Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Deep Attack Weapons Mix Study (DAWMS)
DEFENSE SCIENCE BOARD WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This is the final report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on the Deep Attack Weapons Mix Study DAWMS Methodology. Included is an annotated viewgraph report on Phase I weapons optimization as well as a letter report on the Phase II methodology trade-offs of weapon-delivery platforms. The Task Force was charged to provide an independent assessment of the analytical tools and models employed in the DAWMS effort. The significant issue that the Task Force discovered in their review of DAWMS methodology is the great difficulty in realistically modeling large-scale joint military operations against opposing forces. As a result, the Task Force believes that it is important for the Department to move forward with the development of greatly improved approaches for modeling such large-scale operations. Only by such an advance will it be possible to evaluate the capabilities of various force-structure options as well as the impact of new tactics and weapon systems.
