Abstract:

Conventional mobility analysis is concerned with generating a speed prediction for one vehicle or a unit of vehicles operating in specified terrain to identify areas of immobilization and derive other information, such as time associated with traversing a given route. The risk-based approach moves beyond conventional mobility analysis by factoring in uncertainty concerning actual vehicle speed to present a range of speeds. This information can be used to derive useful and insightful decision aids and to plan for best-case or worst-case scenarios. This document presents the risk-based mobility methodology related applications, and methods for generating various products derived from this approach. The risk-based methodology was purposefully implemented into a known platform, the Comprehensive Army Mobility Model System - Developmental CAMMS-D, to meet the geographic information system, user-interface, and graphical display requirements for demonstration and to gain user feed-back. Consequently, a significant portion of this document concerned with the operation of CAMMS-D. Risk-based applications developed to provide insight for ground mobility assessments include identification of high-probability NOGO areas, maximum and minimum arrival times associated with identified mobility corridors, time contour analysis, named areas of interest, and others.
