Abstract:

This thesis examines the Command, Control and Communications procedures of an amphibious assault wave. The examination is performed by the presentation of a model of the communication networks of a wave. Computer simulation results of the model are presented as an examination of the models parameter sensitivity. Modifications and further extensions of the basic model are also discussed. The model presented was originally designed for the LVTP7 tracked amphibious personnel carrier, the vehicle presently in the U.S. Marine Corps inventory. The model was also adapted to defined design parameters of the Landing Vehicle Assault LVA, the proposed successor to the LVTP7 tractor. Author
