Studies of Mobility, Agility and Survivability in the Land Combat Environment
Parry, Samuel H.
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes the results of research and analysis conducted in two major areas: -- (1) the Swedish S-Tank Agility/Survivability (STAGS) test, and (2) analysis of apparent acceleration and velocity of a moving target relative to a stationary firer. Reports on the results of four separate studies conducted for the STAGS Test are given. These reports include the proposed Analytical Plan for analysis of the experimental results, Analysis of Variance program and procedures, Mean Value Differential Analysis program and procedures, and String Statistics program and procedures. The second phase of the report is concerned with the quantification of the effects of mobility and agility on tank survivability. In particular procedures were developed to compute the apparent acceleration and velocity of a target moving at various speeds and accelerations and employing a variety of movement tactics. Complete documentation, including the programs, procedures, and results, are included in this phase of the report. Finally, data requirements from the STAGS Test to be used in conjunction with the apparent acceleration and velocity analysis are specified.
