Abstract:

This thesis is directed at the derivation of several methodologies associated with the Airland Battle Research Model currently under development at the Naval Postgraduate Research School. Two systems are presented that derive aggregated distribution allocation plans involving enemy and friendly direct-fire weapon systems. A military tactical scenario is used to present and contrast both systems. Additionally, allocation and placement models for ground force maneuver units are presented. Specifically, these models demonstrate how military units are allocated and placed on a battle field by various levels of organization, The use of a transportation network illustrated implementation of the models. Keywords Simultaneous methodology, Sequential methodology, Priority scheme, Template, Avenues of approach, Probability of single shot kill and Combat Rate of Fire.
