Abstract:

This thesis compares helicopter engagement ranges from an operational field test to similar ranges generated by simulation of the test in JANUSA. The purpose is to analyze the feasibility of accrediting the JANUSA combat model for the Post-Test Modeling Phase of an Army concept called Model-Test- Model. Means and distributions of helicopter engagement ranges are analyzed. The JANUS engagement ranges are greater than those of the operational test. No common link between the two tests and the scenario is apparent. Other issues include time taken to ensure that a credible database is entered in JANUS and improvement of terrain and helicopter representation for a more realistic result.
