Abstract : The Tri-Service Cloud Modeling Program was established by OUSDR&E and is chaired by the Phillips Laboratory, Geophysics Directorate. As part of this program the CIDOS conference is held at 18 month intervals. This forum is attended by Researchers and DoD systems designers/users to exchange information on requirements and ongoing research for cloud effects on weapon, communication, and surveillance systems. The theme of CIDOS-97 is 'Cloud Effects in War Gaming, Modeling and Simulation.' Three days of CIDOS-97 were devoted to oral and poster presentations in seven sessions: (1) Introduction; (2) Program Reviews; (3) Cloud M&S Applications to War Gaming and Studies and Analyses; (4) Cloud and Cloud Effects Modeling; (5) Cloud Prediction; (6) Measurement Systems and Sensors; (7) Cloud Datasets. Summaries of these presentations are included in this report.
