Abstract:

Intervisibility characteristics are critical to ground combat forces in shaping results of U.S. Army operational tests. An important question is Are the results of a test conducted at a specific test site valid for a different deployment site The thesis develops a methodology to help answer this question. It commences by tracing the background studies of intervisibility analysis, and then compares by computer simulation the intervisibility characteristics of several sites, and determine which sites are most nearly alike. Transformation equations are developed to facilitate extrapolation of certain continental United States CONUS test results to selected outside continental United States OCONUS sites.
