Abstract:

The DIVWAG Model is a computerized wargame model which has been successfully run in prior applications as a tactics model. The model has been modified to determine the difference in effectiveness of field artillery caused by varying system parameters. Rodman Laboratory is using DIVWAG is a simulation mode. In this model of operation, once a game has been completed, a representative period of play is selected for further analysis. The data base and gamer inputs for the start of the period are still available. The model can be exercised independent of the gamer staff and the original output produced. Data base changes are made to reflect variations in artillery performance parameters such as range, mobility, vulnerability, target acquisition, weapon error, response time, rate of fire, etc. Effectiveness indicators to assess the change in effectiveness due to the parametric variations in artillery performance parameters have been determined. Graphical methods have been developed to visually display output e.g., different red blue target types engaged during a period of play by a blue red artillery battery as a function of range and game time.
