Abstract : The JMEM/SS Model for the Direct Fire Computer Program was developed to evaluate direct fire projectile warhead kill mechanisms against typical battlefield tactical elements such as armored vehicles. Kinetic energy and shaped charge rounds characterize the projectile warheads most frequently employed by the Simulation Model. The program utilizes a Monte Carlo sampling technique to determine round aimpoints, round impact points, target kills, and time to kill values. After completion of all Monte Carlo trials, successive Pk and Ph trial results are accumulated and reduced to mean values for program output which includes mean target Pk data, mean time Pk data, mean target Ph data, mean time Ph data, and the average number of rounds fired per kill
