Abstract:

TRAINING FOR MODERN TACTICAL COMBAT MISSIONS REQUIRES THE REAL TIME SIMULATION OF MULTIPLE AND DIVERSIFIED REACTIVE COORDINATED THREATS. CURRENT THREAT SIMULATION METHODOLOGIES AND SYSTEMS ... TO MEET THIS REQUIREMENT IN FOUR WAYS: 1) LACK OF DIVERSITY IN SIMULATEABLE THREAT TYPES, 2) INADEQUATE DECISION PROCESS MODELING RESULTING IN INACCURATE THREAT ACTIVITY, 3) SUBOPTIMUM ... OF MANPOWER, AND 4) LACK OF COORDINATED THREAT ACTIVITY BY INADEQUATE THREAT C3 MODELING RESULTING IN UNDERESTIMATED THREAT PERFORMANCE. AMHERST SYSTEMS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A REAL TIME REACTIVE COORDINATED THREAT SIMULATOR FOR TACTICAL COMBAT MISSION TRAINING. THE ABOVE CURRENT SIMULATION LIMITATIONS WILL BE EXPLICITLY ADDRESSED. THE DESIGN WILL INCORPORATE THE PROVEN BENEFITS OF FUNCTIONAL MODULARITY AND EVENT DRIVEN OPERTION. RULE BASED DECISION LOGIC AND C3 NETWORK MODELS WILL ENSURE ACCURATE THREAT ACTIVITY IN THE CONTEXT OF THREAT C3. THREAT SYSTEMS SUCH AS WEAPONS, AERODYNAMICS AND ACQUISITION AND TRACKING RADARS WILL BE SIMULATED BY PARAMETICS MODELS. THE THREAT SYSTEM MODELS WILL BE REPROGRAMMABLE AND WILL ACCEPT PARAMETER LISTS DESCRIBING THE CAPABILITIES AND RESOURCES OF THE THREAT SYSTEMS. DIFFERENT THREATS WILL BE IMPLEMENTABLE BY THE SPECIFICATION OF DIFFERENT PARAMETERS FOR THE THREAT SYSTEMS AND DIFFERENT RULES FOR THE DECISION LOGIC AND C3. SINCE THE THREAT EXISTS ENTIRELY AS PROCESSES IN THE SIMULATOR COMPUTER, ADDITIONAL THREATS WILL BE SIMULTANEOUSLY SIMULATED BY RUNNING MULTIPLE PROCESSES ON THE COMPUTER AND/OR BY CLUSTERING COMPUTERS.
