Abstract:

Previous thesis research has studied optimal time-sequential artillery fire distribution strategies in an attack scenario by considering a two-person, zero-sum, deterministic differential game. This past work is reviewed and extended by developing additional computational considerations i.e., manifold of discontinuity for the dual variables and incorporating these into an existing digital computer program for the determination of optimal time-sequential fire support strategies. The military significance and implications of the structure of an optimal fire distribution policy are discussed.
