Abstract : This study has been conducted to define typical battlefield behaviors for five groups of hostiles and neutrals who might be encountered in combat: (1) Standard Elite Troops, (2) Average Irregulars, (3) Isolated Criminals, (4) Frightened Civilians, and (5) Unfriendly Civilians. Results can be used in modeling computer-controlled hostiles and neutrals (CCH/Ns) in the joint Marine Corps-Navy Team Tactical Engagement Simulator (TTES), a deployable, flexible virtual reality training system. Military personnel and civilian law enforcement officers will use TTES under a wide variety of simulated urban and rural situations to enhance marksmanship skills and to learn to discriminate among possible adversaries, to determine intent and level of hostility, and to decide whether to engage or to withhold fire.
