TDF (Tactics Development Framework)


The Tactics Development Framework (TDF) is a tool used to model tactics in military planning. It is based on the Prometheus Design Tool (PDT), which is a framework for designing and modeling complex systems. TDF extends the capabilities of PDT by adding support for tactics modeling, which is the process of designing and implementing strategies and actions that can be executed in a military context. TDF is used to model and analyze the behavior of complex systems, including military systems, and to help develop effective tactics for a variety of scenarios.
