The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the effects of four different types of scout vehicles when performing a zone reconnaissance as part of a battalion movement-to-contact. The four different types are the current HMMWV (Highly Mobile Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle), and three variants of the future scout vehicle (heavy, moderate, and light). The analysis used the Janus(A) High Resolution Combat Model with a southwest Asia scenario. Operators at Fort Knox, KY and at the Naval Postgraduate School conducted the simulation. Six measures of effectiveness (MOEs) were used in the study. To detect any significant differences between the vehicles each alternative was compared using Scheffe's and Tukey's Methods of Multiple Comparisons. The Hierarchical Additive Weighting Method was used to rank the alternatives to determine the best vehicle suited for conducting this specific mission. The results from the data collected from both sets of operators indicate that the heavy variant of the FSV is the best vehicle for the zone reconnaissance mission.
