Abstract:

In the effort to develop an optimum surveillance, target acquisition, and night observation STANO system for integration into the Army, numerous studies must be conducted. Many of these studies will use some form of wargaming to provide the data necessary for discrimination between alternative systems. In developing wargames or computer simulations to support the play of wargames, systems analysts must derive methodologies which will allow the portrayal of STANO systems with the degree of accuracy required by the evaluation to be made. The report provides systems analysts with a general methodology which may be used in the evaluation of STANO systems. The methodology may be used in evaluating any desired variations in materiel, doctrine, organization, or environment. Although presented as an aid to wargaming, the methodology may prove useful to any researcher as a means of explaining the relationship of materiel, doctrine, and organization as they function in a STANO system.
