Abstract:

This report describes an internship completed by the author with the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES, Vicksburg, MS. A statement of objectives was prepared prior to the internship to provide guidance for the experience and to allow for a meaningful assessment at its conclusion. WES operates on a reimbursable basis to support elements of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other agencies and provides basic and applied research, process and equipment development and testing, and engineering design services research. The first assignment was the development of the Han River Control System, a decision support system for support of military personnel in Korea The author was responsible for all technical, administrative, and management issues of this project on a daily basis. The second assignment was the integration of the Tactical Dam Analysis Model TACDAM into the AirLand Battlefield Environment Au3E hardwaresoftware system. This assignment was selected to provide exposure to a geographic information system GIS that integrated many different tactical applications. The third assignment involved validation of the Reservoir Outflow RESOUT Model. This assignment provided exposure to the Armys policy on verification, validation and accreditation of software. The fourth assignment involved integration of TACDAM and the RESOUT Model into the Obstacle Planning System OPS. This assignment provided the opportunity to pursue additional funding for the Military Hydrology Team.
