Abstract : This report explains the rationale for and development of automated systems for the analysis of Combat Training Center archive information. Such systems are justified in terms of need, reuse, and technological advances in.computer hardware and software.. The Automated Force Concentration Measurement System, which serves as an example of a successfully developed system, illustrates the advantages of the approach using data from National Training Center simulated combat field training exercises. The system efficiently replicates earlier research findings regarding the massing of attacking forces. (KAR) P. 3
