Abstract:

This thesis discusses the lack of computer model-field experiment interfaces which evolved from the separate development of the Armys more important models and field experiments. A data schema is proposed that will help solve the problem, particularly for future experimentation and model improvement work. The type of data to be collected are defined, and their sources are identified, using common Army planning and training tools. A technique is then developed that helps describe the more important events underlying combat processes. Finally, an example problem is given that demonstrates the use of the technique by interfacing the data obtained from a reconstructed trial from the TETAM field experiment with the DYNTACS combat simulation model.
