Abstract : The study is to determine the preferred nontactical gap-crossing bridge system(s) and to recommend the most cost effective to be fielded by 1980 for two theaters of operation. It is also to serve as the basis for continuing development and acquisition. The approach is to simulate the terrain and combat environments in which the bridges must be constructed. Once bridges have been designed, a reliable statistical sample of main supply routes are constructed to obtain an optimized bridge type mix. Various decisional information on the bridge mixes is also provided. (Author)
