MetadataShow full item record
During FFI-project 701, “Fremtidige panserbekjempelsesvåpen” (Future anti-tank weapons), a simulation program for tank/anti-tank warfare named SIMBA was developed. The program was meant to handle combat on maximum battalion level. Each tank and anti-tank system is modeled as a single unit. In addition to Tanks and anti-tank weapons, the model can also handle use of sensor fused and conventional artillery. The simulation model actually consists of four different programs. One is a preprosessor, in which the scenarios are specified. This is where one tells SIMBA what the initial situation looks like, and what the orders are for each separate unit. Then there is a simulation program, which does the actual simulation. Finally, there are two programs for postprocessing, one for studying a single simulation in detail, and one for examination of the statistics from many simulations. The model is stochastic, so each simulation could yield a different result. This document describes the source code for these four programs. It is aimed at those who wish to make changes in the codes and improve the model. Those who only need to know what the model does, and how to operate it, are referred to the user manual, (1).
