Abstract:

The purpose of this work is to present the documentation and developmental history of the combined arms wargaming simulation titled COMPUTER ASSISTED MAP MANEUVER SYSTEM. This simulation system was developed by the author for use as a tactical training technique, in support of the training being offered at the U.S. Army Armor School, Fort Knox, Kentucky. Specifically discussed are the programs, with their underlying math models, the data files, and the simulation techniques. The procedures and details outlines are applicable to the simulations presented and were tailored to the use of the system as a tactical training vehicle for the lower to mid range leaders of combat formations. This simulation system has provided a viable alternative to the very costly field maneuvers it is replacing within the military education system. The uniqueness of this application lies in its ability to represent a dynamic battlefield situation under a time produced stressful environment, in which the participant must execute command and control of his assets. It thereby reinforces previously acquired skills and motivates additional study.
