Abstract
AN OPPORTUNITY EXISTS TO DEVELOP A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYTICAL SIMULATION OF FIRE CONTROL PROCESSES OF INDIRECT FIRE. THE INVESTIGATOR WILL BE ABLE TO DEVELOP BOTH STANDARD AND CONCEPTUAL FIRE CONTROL SYSTEMS AND EVALUATE THEIR EFFECTIVENESS IN A USER DEFINED THREAT ENVIRONMENT. AS A RESULT OF THE ADVANCES OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE AREAS OF COMPUTER ARCHITECTURES AND GRAPHICS, AS WELL AS THE INCREASED APPLICATION OF EXPERT AND KNOWLEDGE-BASED SYSTEMS CONCEPTS TO COMPLEX PROBLEMS, THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTEGRATED INDIRECT FIRE SIMULATION ON A PC BASED COMPUTER IS WELL WITHIN THE REALM OF FEASIBILITY. THIS WOULD PROVIDE THE USER THE CAPABILITY TO CHARACTERIZE A FIRE CONTROL SYSTEM AND EVALUATE THE PROCESSES AT GIVEN NODES OF THE SIMULATION UNTIL FINAL EFFECTS ON THE TARGET HAVE BEEN DETERMINED. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL COMPLEMENT THE FIELD ARTILLERY AFAS EFFORT. AS CURRENTLY CONCEIVED, ONLY TECHNICAL FIRE CONTROL IS BEING EMBEDDED INTO THE AFGAS AND TACTICAL FIRE CONTROL IS TO BE CONDUCTED AT PLATOON OR HIGHER. IN ADDITION, THIS EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A USABLE TOOL TO ASSIST THE FIELD ARTILLERY AND OTHER AGENCIES IN DEFINING THOSE AREAS IN DELIVERY OF INDIRECT FIRE THAT WILL GENERATE THE BEST CHANCE OF DELIVERING ACCURACY AND EFFECTIVE FIRES.
