Visual planning aid for movement of ground forces in operations other than war
MetadataShow full item record
The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 marked the change of the political and military situation worldwide. Peace keeping missions became more likely than major regional conflicts. However, the conventional combat simulations, which were developed for the combat between heavily armored forces could not handle these new situations. In these new missions the movement of ground forces becomes a major task for any commander. This thesis develops a software architecture of loosely coupled software components. These components are combined to simulate the movement of convoys. The simulation is implemented as an event step model. For visualization of the ongoing simulation a different component displays the convoy locations on a geographical display. The combination of both modules allows, the analyst to validate a given movement plan and to identify possible weak points and threats.
