This Note is one of four volumes that collectively describe the latest versions of the TSAR (theater simulation of airbase resources) and TSARINA (TSAR inputs using AIDA) computer models, which assess the effect of attacks on the sortie generation capabilities of airbases. Among the more significant features of the new versions of the models are those that permit (1) austere dispersed operating bases, (2) attacks on the minimum operating surface defined after prior attacks, (3) multistep parts and equipment repairs, (4) repair of damaged aircraft shelters, (5) improved fidelity in the runway repair representation, and (6) damage generated by the delayed detonation of unexploded ordnance. This volume provides a full description of the logic used in the TSAR model, as well as an understanding of interrelations among the many elements of the logic.
