Abstract : The purpose of the work reported herein was to establish a standard traverse terrain description for the German theater of operation to serve as a traverse terrain data base for relevant mobility tests and computer model evaluation, too. Steps performed were: 1) the selection of a suitable traverse in cooperation with U.S. Army representatives and in succession; and 2) the establishment of a traverse terrain data base prior to the first vehicle tests. The mobility test program addressed above was aimed at generating wheeled vs. tracked vehicles mobility data as part of the NBC Surrogate Reconnaissance System performance evaluation program. Here, the U.S. Army Waterways Experiment Station (WES) had the key coordination role to design and specify a suitable vehicle test program. Keywords: Maps; Photographs.
