Compared to fighting in the open field, military operations in urban terrain (i.e., man-made, built-up areas) is the greater challenge. It is riskier and costlier in manpower, resources, and time. The urban environment easily provides the in-place enemy with settings for ambush, places to hide, civilians as shields for unscrupulous use, and many escape routes - above and below ground. Warfighting in cities adds so many challenges that most commanders would prefer to bypass population centers. How can we give our soldiers the advantage to this urban warfare challenge? In a word, information. 21st Century Systems, Inc (21CSI) sees an opportunity to provide the urban commander critical information using a weapon selection decision aiding tool during military tactical operations. The tool, entitled "AmmoSIM," will be used during action in the streets of the urban area. As the name implies, it simulates the direct employment and secondary effects of a specified set of weapon system components against a given target and the target environment. The tool would be used in conjunction with other terrain analysis systems and will provide two useful modes - single shot and barrage. This SBIR will culminate in an agent-based urban weapon-pairing management tool called AmmoSIM: a unique product.
