Abstract : This paper describes the key features of the Scenario Toolkit And Generation Environment (STAGE) software. STAGE provides an environment for the development of real time tactical situations. It uses menus and additional pulldown menus for easy entry of data and provides a powerful display capability including a dynamic link to the positioning of entities on the display. STAGE supports user written scripts, which are associated with individual platforms, to dictate the behaviour of each entity. User written code, known as user modules, allow the user to extend the capability provided by STAGE (by expanding) the scripting mechanisms, replacing existing models and providing access to STAGE's internal data structure. Use of STAGE and a course of action for developing scenarios is described in this paper, along with a worked example giving detailed listings of all data, profiles and scripts required to run a simple scenario.
