Abstract : The Joint Theater Level Simulation (JTLS) is a hex based simulation modeling joint and combined forces. Its focus is the theater level of operations. Ground units are typically battalion or brigade sized units while individual aircraft and ships are modeled. JTLS was originally designed as a conflict model for course of action analysis work. Over the past few years it has undergone numerous, significant enhancements. This paper introduces JTLS' current capabilities and suggests possible uses for missions associated with MOOTW, including peacemaking and peace enforcement operations. These include, but are not limited to, airspace control, Lines of Communication (LOC) protection (land, air, and, sea), Non-combatant Evacuation Operations (NEO), blockades, and nation building.
