Abstract : This report contains three independent but closely related papers which were written to address a request by Mr. Walter Hoffis, Deputy Undersecretary of the Army, Operations Reseerch. Each paper was presented at a symposium in FY96 and was published in the respective symposium proceedings: 1 'A VIL Taxonomy for Analyzing Ballistic Live Fire Events,' 46th Annual Bomb and Warhead Technical Symposium, held at Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA, May 13-15, 1996; 2 'Modeling Ballistic Live-Fire Events,' 7th Annual TARDEC Symposium, held at Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA, March 26-28, 1996; and 3 'Developments in Modeling Ballistic Live-Fire Events,' 16th International Symposium on Ballistics, held in San Francisco, CA, September 23-28, 1996. In combination, this trilogy documents the current state of the art in Army capabilities and specifies the future directions for modeling live-fire events in support of requirements specified in United States Code, Title 10, Section 2366, Chapter 139, National Defense Authorization Act for FY87, 'Live Fire Testing.'
