A Tactical Decision Aid (TDA) for mixed minefield clearance, JAVAMIX, was designed, developed and tested. The TDA uses a Monte Carlo Simulation and it is based on the Monte Carlo option of the TDA MIXER (Washburn, 1995). The JAVAMIX GUI allows the user to introduce different plans based on the sweep and resource types available and mine types expected. To clear the minefield the user is asked to choose a parameter file and to introduce a plan. Output tables are presented in a DOS window and permit the user to easily visualize if the chosen plan is tactically executable. The design of the system permits future developments such as the implementation of MIXERâ s other options and the introduction of new parameters.
