dc.description.abstractThis thesis presents a study of a methodology for analyzing advanced technologies using the Janus(A) High Resolution Combat Model. The goal of this research was to verify that the methodology using Janus(A) gave expected or realistic results. The methodology used a case where the results were known: the addition of a long range direct fire weapon into a force on force battle. Both the weapon characteristics and force mixes were used as input parameters/ variables. A Central Composite Design experiment was conducted in Janus(A) to examine the relationship between the Long Range Tank (LRT) and the other tank killing systems in the force. The results of the research indicate that weapon system range is critically important in the Janus(A) model as is competent tactical positioning of the forces. The LRT significantly increased the destructive capability of the force as long as it was positioned in a tactically sound area. But, when overwhelmed by enemy forces, the LRT still contributed to the number of enemy kills, but the contribution to the survivability of friendly forces was not as evident. Response Surface Methodology was used to build a mathematical model of the relationship between the response and input variables of the experimenten_US
