Abstract : THE REASON FOR PERFORMING THE STUDY is to learn more about the indirect fire algorithms in the Attrition Calibration (ATCAL) process. Specifically, the question to answer is how well does ATCAL extrapolate indirect fire using calibrated parameters to compute attrition and rounds fired in theater models. The ATCAL model is the linkage between high-resolution, tactical level and low-resolution, theater-level modeling. THE STUDY SPONSOR is the Director, US Army Concepts Analysis Agency (CAA). THE STUDY OBJECTIVES are to: (1) Examine indirect fire logic in ATCAL. (2) Provide observations on how well the indirect fire logic performs. THE SCOPE OF THE STUDY includes two main focuses, both of which center around artillery issues. The first is research oriented and involves examining other models, recording historical trends and interviewing experts. Data results from this phase will be compared to artillery results generated by using the ATCAL process. The second focus is analytically oriented and involves examining the limitations of ATCAL. The Army Integrated Mobilization Study, FY 1999 (AIMS 99) Combat Sample Generator (COSAGE) boards are used as the base case. (KAR) P. 5
