Listings of the subroutines of the improved version of the TRACE simulation model and its three auxiliary data preprocessing programs. TRACE is a one-sided expected-value model that simulates the allocation and consumption of resources from a set of airbases in a combat environment, and estimates the results of applying a given set of tactical aircraft and air-to-ground conventional munitions against a specified array of enemy targets. The auxiliary programs are used to prepare input data for use by TRACE. All the programs are written in FORTRAN IV. (See also R-1733.) 122 pp.
