Scatterable mines are currently being evaluated in the material acquisition process. This new concept of landmines will be examined by an analysis of field experiment data provided by the Combat Developments Experimentation Command (CDEC) , Fort Ord, California. An experimental design and analysis plan is presented to measure the effectiveness of scatterable mines. The experimental design considered two models. A "normal" model is designed without considering CDEC's instrumentation, equipment, and personnel, and a "modified" model which takes into consideration CDEC's limitations. The experimental design, analysis methodology, and a hypothetical example are presented to indicate implementation of the "modified" model. Finally, a comparison of the "modified" model is made with CDEC's "Tactical Effectiveness of Mines in the Armor Weapons System" model design. Dynamic measures of effectiveness are used to discriminate between levels of five factors (e.g., location of minefield, type of minefield, threat tactic, minefield density, defensive force mix) and to determine if there is a synergistic effect with employment of scatterable mines.
