Many current army combat simulation models require digitized terrain inputs for their execution, resulting in a costly and time-consuming operation. A methodology to generate parametric terrain as a function of the number of hill masses and the height, location, spread, and slope of the hills is presented in this paper. Modified bivariate normal (MBVN) distribution function and a linear function cutting the MBVN function are employed to achieve the terrain representation. Analysis of various terrain parameter values was conducted and the significant trends resulting from the study are described. Finally, recommendations for future enhancement of the model are given.
