Abstract: The Australian Army is seeking information addressing the combat effectiveness of their conceptual Enhanced Combat Force (in a 2015 timeframe). One of the main questions to be answered is how their manoeuvre concepts might need to change. To experiment with agent-based distillations we abstracted a problem based on Manoeuvre Operations in a Littoral Environment and the specific hypothesis to be tested was whether a small, mobile force with high situational awareness coupled with effective reach-back munitions could defeat a significantly larger force. The aim of this paper is to illustrate the application of Enhanced ISAAC Neural Simulation Toolkit (EINSTein), which is one of a growing number of agent-based distillations. We present some preliminary results against our hypothesis and make some initial observations on the potential utility of such models for land operations analyses.
