The new Army warfighting doctrine, AirLand Operations, is designed for the army of the 90's, a smaller army, but one which will be faced with global responsibilities. These responsibilities will range from fighting wars and regional conflicts, to conducting various peacetime operations in support of allies in the realm of Low Intensity Conflict. Our success under AirLand Operations will largely depend upon the ability of the Field Artillery to disrupt enemy C3 elements, and destroy troop formations from extended ranges early in the battle. The Artillery School (USAFAS) is currently developing several advanced systems to accomplish this mission. The focus of this thesis is the Artillery Attack Model (AAM). The AAM is a GAMS Mixed Integer Linear Programming model developed to assist USAFAS determine the Minimum Cost Weapon/Munition Mix and Allocation of Fires to targets in order to meet the commander's kill criteria on the future battlefield.
