Abstract : This report documents an investigation into using operational field test data as inputs into the Janus high resolution model using a process that is collectively known as Model Test Model (MTM). After a description of MTM, the report describes the Javelin Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (10Th) which provided the field data. An overview of the Javelin antitank weapon and the field instrumentation used to capture IOTE data is presented. The report highlights the problems associated with terrain effects and Ph and Pk values when incorporated into the Janus model. A description of Janus modeling modifications required to portray the Javelin is discussed. The report concludes with suggested improvements to enhance the MTM process.
