Course of Action Display and Evaluation Tool - CADET assists military planners in translating an initial maneuver course of action COAinto a detailed COA and war gaming it to determine feasibility. Begun as a Small Business Innovative Research SBlR project in l996, CADET moved on to Phase II under CECOM contract DAAB07-97-C-D313. With the completion of the Phase II effort in early 1999. CECOM extended development along the same lines with the award of contract DAAB07-99-C-K510. During the three years covered by this report CADET has evolved from a proof of concept into a working software program that can accept an initial COA from Battlefield Planning and Visualization-Windows BPVWin. Working with the planner in a series of interleaved usercomputer actions, the system details, resources, schedules, elaborates, and analyzes the COA. The results can he exported to a spreadsheet and also transferred seamlessly into BPVWin for animation, providing a useful view of the interaction of friendly and enemy units in a map-based, time and event driven scenario. CADET provides a highly interactive planning environment where the machine handles the science of war, freeing the human to focus his or her brainpower on the art of war.
