Abstract : The purpose of the model application support package (ASP) is to provide information about the Amphibious Assault Model (AAM) for use in future studies conducted for the Marine Corps. Accreditation of a model requires an assessment of the specific application to determine the suitability of the model to the intended purpose. While this ASP was developed in support of an accreditation process, it was decided that it would be useful to isolate the generic, vice application specific information about the model in a separate document so that others considering the appropriateness of the model to another application might find this compiled information useful and time saving. This document describes the AAM using the modeling taxonomy for warfare simulation, entitled SIMTAX, that was developed during a series of Military Operations Research Society (MORS) workshops in 1986 and 1987. SIMTAX was published by MORS and distributed by the Joint Staff (JS) as part of their 1989 catalog of models. (KAR) P. 2
