Abstract:

This report provides a summary of the Network Assessment Model NAM. The NAM is a communications performance assessment simulation under development by the U.S. Army Signal Center. The NAM represents the capability to model a specific architecture against a specific scenario. The model simulates each discrete event in the architecture being modeled and records the results, compiles summary statistics, and displays summary graphics representing the performance of the architecture. Current capabilities of NAM version 3.4 NAM3. 4 include area communications Mobile Subscriber Equipment MSE and Echelon Above Corps EAC-CIP. Combat Net Radio Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System SINCGARS and Improved High Frequency Radio System IHFR, Army Data Distribution System JTIDS and EPLRS, Battlefield Automated Systems BAS, post simulation analysis, force movement, line-of-sight radio wave loss propagation, network engineering, and threat. Capabilities currently under development Coding of a Packet Switching overlay for MSE and EAC-CIP is scheduled to be completed by Aug 90. The report also discusses two data bases that serve as inputs to the model Communications Data Base CDB, Operational Facilities OPFAC Data Base.
