Abstract : The purpose of the report is to mathematically model the Field Artillery Destruction Mission. The author felt that advances in technology might allow the development of procedures that are more efficient than those currently in use. In particular TACFIRE, a computer based fire direction center, and the laser range-finder were taken into consideration. Using the capabilities resulting from these technological advances, a classical and Bayesian model of the destruction mission was developed. Each model was analyzed and conclusions were drawn regarding the appropriate model to use in a given situation. (Author)
