I was Principal Investigator for integration of the Modern Aids to Planning Program (MAPP), a $6-10 million/year, multi-year computer war games project. This project involved design, implementation and improvement of several simulations and their support structure.  MAPP, performed for The Joint Staff/JAD, provided computer and computational/algorithmic support to JAD and to the US combat commands.  The varied projects performed under this program included air tasking order research, algorithmic research on the State of the Art Contingency Analysis (SOTACA) model, and sensitivity analysis of the Joint Theater Level Simulation (JTLS).  The sensitivity analysis provided one part of the verification and validation process for JTLS.
