Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


III.I.08. Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT). By the end of FY00, demonstrate a full spectrum, robust MOUT operational capability for small units that seamlessly integrates and aggregates the technologies of participating ATDs, TDs, and other technology developments in the areas of MOUT C4I, Survivability, Engagement, and Modeling & Simulation (M&S). Joint field exercises will be conducted with participation by dismounted soldiers, Special Operations Forces, and the Marine Corps. Demonstrations will include tactically realistic scenarios which will test individual and small unit performance in stressful MOUT environments to assess the operational interoperability of the MOUT system of systems. M&S will be used to facilitate mission planning and rehearsal, and augment quantification of performance enhancements. Minimum goals include: 50 percent increase in situational awareness at all levels and 20 percent increase in force survivability. Through FY01 and FY02, provide follow-on technical support to MOUT ACTD residuals. This STO is an integrated component of the MOUT ACTD.

Supports: Upgrades to Land Warrior
