Abstract
THE U.S. ARMY HAS A NEED TO ESTIMATE WHETHER DIFFERENCES ARE SIGNIFICANT IN SMOKE/OBSCURANT EFFECTIVENESS FOR A SINGLE MUNITION FROM ONE TIME TO ANOTHER OR FOR TWO MUNITIONS UNDER SIMILAR CONDITIONS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP A FRAMEWORK FOR ACCOUNTING FOR THE INFLUENCE OF METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS ON THESE DIFFERENCES, AS WELL AS THE INFLUENCE OF ERRORS IN OBSERVED DATA AND THE EFFECTS OF STOCHASTIC FLUCTUATIONS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE TESTED WITH U.S. ARMY SMOKE/OBSCURANT FIELD TRIAL DATA. RECOMMENDATIONS WILL BE MADE ON THE OPTIMUM COMPONENTS OF THE PREDICTIVE SYSTEM AND ON FUTURE FIELD PROGRAMS THAT COULD BE USED TO FUTHER TEST SYSTEM.
