This paper introduces a logistics and transportation simulation that can be used to provide insights into potential outcomes of proposed military deployment plans. More specifically, we model a large-scale real-world military deployment planning problem (DPP) that involves planning the movement of military units from their home bases to their final(More)
The Deployment Planning Problem (DPP) for military units may in general be defined as the problem of planning the movement of geographically dispersed military units from their home bases to their final destinations using different transportation assets and a multimodal transportation network while obeying the constraints of a time-phased force deployment(More)
Modeling of artillery fire is a well studied concept in military simulations. There are known models which give accurate results, but they usually assume flat terrain with no obstacles. We develop an artillery fire model that takes terrain shapes into account, extending the previous models. We implemented the extended model and used it to compute the(More)

This paper presents some innovations for overcoming shortcomings in the current state-of-the-art for the hierarchy-of-models approach to modeling aggregated-force attrition in ground-combat models. The basic concept of such an approach for modeling large-scale system behavior is presented, together with the theoretical underpinnings for modeling attrition(More)
