Abstract:

GROUNDWARS is a stochastic, two-sided, event-sequenced weapon systems effectiveness model which provides the results of a land duel between two homogeneous forces. The model simulates individual weapon systems and employs Monte Carlo probability theory as its primary solution technique. GROUNDWARS is an outgrowth of the BRL TANKWARS Model. The original model has been modified by AMSAA to include additional methodology improvements, including dynamic target acquisition, near-simultaneous engagements, artillery effects, line-of-sight enhancements, survivability enhancements smoke grenades, active protection, statistical confidence and testing. GROUNDWARS, stochastic, event-sequenced, effectiveness, Monte Carlo, land duel, homogeneous forces, TANKWARS, target acquisition, combat survivability.
