Abstract:

This work focused on a comparison of three methods for evaluating weapon scoresimportances in combat models. We also analyzed the ATCAL attrition calibration process in use at the U. S. Army Concepts Analysis Agency. This included a reformulation of the attrition equations at the heart of ATCAL in dimensionless form and certain approximations that reduce them to a system of non-linear polynomial equations. Finally, we investigated stochastic attrition models which use stochastic differential equations. COSAGE Combat Sample Generator data from a historically based Ardennes study was used in validation of our results.
