Abstract:

ARM Ammunition Resupply Model is an interactivebatch representation of Class V flow from the corps support area CSA to the weapon. The model receives a file consisting of a record of ammunition usage by unit by ammunition type from a combat simulation presently, the simulation being used is METRO. The ARM using a preloaded data base of ammunition handling procedures and capabilities represents the flow of ammunition as it would have occurred within the battle. The unit status over time is indicative of the capability of the system to supply ammunition to the weapons and the reasonableness of the firing doctrine used within the attrition simulation given the ammunition resupply system carrying capabilities. ARM is written in FORTRAN IV and is machine independent with the exception of the subroutine that reads the file created by the attrition model. Author
