MetadataShow full item record
A probablistic event store computer simulation of the artillery direct fire support system at brigade level is presented. The purpose of the model is to serve as a tool in evaluating changes in artillery fire support system effectiveness as system and battlefield parameters are varied. Parameters which are variable in the model pertain to the geometric configuration of the battlefield, artillery weapon employment configurations, artillery weapon ballistic parameters, weapon lethality, tax-get configuration and vulnerability, artillery system time parameters, weapon position accuracy parameters, and target location accuracy parameters. A description of the model and a FORTRAN IV program listing are provided.
