Abstract:

Groundwars is a stochastic, two-sided, event-sequenced computer simulation, which Provides the results of a land duel between two forces. It models attacker movement and intervisibility based upon statistics from digitized terrain and intermittent obscurants. Groundwars models individual weapon systems and employs Monte Carlo probability theory as its solution technique. The model is primarily used to evaluate weapon system effectiveness. Groundwars can address ammunition expenditures, acquisition, delivery accuracy, vulnerability, lethality, rate of fire, disengagement policies, effect of line-of-sight due to terrain or obscurants, and the effect of various weapon classes. Version 6.5 incorporates new methodology to include Mis-ID and ID-call target acquisition, multiple weapons and ammunition per platform, electromagnetic gun, and some new MOEs.
