Abstract
This thesis presents a dynamic study of the target selection process of the current generation of U. S. Army tank commanders. Eleven relevant factors were investigated utilizing a 1/16 Replication of the 2 factorial experimental design. The development and basic characteristics of this experimental design are discussed as an introduction to the actual experiment conducted. The methodology used in conducting the experiment as well as the major effort devoted to establishing the data base are presented prior to the discussion of the analysis. Factors and interactions impacting significantly on the target selection process were identified using analysis of variance techniques and an interpretation of these is given. A target selection model based on a best fit regression on the data is proposed as a viable alternative to those target selection models presently used in existing high resolution combined arms simulation models.
