Abstract
A PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A SIMULATION OF ONE-VERSUS-ONE HELICOPTER AIR-TO-AIR COMBAT IS PROPOSED. IT WILL PROVIDE A POWERFUL ANALYTIC TOOL FOR EXPLORING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF HELICOPTER DESIGNS, WEAPONS, AND SENSORS AS WELL AS TACTICS AND ENVIRONMENTS. THE EFFORT BUILDS UPON THE EXISTING TAC BRAWLER COMPUTER SIMULATION OF AIR-TO-AIR COMBAT INVOLVING FIXED WING AIRCRAFT. IT EMPLOYS EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION OF PILOT DECISION PROCESSES SUCH THAT SURPRISE, CONFUSION, AND THE UTILITY OF SENSOR INFORMATION ARE MODELED. THE SIMULATION WILL PROVIDE REALISTIC MODELING OF TERRAIN, ENEMY THREATS, COUNTERMEASURES AND TACTICS. THE MODEL WOULD BE CAPABLE OF BEING INTEGRATED INTO SIMULATORS AND TRAINING AIDS.
