Compared to fighting in the open field, military operations in urban terrain is the greater challenge. It's riskier and costlier in manpower, assets, and time. Warfighting in cities adds so many challenges that most commanders would prefer to bypass population centers. But that is not always possible. 21st Century Systems, Inc. believes there is a timely opportunity to provide the urban commander with a weapon selection decision aiding tool for urban tactical operations. AmmoSIM is an intelligent agent-based urban tactical decision aid for platoon and company commanders tasked with planning and executing military operations in urban terrain. It is intended to provide warfighters with a tool to simulate and validate targeting effects in an urban terrain environment on the fly. AmmoSIM calculates the ballistic trajectory of a given munition and models the effects on the target and surrounding area. It will enable warfighters to more accurately predict where directed fires may hit and alert them to possible obstructions and structures or areas to avoid (e.g. hospitals, hazardous material storage facilities, LOCs, etc.). It will also model atmospheric plume effects of particulates released into the atmosphere as a result of a hit in a chemical or WMD storage area.
