Abstract:

The Lethality Division of the Weapons Directorate of the United States Army Space and Missile Defense Command USASMDC has developed the Post Engagement Ground Effects Model PEGEM to provide chemical, biological, nuclear and high explosive weapons hazard assessment in the form of ground collateral effects. PEGEM is a fully automated end to end computer software simulation. PEGEM was initially developed to assess the results of fragmenting warhead and hit to kill MTK interceptors impacting with Theater Ballistic Missiles, but customer demand has dictated additional capabilities i.e., leaker and cruise missile assessment be built into the model. PEGEM represents a true multi-service effort with contributions from the Army, Navy, Air Force, as well as other government agencies and contractors. Output of the program is in the form of agent cloud positions and dimensions, coverage area, and estimating casualties at specified times of interest. PEGEM also supports the Army Unit Resiliency Analysis AURA model through dedicated outputs and Extended Air Defense Simulation Extended Air Defense Test Bed EADSIMEADTB with a real time Distributed Interactive Simulation DIS interface and a preprocessor standalone mode.
