Abstract:

This report discusses the U.S. Army Technology Base RD work units which are relevant to the Fire Support Mission Area. A simple effectiveness model is developed and used to identify needed technological improvements in cannon and rocket fire. RD work units are then examined in light of their potential contribution to combat effectiveness. Areas of insufficient RD activity are identified and some relevant management issues are discussed.
