This Note is one of five documents that collectively describe the TSAR and TSARINA computer models developed to assess the effect of air attacks on the sortie generation capabilities of airbases. The Theater Simulation of Airbase Resources (TSAR) model provides an analytic context within which a variety of airbase improvements may be tested. The present Note provides a full description of the logic used in the TSAR model, as well as an understanding of the interrelations among the many elements of the logic for programmers interested in modifying and extending the existing program logic.
