Abstract:

This report describes procedures used by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station to develop and structure digital terrain and mobility data bases for the CARMONETTE and AMSWAG models. Data bases were constructed for each model using 100-m grid cells or arrays. For the CARMONETTE model, data were developed on roads, topography, vegetation, terrain cover and concealment, and cross-country mobility. The data developed for the AMSWAG model consisted of 25 terrain parameters and 9 cover and concealment related parameters. Digital data bases were developed on each of six 150,000 quadrangles in the Federal Republic of Germany. These data bases were used by the U. S. Army TRADOC Systems Analysis Activity in support of the Engineer-Family of Systems Study E-FOSS. Author
