Abstract:

This thesis provides the general design logic for a computer representation of the Field Artillerys precision guided munition- Copperhead. The design has been specifically structured to enable its integration into the Simulation of Tactical Alternative Responses STAR Model. STAR is a stochastic force-on-force combat simulation. Routines and events are developed which portray the target identification, target selection, firing, and impact phases of the Copperhead system. Interface points of the new logic with the current STAR model are identified and the modifications required to support the new system are discussed. Also presented is an overview of STARs current Field Artillery module. Key Copperhead system characteristics which influence the model are also described. Author
