The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the feasibility of accrediting the Janus(A) combat model for the post-test modeling phase of an Army concept called Model-Test-Model. Specifically, tank engagement ranges collected from an operational field test are compared to similar ranges generated by simulation ofthe test in the Janus(A) combat model. An automated process is developed to convert position location data from the field test into Janus(A) format so that the simulation replicates the vehicles and routes used in the test. Means and distributions of tank engagement ranges are studied. The important conclusion of this thesis is that Janus(A) generates engagement ranges longer than those observed in the operational field test. Additionally, collection oftest data must be improved for Janus(A) to be accredited for engagement range analysis offield tests.
