Simulation of an Army Deep Operations Combat Decision-making Process
MetadataShow full item record
A model of an Army Deep Operations Coordination Cell (DOCC) Combat Decisionmaking process (CDP) is presented. The model was developed from U.S. Army doctrine and current U.S. Army Corps Command Centers. Each of the functions of the DOCC CDP were identified and linked together in a functional flow chart. The distribution for each of these individual functions durations were identified, and personnel requirements for each of the functions were assigned. This model was then tested through a simulation built by the author. The simulation was designed for use in analysis of the DOCC and other Command and Control organizations. The DOCC CDP then was tested using the performance characteristics of mission completion times. Once our baseline analysis was completed, we experimented with selective manpower reductions. We show that the overall manning of the DOCC CDP would be reduced from 100 percent of authorized levels to less than one third of the authorized levels without degrading baseline completion rates.

Sasao, Tsutomu; Matsuura, Munehiro; Butler, Jon T. (2005-09);The traditional problem in binary decision diagrams (BDDs) has been to minimize the number of nodes since this reduces the memory needed to store the BDD. Recently, a new problem has emerged: minimizing the average path ...
Spin stabilization of the ORION satellite using a thruster attitude control system with optimal control considerations Cunningham, Janet L.

Hydrazine thrusters are used as the control and are modeled by ideal, constant magnitude step functions. The system is normalized and ...
