Abstract : A ground casualty projection system (FORECAS) hass been developed to provide medical planners with estimates of expected daily arrivals of disease and non-battle injuries, wounded-in-action, and killed-in-action rates. Statistical characteristics of these rates are used as a basis from which the simulations are developed. By displaying the dispersion, range, and other statistical properties of casualty and illness data, FORECAB graphically depicts the potential patient flows within a theater of operations.
