Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. Develop a capability to quickly assess the impact of the atmospheric environment on tactical operations. Enhance mission performance and improve simulation effectiveness by increasing the utilization of atmospheric data in simulations and mission rehearsal systems. OBJECTIVE. Provide visualization tools to analyze and interpret the tactical impacts of atmospheric environmental conditions. Develop objective techniques, data bases, and data access methodologies for incorporating atmospheric data into simulations used for training, mission planning and rehearsal, and in the Cost and Operational Effectiveness Analysis COEA process. APPROACH. Derive sensible weather parameters and develop data interfaces, automated processing techniques, and graphics software to display mesoscale model output and derived data for tactical assessment. Develop techniques for Navy simulation systems that allow them to access atmospheric data for the purpose of analyzing realistic impacts on tactical operations. Adapt standards established by the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office DMSO for formulating the interface between the atmospheric databases and the simulators. Utilize field demonstrations to solicit feedback from potential users and to gain user insight and acceptance.
