Abstract : The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has initiated a research effort to promote joint service standards for physics based environmental effects in the existing distributed modeling and simulation networks. Collectively, the project is known as Environmental Effects for Distributed Interactive Simulation (E2DIS). Research detailed in this report was within the E2DIS Demonstration Task effort. This effort used the Janus (A) combat model to simulate the environmental effects on weapons systems and study the resultant force-on-force interplay. In order to do this, a scenario was developed using Fort Hunter Liggett, California terrain. In this scenario, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) were used to search for a Ground Launched Cruise Missiles (GLCM) and SCUD Theater Ballistic Missiles (TBMs) and Transporter Erector Launchers (TELs). Once located, a Fiber Optic Guided Missile (FOG-M) was fired at the TEL. Weather parameters were changed and the scenario was repeated. Differences between the number of TEL detections in different weather conditions were recorded.
