Abstract : This thesis outlines the process of Special Force Operations for strategic objectives in theater-level warfare. The thesis designs and develops three models of these operations that can be implemented in Joint Warfare Analysis Experimental Prototype model. The first model is the Target model which selects the Special Operations Force (SOF) targets and optimal routes into the target theater. The second model is the Ingress model which represents the spatial shift of a Special Operations Force to the target area based on probability theory. The third model, which is divided into two pans, infiltration and combat, represents the process of attrition at the target. These three models are used in series to represent the complete SOF operation. An example and initial test of the models is a possible Korean scenario. Finally, recommendations for future improvements to the SOF models and JWAEP are presented.
