Abstract : The Air Defense Model Requirements Document (ADMRD) is a planning document for improving the representation of air defense in Army models and simulations in the Army's Air Defense Model Improvement Program (ADMIP). The ADMRD is used to record an audit trail of study requirements, reviews of models and simulations, and reports of model validation pertaining to air defense phases of the ADMIP. This initial ADMRD documents the findings of ADMIP Phase I, which focused on enhancements to the Army's Vector-in-Commander (VIC) corps-level simulation. Two lines of work were pursued during Phase I ADMIP: (1) improving the ability of VIC air defense algorithms to model short range air defense (SHORAD) weapons and command, control, communications, and intelligence (C31)elements, and (2) developing a linkage between VIC and the Extended Air Defense Simulation (EADSIM), resulting in a VIC-EADSIM model confederation. The ADMRD documents (1) the design of SHORAD improvements to be implemented into VIC in a later phase of ADMIP, and (2) descriptions of ways the VIC-EADSIM confederation can be applied in studies and analyses and limitations to the use of the confederation in studies and analyses.
