COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
SE485 COMBAT MODELING 2020 1 Systems Engineering 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course explores the theoretical and practical issues in combat modeling and simulation - the study of combat systems, tactics, and the battlefield environment in conflicts between opposing forces. The course focuses on models and algorithms used in state-of-the-art combat simulations, and techniques for analyzing their effects. Major topics of investigation include functional analysis to support modeling using functional flow diagrams and/or IDEF0 models, combat attrition models, search and detection methods, terrain representation, and measures of effectiveness. Cadets learn to manipulate 3D visual and system characteristic databases to build and test virtual prototypes of new combat system designs. Application of design of experiments and statistical analysis methods assist cadets in assessing the effectiveness of weapons systems, doctrine, and tactics on the future battlefield. The cadet can apply the concepts learned in this course to evaluate potential new Army combat systems, force structures, or doctrinal changes. The techniques taught in this course are a significant part of the Systems Decision Process (SDP) as they encourage creative and independent thought that applies mathematical, physical, and computer sciences to solve future technological problems. Ethical implications in the development and use of combat models also are discussed.
LESSONS: 35 @ 75 min (0.000 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Course projects will require significant (about 18 hours) of out of class time.
