|Summary||One of the most critical factors in the success of operations in irregular warfare is an understanding of the civilian populace in the area of operations and the underlying factors that influence beliefs, attitudes, intentions and behaviors. This research will use state-of-the-art computational experiments to explore and leverage the agent based civilian population in stability operations model prototype developed by TRAC-MTRY and NPS. This model focuses on the civilian population and the political, military, economic, social, information and infrastructure variables in the operational environment, which impact the population's beliefs, attitudes, intentions and behaviors. It blends a variety of carefully selected social science theories with current military doctrine. The primary customers for this project is the Army and Marine Corps analysis community, but the products can benefit the operational, training, and experimentation communities with an improved understanding of the methods required to develop valid data and models. The tools, methods and algorithms developed from this effort will have broad applicability to various M&S communities.|
