KHAFJI: a combat simulation.

MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents a high resolution, discrete event driven combat simulation. This model was developed to facilitate the analysis of tactical options available to a small unit (companyplatoon) commander using artillery and multiple lanes in overcoming a minefield obstacle. KHAFJI is a high fidelity combat simulation written in SIM SCRIPT 1 1.5 with SIMGRAPHICS I. Employing user input parameters which define a minefield scenario, the model generates output which enables the user to compare various tactical options available to a maneuver commander in crossing a minefield. By using menu driven input screens, the user has a choice of multiple crossing lanes, size of crossing force, distribution of forces upon crossing lanes, multiple mine belts, and use of indirect fires against the minefield. Using SIMGRAPHICS I software, KHAFJI displays the minefield and the unit as it crosses the minefield. KHAFJI depicts each mine, each member of the crossing unit, and each impacting artillery round. The graphics provided by KHAFJI allows the user to see the crossing as it unfolds, thereby, reinforcing user confidence in the resultant data. When running multiple replications, graphics can be turned off to speed processing. An example of the type of analysis that can be performed with KHAFJI is presented in Chapter IV.
