Abstract:

Terrain and environmental factors have long played a critical role in determining the success of an army in battlefield conditions. A ground forces commander can gain a considerable advantage by being able to better predict the effects that terrain and weather will have on visibility, ground mobility, and weapons systems. The advanced knowledge of environmental effects can be used to better counter the enemys actions. The objective of the AirLand Battlefield Environment ALBE program is to provide topographic and environmental expertise in the form of graphic map overlays produced by tactical decision aid TDA software models.
