Abstract : This document serves as a user's guide to the Army Tank Live-Fire Automated Scoring Tool (ATLAST). ATLAST is a PC compatible computer application that automates tank gunnery scoring and analysis for all U.S. Army main battle tanks and the Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle. This user's guide describes ATLAST's installation and provides precise explanations of the analysis reports. A breakdown of the raw relational database is included in Appendix A (for those wishing to export data to other database management systems for further analysis). In Appendix B the configuration (input file) is described. This provides the necessary information needed to modify gunnery scenarios, scoring matrices, and many other parameters.
