Abstract : This report defines a quantity called tactical outlay, or cost, and describes a procedure for its evaluation. Tactical cost, a quantity of importance in tactical decision making is the value of what is given up when a specific course of action is taken. The procedure to be described was developed as one phase of studies of the military worth of information. The procedure and the associated rationale are also expected to be of use in future analyses of command and control systems, reconnaissance systems and other systems which provide information to decision makers.
