Thus, the JICM comes as a ready-to-use package, although users will also find it easy to develop new theaters for analysis in the JlCM. JICM 1.0 includes development through FY93. Once complete, it will be transferred to selected Department of Defense agencies for use in analysis, gaming, and training.
