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


VI.C.16. Soldier System Modeling (SSM). Develop an automated environment to enhance analytic capabilities and promote rigorous Soldier System cost/benefit analyses to quantify and evaluate equipment, operational policy, and training within a system context. By FY95, SSM will integrate models and data into a framework to facilitate multiple analytic functions with completion of the first generation system software for use in 21 CLW analyses. By FY96, provide modeling, simulation, and analysis supporting 21CLW field demonstration to quantify and maximize the viability/capability of proposed systems. By FY97, integrate into the ComputerMan Wound Ballistic Vulnerability Model the methodologies to assess vulnerability across the full range of MOSs. Conduct analyses to define optimal survivability, mobility, and lethality concepts. By FY99, provide a Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) compliant methodology to assess the results of the soldier system demonstrations and to provide a basis for future COEAs.

Supports: Force XXI Land Warrior.
