Abstract:

THEATER-LEVEL MISSION ANALYSIS COMPUTER MODELS ARE GENERALLY RUNTIME EFFICIENT, YET LACK THE CAPABILITY OF MODELING EVENTS IN DETAIL. IN MOST SCENARIOS, CERTAIN EVENT OUTCOMES ARE HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO DETAILED MODELING PARAMETERS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE THEATHER-LEVEL MODEL. A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM IS TO INTERFACE THE THEATER-LEVEL MODEL TO A LOWER-LEVEL MODEL THAT CAN SIMULATE PARTICULAR EVENTS IN MORE DETAIL. THUS, RUNTIME EFFICIENCY MAY BE PRESERVED WHILE CERTAIN EVENTS MAY BE MODELED IN DETAIL AS REQUIRED. THIS STUDY WILL INVESTIGATE THE INTERFACING OF SUPPERSSOR, A LEVEL-III MISSION ANALYSIS MODEL TO ACE, A LEVEL-IV THEATHER MODEL. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WILL INCLUDE (1) DEFINING THOSE EVENTS IN ACE TO BE MODELED IN MORE DETAIL, (2) ANALYZING ACE TO DETERMINE MODEL STRUCTURE AND TO LOCATE CRITICAL EVENTS IN THE MODEL, (3) ANALYZING SUPPRESSOR TO ESTABLISH SCENARIO AND TYPE DATA BASES REQUIRED TO MODEL THE ACE EVENTS, AND (4) DEVELOP THE METHODOLOGY FOR TRANSFERRING NECESSARY DATA BETWEEN THE MODELS. A BYPRODUCT OF ESTABLISHING THE ACE-SUPPRESSOR INTERFACE METHODOLOGY IS AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE ACE MODEL AND HOW IT CAN BE INTERFACED TO OTHER ENTITIES IN ADDITION TO SUPPRESSOR. PHASE "IA" MATCHING GRANTS FROM NEW YORK STATE WILL CONTINUE THE STUDY. A TOP-DOWN DESIGN OF THE ACE-SUPPRESSOR INTERFACE WILL BE DEVELOPED. ADDITIONALLY, BASED ON KNOWLEDGE OBTAINED IN PHASE I, AN INTERFACE METHODOLOGY BETWEEN ACE AND A TERRAIN MASKING DATA BASE WILL BE ESTABLISHED.
