Abstract : This report is a catalog of the analytical simulation software packages available at the US Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command and at its contractors for use in virtual prototyping, which allow the modeling and evaluation of different aspects of military vehicle performance. Each model is represented by a short description, uses, current features, current limitations, input requirements, available outputs, computer requirements, cost to use/maintain/develop and a point of contact. Also included in the catalog are the physical simulation facilities or simulators used in the virtual prototyping process.
