Abstract:

A computer-drive interactive aid for movement analysis, called MOVANAID, has been developed and is described in this report. The aid, which has been designed to be of assistance in the performance of certain Army intelligence processing tasks in a tactical environment, can compute fastest travel times and paths through road networks for military units of various types, as well as fastest times in which simultaneous maneuvers of certain types can be completed. Military situations in which the aid might be useful are discussed, and the manner in which users interact with the aid is described. Details about the analytic basis upon which the aid has been constructed, together with a discussion of the method in which the aid has been computer implemented, are also given. Ideas for ways in which the capabilities of the aid can be extended are discussed. Author
